Spiritual Direction #10



In this series of teaching tips on spiritual direction, I have been intentionally taking us on a journey toward Jesus.

Each of the spiritual disciplines of the heart that I have mentioned, which have included solitude, sanctuary, sensitivity, and silence, are steps on the journey of discipleship toward Jesus Christ. He is always the Telos, the Purpose, the End-goal of our spiritual direction.

Now, as we approach the Easter weekend, it might be a good opportunity to take stock and ask ourselves whether we are in good spiritual shape.

When Jesus came to this earth, He took on the shape of a servant (Philippians 2:7), and now, as His followers, we are required to take on His shape (Galatians 4:19). But what does that look like?

Jesus said to His followers, “…Whoever wants to be my disciple must deny themselves and take up his cross and follow me…” (Matthew 16:24).

Our mission is cruciformity. The long journey of discipleship shapes us for selflessness, sacrifice and service. Like clay being shaped for purpose, we are irresistibly formed into the image of the Son.
