I am being spiritually formed. You are being spiritually formed. We all are being spiritually formed. All the things about us that are not physical such as our emotions, our choices, and our thoughts make up our spiritual life. So even a person who has never heard of God has a spiritual life and is being formed in some way spiritual. Yes, it has always been this way. Hitler was spiritually formed, Timothy McVeigh was spiritually formed, Mother Teresa was spiritually formed, Billy Graham was spiritually formed. It comes down to how are we being spiritually formed and who or what is at the center of that formation?
“But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well.” Matthew 6:33
This kingdom that we seek is very much a spiritual reality that puts us in community with the risen Savior, Jesus Christ, and his Father God.
