How do we stop white-knuckling it in the spiritual life. And like David, see our negative destructive feelings crucified on the cross, replaced by feelings which reflect Jesus? To cultivate a life which doesn’t just avoid sin, but avoids temptation all together with a glad heart?

Think about how you think! In reference to the ideas & images which govern our thinking, we must think about the information and our ability to process these things well. Feeding ourselves Truth, and avoiding garbage are healthy spiritually formative practices we look at in this sermon.

In the midst of a shallow Christian culture which is sometimes a mile wide & an inch deep we witness the failure of leaders & others across the board. This lulls us into thinking we cannot ever see true spiritual transformation, but we can. Inspired by the Holy Spirit, Paul preached & lived it out, and calls just to emulate him in that journey of becoming like Christ.

The secular human-centered worldview, and the Christian Biblical worldview are mutually exclusive. One is wrong. One is right. We must choose between the two, and stop trying to meld the two together since they have irreconcilable differences.

The Christian cannot cut corners. They must deal with the whole self, warts & all. To not begin with the ruined soul, is to bypass repentance & not to understand salvation at all. But this does not usually enter into our polite conversations....although, it is imperative & very necessary for salvation & spiritual formation.
