021 Abundance Unhindered Part 2
As a follower of Jesus, you can experience a life of unhindered abundance right here on planet earth. How you ask? Through a process of Christ-formation. The Apostle Paul refers to this life-long process in 2 Corinthians 3:18 and spiritual leaders refer to it variously as progressive sanctification, spiritual formation, spiritual growth, or discipleship.
Simply put, Christ-formation is the overarching goal of the Christian life. It’s the result of a partnership between us and the Holy Spirit, lived out in close relationships with others and for the benefit of others in this world. It is the practical outcome of what Jesus invited people to when he called us to be his disciples. Christ-formation is to take on the character and the quality of life Jesus referred to as abundant (Jn. 10:10): a life characterized by more love, joy, peace, and hope than we ever dreamed possible (Gal. 5:22-23).
