Luke 8:4-9, 11-15 The Big Idea: Our formation began in the womb and is an ongoing process. We experience re-formation through habits of obedience carried out in relationships. Understanding Re-Formation: ● The soil of fruitfulness is the HEART. Proverbs 4:20-26 ● The obstructions to fruitfulness are HEART ISSUES. ● The source of fruitfulness is JESUS. Jeremiah 17:5-9 Psalm 139:23-24 ● The process of fruitfulness is HEART RECLAMATION through OBEDIENCE. In our Culture there are two dominant models: 1. The self-discovery model of formation: ○ The goal is happiness. ○ The path is self-knowledge and self-acceptance. 2. The Self-improvement model of formation: ○ The goal is success. ○ The path is to cultivate skills, access resources, and solve problems. The Biblical Model of formation: To live and love like Jesus ○ The goal of Biblical formation is LOVE. ○ The path of Biblical formation is OBEDIENCE. John 15:9-17 How To Get Started: Use LOVE as your compass, the SCRIPTURES as your True North, and OBEDIENCE as your guide: Practices of mind Practices of speech Practices of heart Practices of body Practices of friendship Practices of service
