The Longest Road

The main idea: All those who follow Jesus should be yearning for spiritual transformation of the heart, its desires, and conforming it to Christlikeness. This transformation is available to us here and now.

The challenge: It is not an easy, nor obvious path to true transformation of the heart. Our heads are full, we think one thing, but we do another. It takes hard work, constant dying to self, and a retraining that is only complete with faith in the work of the Holy Spirit.

The call: Have you been stopping short of the life God has called you to? Have you tried, but maybe fell short for one reason or another? Have you settled for less than what was offered? Do you feel that you are constantly fighting the same battles, wrestling with the same habits, but only fighting over the same ground?

How can we be transformed?
