The key to a fruitful spiritual life is the cultivation of a sanctified heart. This is what makes the difference between hoping to change “someday” and actually changing our thoughts and behaviors. Such a heart is developed in the simplicity of a life fixed on the words and ways of Jesus. This may not happen overnight because there are processes to walk through.
It starts when a life is unreservedly surrendered to Christ. This demands that we continually look onto Jesus, so that we can be strengthened to walk in the newness of life in Him. In Just BE! Bobby Perry describes the stages of the journey towards maturity in Christ and encourages every believer to be faithful to the process of the cross and its work in conforming us to the nature of Jesus. We must strive to be all that God originally designed us to BE!
