Bob's Talk and Bible Study Outlines

Frustration is a common experience among Christians longing for spiritual fulfillment, transformation and maturity.  What is the road to becoming truly spiritual and godly?  Are we praying often enough?  Are we praying in the right way and for the right things?  Are we reading and studying the Bible enough and in the right way?  Are we reading the right books?  What about fasting and meditation?  What should we be doing?  Are we doing enough? How do we become spiritual?  How do we become truly mature spiritually?

Fortunately, here is no process for becoming spiritual.  God graciously gives us everything we need for life and godliness.  In our spiritual journey we rely on Jesus Christ from the beginning to the very end.  Everything comes from God.  Christian spirituality is simply following Jesus and receiving from Him.  Spiritual formation is not a process of self-development.  God does the forming.  Our spiritual life is something graciously given to us by God.

So, why write about or spend any time focusing on our spiritual life?

We are called to pursue the Lord and to be receptive to what He has given us.  As we practice spiritual disciplines we take in and receive Godís nourishing Word that feeds our soul.  Jesus teaches us to pray and He intercedes for us.  We receive what we need from Him as we read, pray, meditate and fast.  God gives us His Spirit.  He gives us gifts.  In each encounter in spiritual battle God guides us with His Word and His Holy Spirit.  We depend on Him and He empowers us.  We need to be spiritually awake and ready for battle.  Even suffering, temptation and failure form us into the image of Jesus Christ as we learn to cling to Him and depend on Him.

My prayer is that you will be nourished and encouraged by these study outlines.
