Colossians 3

I'm prepping for tonight's LIFEgroup meeting. We're going to talk about spiritual disciplines. I came across this post about spiritual formation. The whole thing is worth a read. I've clipped and edited the parts that make a fancy list.

We must remember when we read these passages that the “you” is plural. Paul did not have the individual in mind first and foremost, he had the community in mind. Again, it is fair to say that God’s intent is for us to be formed in his image within a community where our individuality can truely become all it was meant to become.
