What is Spiritual Formation? by Dallas Willard

Dallas Willard “Spiritual formation is the process of transforming the person into Christlikeness through transforming the essential parts of the person:
the mind, heart, spirit, body and soul…Spiritual transformation is not about ‘behavior modification.’ It is about changing the sources [the “roots”] of behavior…and the behavior will take care of itself…When they are right, the whole person simply steps into the way of Christ, and lives there with joy and strength. It is not a struggle —one of the lies that goes out about the spiritual life is that it is hard. No, no, it’s not hard — it’s the easy way. What’s hard is the other way.” From the videos on the Dallas Willard Center website, click on the Knowing Christ Conference 2013. You can see and hear Dallas in person and receive the impartation of Jesus doing in his life what he teaches in this quote.
