In this series of posts, I am sharing some short thoughts from each chapter of Dallas Willard’s book The Great Omission and then some brief personal reflections.
Chapter Twelve: Spiritual Disciplines, Spiritual Formation, and the Restoration of the Soul
Transformation requires our engagement by the power of God’s spirit, where we “plan for routine progress in wholeness” by engaging in spiritual the spiritual disciplines of silence, solitude, scripture memorization.
I appreciate Willard’s continual attention to the scripture that teaches God has a part and we have a part in transformation. It seems to me that we can’t do God’s part, and He won’t do ours. I haven’t engaged in memorizing entire sections of the scripture for a little while. I have a renewed desire to do this, remembering how transformative it has been in my life.
