Almost 500 years ago, the Protestant Reformation began when Martin Luther nailed the 95 theses to the door of the Wittenberg chapel. What role does reformation play today in the Church and in our own Christian journeys?
This week Josh and Chris discuss the need to make a habit of personal reformation. Human beings are wired to develop habits in response to a changing and chaotic world. Habits help us organize our lives and simplify routine tasks. Habits can greatly benefit our spiritual lives when applied thoughtfully to our spiritual disciplines and church services. However, habits can become toxic when they keep us from growing, and our sinful natures can keep us from seeing it. Our lives and churches can become entrenched in outdated customs due to past experiences and traditions. Reformation reminds us to challenge our status quo in order to bring fresh perspective to our walk with Christ.
