How is your heart? What condition is your mind in? Are your arms in good shape? Are your knees prepared for some work outs? Does your spirit rejoice and respond within you? Is your voice being heard? These are just some of the questions that we will tackle together over the next number of weeks as we engage in a new sermon series entitled: "Marks of the Transformed Life." Each week we will carefully examine a different part of our (spiritual) body---including our hearts, minds, arms, knees, spirits, and voices--- and see if those parts are "in shape" with where God would have us to be. What we will discover is that as we work on each specific part of our body in Christ, we will find our entire being engaged in the transformation process. Sometimes it can be overwhelming to tackle everything at once, so this is an opportunity to be transformed one step, or "one part" at a time. Most people I know want to get in better shape... So, if you are one of those people hoping to get in better spiritual shape or looking for a change; if you are looking for growth; if you are looking to to be healthy and transformed, this is the sermon series for you! As with any attempt to get in shape, be warned that some effort is required! But the results are worth it. What parts of our bodies do we feel are in great shape? And which ones need some special attention? I invite us to "get in shape" this summer... I invite you to join me as we seek to be transformed and get in shape together. And I pray that this may be a holy road to a new body... a road that leaves us as we have never been before. Let's get in the best shape we have ever been in.
