What is Jesus Shaped Spirituality? That is precisely the question that the InternetMonk tried to answer earlier this week. In short, it is about making sure that our Christianity is modeled after the teachings and examples given to us by the Jesus of the Bible.
If you’re a regular at this site, you know that I have written several posts on the examples given by Jesus. Click “Jesus’ Examples” in the Categories list at right for a complete listing. Each post is a specific lesson (or lessons) that we are to learn from something Jesus did himself, and in many cases encouraged his followers to go on doing. Jesus didn’t lecture on how to be a Christian; he went around ministering to people’s needs and told his followers to keep doing the same things they had witnessed him doing.
iMonk explains what a Jesus Shaped Spirituality looks like when we read the Scriptures and are challenged to conform to the image of Christ. It’s not about denomination, emerging or church tradition. It’s about each of us taking up our cross and following Jesus Christ. Check it out.
