If cumulative effect of all your discipleship has failed to change you, you've likely never fully surrendered to God and His will for your life. And perhaps your spiritual habits are weak, ineffective, or non-existent. But the life in Christ wasn't meant to be this way. God's idea is abundant life, dwelling together daily in dynamic relationship. God's hope is for our lives now to resemble/prepare us for life in eternity w/ Him. A transformed heart is possible. The life in Christ is designed to change you. Through the centuries, Christians have practiced certain Spiritual Habits or Disciplines that have facilitated meaningful and vibrant spiritual growth/maturity.
