To paraphrase Bob Mulholland, professor at Asbury Theological Seminary and groundbreaking spiritual formation author, “Spiritual formation is the life-long process of being constantly transformed by God’s love into the image of Christ for the sake of others/the world.”
Scripture always points to the mind’s importance to wholeness, from Proverbs 23:7 which suggests that we will be as we think in our hearts, to Romans 12:2 which suggest that we can be transformed by the renewing of our minds. John Wesley wrote on several occasions about the influence of the emotions on overall health.
John Wesley once told his preachers and leaders, you will not be able to carry out your ministry unless you take care of yourselves”. He was said to be physically fit even into his later years, exercising frequently, walking regularly, and even standing at his desk to keep from getting stagnant. These options to care for the body are designed to help leaders care for this physical aspect of our being.
