True spirituality

Posted: April 30, 2012 by doulos tou Theou in Christianity, The Christian Life

“True spirituality is not a superhuman religiosity; it is simply true humanity released from bondage to sin and renewed by the Holy Spirit. This is given to us as we grasp by faith the full content of Christ’s redemptive work: freedom from the guilt and power of sin, and newness of life through the indwelling and outpouring of his Spirit.”

— Richard F. Lovelace

(Downers Grove, Ill.: InterVarsity Press, 1973), 19-20
