When God makes spiritual changes in one’s life they often occur gradually, not instantly, says Saddleback Pastor Rick Warren.
“The Holy Spirit will make changes in your life far beyond anything you thought possible, but they’re not going to happen overnight,” says Warren in a recent installment of Pastor Rick’s Daily Hope.
Warren explains that when Saddleback Church began its “Decade of Destiny” he prayed that with the help of the Holy Spirit and through the Word of God, as well as help from small groups, the church would become more Christ-like over the decade to come.
The Saddleback pastor writes that he hopes for the same for his reading audience. “My prayer is the same for you, that in the next decade, you would grow in spiritual maturity and Christ-likeness and purpose.”
