There are 20 Spiritual Outcomes to work through. The 20 Outcomes can be used as a personal devotional experience; however, the best way to work through the Outcomes is in community. Community is part of God's provision for our growth and spiritual maturity, and we are provision for others as well. To that end, the ideal way to journey through the Outcomes is with a Small Group (7-12 people) or a Running Partner group of (2-4 people).
CONSIDER THE EXPERIENCE OF JOINING A GYM. The goal is to get physically healthy, right? From day one, you can work with a physical trainer who assesses your current condition. This gives you a picture of where you are and also points to your potential, with realistic goals of how to get there.
The trainer gives you a tour of the gym and shows you how to use the equipment to get the best results. Then you start a workout routine for each muscle group, complete with cardio, that you and the trainer go after together. Each time you leave the gym, there’s no doubt you’re becoming more physically healthy.
In the same way you join a gym to improve your physical health, we encourage you to join a Small Group to care for your spiritual health.
