Stripping Away the Layers of Resistance

One way of understanding the Christian spiritual growth journey is the unending stripping away of the layers of resistance, ego attachments and self reliance until we can truly see. Luke chapter 18 can be read in this way – as challenging us to continue to be stripped layer by layer of what is not yet transformed in us and growing until we too can see the Christ. (Luke 18. Twentieth Sunday after Pentecost, Proper 25)
