SEVEN Core Formational Habits

We have identified 7 practices we believe are critical to the spiritual formation of a follower of Jesus. These habits tap into ancient, proven ways while confronting modern, subversive challenges we face.

The video below gives an overview of all 7 in under 30 minutes!

Abiding Alone with God

We do not take the spiritual life seriously if we do not set aside some time to be with God and listen to Him.
- Henri Nouwen

Thinking Thoroughly Through Scripture

Help me understand the meaning of your precepts so that I can meditate on your wonders.
- Psalm 119:27

Eating in Intentional Community

"The Son of Man came eating and drinking..."
Matthew 11:19

Resting in Designed Rhythms

“Come to me, all of you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest."
Matthew 11:28

Fasting from Bodily Desires

“Fasting confirms our utter dependence upon God by finding in Him a source of sustenance beyond food.”
Dallas Willard

Slowing Down to Be Present

“'Hurry is the great enemy of spiritual life in our day. You must ruthlessly eliminate hurry from your life.'”
Dallas Willard

Curating Media with Intentionality

“...what you give your attention to is the person you become. Put another way: the mind is the portal to the soul, and what you fill your mind with will shape the trajectory of your character."
John Mark Comer

Resources that inspired Inhabit.

The Common Rule

Justin Whitmel Earley
The highly practical approach to building a system of relevant, Jesus-oriented habits was an inspiration and guide to us.

The Ruthless Elimination of Hurry

John Mark Comer
This book, in many ways, was where it all began, inspiring us to live different.

Atomic Habits

James Clear
The science of habits outlined in this secular work is a great resource for those who would implement Jesus-shaped habits.

The Spirit of the Disciplines

Dallas Willard
Willard pioneered a movement, recovering what it means to be a disciple of Jesus. We recommend anything he wrote!

"I want to be formed and shaped and molded into his image. To be more like him. To look like him. To walk at his pace. To respond to the world with his gentleness and grace. To reign and rule, build, create and cultivate under his loving and sacrificial authority.

"But to do that, I have to look in his face. Meet with him. Stay at his feet. Spend time with him. To live in repeatable practices and formations that consistently put myself before him. I have to shape my space and my habits away from my false self and push myself into becoming a true full image bearer of him."

- Jefferson Bethke

Meet us.

We're a couple of local pastors who joined the same pastoral staff team in Pryor Creek in Oklahoma because we are passionate about helping followers be formed into the likeness and character of Christ.
