Fear of God Devotional: What Areas Need Reformation Today?



How are we to engage in reformation today?

Kevin Swanson explains that we are called to not necessarily repeat the Reformation and address the same issues that they faced. Instead, we are called to reform the various issues relevant to and affecting the Church and family today. For instance, we are called to engage in the reformation of our children’s education.

We are called to bring reformation into the education sphere – otherwise, we may lose successive generations. Today, education has been institutionalized where personal discipleship and training has been removed and parents abdicate their responsibility to train their children to other, unbelieving individuals. While the Reformation took place nearly 500 years ago, semper reformanda (“always reforming”)  continues to be just as applicable today as it was then. 

Ephesians 4:21-23 (NKJV) – “[P]ut off, concerning your former conduct, the old man which grows corrupt according to the deceitful lusts, and be renewed in the spirit of your mind.”
