CHPL 598 Spiritual Assessment Assignment
CHPL 598 Spiritual Assessment Instructions Week Two
This assignment directs you toward an assessment of your spiritual life in its current form. Without knowing where you are spiritually, it will be impossible for you to move forward; therefore, this assignment will focus on an assessment of your spiritual life. It is the intention of this assignment to challenge you to assess your spiritual life so that you can see how you need to mature. In order to accomplish this goal, this assignment will require a level of vulnerability and honesty which can result in spiritual growth, if you embrace the process. As you write the assessment, approach it prayerfully. Approaching this assignment prayerfully will help you to be open to the Lord as He reveals how He wants to begin working in your heart, both during this course and throughout the rest of your life.
This assignment consists of seven parts:
Part 1: Explain the ways “lust of the flesh” can manifest itself in one’s life (I John2:16).
