According to Jesus, the spiritually formed person is the one who loves God and who loves others. This Companion Guide enables the reader to anchor the lessons of The Jesus Creed into the depths of one's heart. Reading The Jesus Creed is the first step; reciting throughout the day The Jesus Creed is the next step. Applying it to all of life is next. Each day's Guide applies the fundamental spiritual formation principle of each chapter in The Jesus Creed, and then encourages each of us to dig deeper in the Gospels to learn more about how The Jesus Creed shaped the life of Jesus and all those around him. What one learns is that The Jesus Creed is everywhere in the Gospels because it was at the heart of spiritual formation for Jesus.
