Personal Christian Retreat: An Outline for Spiritual Renewal

Regardless of how much or how little of the above information you use, do this simple exercise at the end. It makes a personal Christian retreat more than a one time event, but rather part of your ongoing sanctification. Ask God to show you one thing you should do differently because of your time. Remember: Salvation costs you nothing, but discipleship costs you everything.

“What a man is on his knees, that he is, and nothing more.” John Owen
