Abstract

In this article certain central concepts in a selection of recent definitions of Reformed spirituality are investigated. These definitions are contextualized in order to direct the investigation of spirituality in Romans 12. After a justification for the selection of specifically Romans 12 as focus area for this article, certain elements regarding spirituality in Romans 12 are highlighted. These elements inter alia imply the founding of spirituality in the mercy and sovereignty of God, commitment to God as integral element in our spirituality and eschatological dimensions. Furthermore, the role of the church in equipping believers for a lifestyle characterized by spirituality is focused on. In conclusion certain concrete actions reflecting the fruit of spirituality according to Romans 12 are outlined.
