Test yourselves to see if you are in the faith; examine yourselves! Or do you not recognize this about yourselves, that Jesus Christ is in you– unless indeed you fail the test? 2 Corinthians 13:5
Many people believe when they become “saved” or a “Christian” they are once and done. They say the “Sinners Prayer” and they got the golden ticket to Heaven. However this is not what being “Born Again” is all about, it’s a daily walk with God a daily reflection on our lives
Just as you go to the doctors to get a exam, we also need to examine ourselves spiritually. Where are you at with your relationship with Christ? Do you have any unrepented sin in your life? Are you producing any fruit for the Kingdom?
But I trust that you will realize that we ourselves do not fail the test. Now we pray to God that you do no wrong; not that we ourselves may appear approved, but that you may do what is right, even though we may appear unapproved. 2 Corinthians 13:6-7
Were all going to make mistakes and slip up sometimes. Anyone who says they don’t sin is a liar (1 John 1:8) However we repent and put our daily trust in Jesus Christ for salvation. I heard it said before “Our works don’t produce our salvation, however the salivation of Christ produces works in us”
But a man must examine himself, and in so doing he is to eat of the bread and drink of the cup. 1 Corinthians 11:28
As Paul was teaching about communion, we should examine ourselves daily. Communion (Lords Supper) it’s a great time to examine yourself and your relationship with Jesus. The Law of God is like a mirror for us to examine ourselves, test yourself in Jesus name Amen!
