STATION BREAK

SUNDAY BREAK FROM OUR SERIES

WE INTERRUPT OUR REGULARLY SCHEDULED BROADCAST FOR A PAUSE.

When the Corinthians criticize Paul and his authority, he turns the tables on them. He tells the church they should examine their hearts to see if they are really born again and members of the body of Christ. Paul says, “Examine yourselves to see whether you are in the faith; test yourselves. Do you not realize that Christ Jesus is in you—unless, of course, you fail the test?” (2Co 13:5).

Here are a few examples of questions you can apply to “examine yourself.” Use them to test yourself so you can be certain you’re truly living as a child of God:

  ➤ Are you growing in holiness? (see Jas 2:14–26)

 ➤ Does the Holy Spirit live in your heart, or are you living to gratify the desires of the flesh? (Ro 8:5–9)

 ➤ Is there evidence in your life that you love other believers? (1Jn 3:14)

 ➤ Do you continue to be trapped in unrepentant sin, including idolatry or sexual immorality? (1Co 6:9; 1Jn 3:9)

 ➤ Are you committed to doing what God says is right? (1Jn 2:29)

 ➤ Do you keep God’s commandments? (1Jn 2:3–6)

Remember that living righteously does not mean living a perfect, sin-free life. “Being righteous doesn’t mean you never sin; it means you confess your sin to the Lord, repent of it, and despise it”.
