Topic: SELF EXAMINATION
BIBLE READING:2Cor.13.5 – Examine yourselves, to see whether you are in the faith. Test yourselves. Or do you not realize this about yourselves, that Jesus Christ is in you?–unless indeed you fail to meet the test!
If you find it difficult to hear the voice of God, you may need to look inward and carry out a seIf-examination.
A Self examination is an evaluation of our walk with the Lord.
This means allowing His word to purge you.
Another version puts it this way
2 Corinthians 13:5 Now your souls will be strengthened and healed if you HOLD STEADFAST to your faith. Haven’t you already experienced Jesus Christ himself living in you? *If not, you are *deficient* .
To be deficient means a lack, the only way to not be deficient in fellowship with God is constantly holding on to His word in your hearts and also your mouth.
HYMN: WHEN WE WALK WITH THE LORD
- When we walk with the Lord
In the light of His Word,
What a glory He sheds on our way,
While we do His good will,
He abides with us still,
And with all who will trust and obey.
Trust and obey,
For there’s no other way
To be happy in Jesus,
But to trust and obey.
- Not a shadow can rise,
Not a cloud in the skies,
But His smile quickly drives it away,
Not a doubt or a fear,
Not a sigh or a tear,
Can abide while we trust and obey.
- Not a burden we bear,
Not a sorrow we share,
But our toil He doth richly repay,
Not a grief nor a loss,
Not a frown nor a cross,
But is blest if we trust and obey.
- But we never can prove
The delights of His love,
Until all on the altar we lay,
For the favour He shows,
And the joy He bestows,
Are for them who will trust and obey.
- Then in fellowship sweet
We will sit at His feet,
Or we’ll walk by His side in the way,
What He says we will do,
Where He sends, we will go,
Never fear, only trust and obey.
