Examine yourselves as to whether you are in the faith. Test yourselves. Do you not know yourselves, that Jesus Christ is in you?—unless indeed you are disqualified.
As the signs of the last days rage around us, our sovereign God is still in control. As He delays His coming, we need to heed the wake-up call and warn others that the time to choose Jesus is now.
Today’s verse encourages every person to examine himself. Are you truly in the faith? Is Christ really at work in your heart? Are His power and wisdom growing in you every day? Are you looking more and more like your Father?
The Bible warns us of a broad way that leads to destruction; multitudes will take that easy path to eternal loss. The gate is small, and the path is narrow that leads to true, eternal life, and few will find it (Matthew 7:13-14). To find that path and to stay on that path takes discipline and focus.
Test yourself! Where are you in life? Are you walking the narrow, blood-stained path that leads to the Cross? Or are you strolling hand in hand with the world?
Be certain that you are ready when that final trumpet blast rents the air. Tell others about a Savior Who loves us so much that He does not want to live without us.
May the Lord bless you and keep you. May the Lord make His face to shine upon you and be gracious unto you and give you His peace. If you are numbered among the redeemed, rejoice that your name has been written in the Lamb’s Book of Life and that Jesus will one day present you faultless before God the Father!
