Assessing . . . You
Today's reading: 2 Corinthians 13:1-10
Do you ever wonder exactly where you're at spiritually speaking? Is it your practice to look back and consider where you're at and why in your relationship with God, the path you've taken, areas of growth or decline? Assessing ourselves is something that can slip through the cracks pretty easily. But examining our faith, what we value and the path we're heading down is a good practice. It's definitely a help to keep us going in the right direction but it can also serve to encourage us. I love it when, as I look back, I can see the areas in which I have grown spiritually. It gives me a little extra spring in my step and even more motivation to be diligent in pursuing God through His Word.
"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!" (vs.5)
Take a candid look back over the past several months and then the past few years. As you begin, ask God to show you areas of growth and areas where you need to grow. I'd love to hear about it if you're willing to share! Tami
