The test that Kills

Church Family,

In my worship time this morning I read this:

2 Corinthians 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!

This Sunday we are going to take the Lord's Supper. Before doing so you are going to be asked to obey God's command to examine yourself. The problem we face is, what do we examine our lives by? Is it whether we are happy or sad? Do we examine our lives by our bank accounts, marriage, body image, how often we sin or didnt this week, etc? 

No, we are to take the toughest test of all time, are we in the Faith? Is Christ in You?

Is everything that you are doing being done by Faith in Christ? Do you realize the Power of Christ in you to restore and build you up?

2 Corinthians 13:9 "Your restoration is what we pray for."

2 Corinthians 13:10 "....the authority that the Lord has given me for building up and not for tearing down."

The test is meant to kill you, to restore you, to give you life in Jesus only, to remove the things that aren't of Faith and to build upon your Faith in Jesus.

Love, Serve, Go!
