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?
Everyone who claims to be believers holds to the thought that they are following the way of the master. That the faith they are walking out is truly the way of righteousness. It’s hard for us to imagine it any other way. However, that doesn’t make us right. Just because we believe we are right and can point out that someone else is wrong on this or that, doesn’t mean that which we hold to is flawless.
Our verse tells us to examine ourselves to see if we are in the faith. This is something we should always be mindful of and put into practice more than once or twice. Are you willing to challenge your faith? Are you willing to accept you’re wrong if the facts show it to be so?
I’ve once heard it said “If your Faith isn’t worth testing, it isn’t worth having.” Brilliant. So, do you test your faith?
Let this be a focus in your time of meditation throughout the day. Until next time, shalom!
