The Need For Self-evaluation

The Need For

 

Self-evaluation

 

Examine yourselves, whether ye be in the faith; prove your own selves.  Know ye not your own selves, how that Jesus Christ is in you…? (2 Corinthians 13:5).

 

Every one is the expression of what he or she believes. Your daily life is the loudest voice that gives expression to your belief. As a Christian, therefore, it’s easy for you to review what you truly believe, and determine whether or not you’re living the authentic Christian life by examining your own life. “What kind of life am I living?” “What have I been like?” “How is the love of God expressed through me?” “How has the Word affected my communication, to manifest the Kingdom of God in humility and in righteousness?”

 

 

Have you been putting the Word to work, so the Word can keep producing results in you? Have you surrendered your will and emotions to the Lordship of the Word? Are you a man or woman of your words? Ponder on these thoughts from time to time as you evaluate your life with the sole purpose of improving the excellence of your character.

 

 

There’re people who don’t realize the importance of being a man or woman of their words; their words don’t mean anything to them. That’s unfortunate, because the greatest gift given to man, in his natural life, is the gift of words; the ability to express himself in words. Your inner personality, the excellence and integrity of your character, are revealed through your words; hence, your words should be your bond.

 

 

The Lord Jesus said, ‘by your words you shall be justified and by your words you shall be condemned’ (Matthew 12:37). One of the ways the world around you can see Jesus in you is through your character, which is often expressed in your words; therefore, maintain godly communication every time and everywhere.

 

Prayer

 

I thank you, Father, for giving me your Word, which gives me the right mind-set and excellent character. My life is the reflection of your grace, love, truth, and righteousness, as I live to your glory, in the Lordship of your Word, in Jesus’ Name
