"TRENDING: GETTING EXAMINED"

  2 Corinthians 13:5-6 (ESV)

Let’s Examine Our Spiritual Condition


“The worst deceit is self-deceit"


  • 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!" 
  • Romans 10:9 ~ "because, if you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved."
  • 2 Corinthians 13:6 ~ "I hope you will find out that we have not failed the test."     

 

Pass / Fail

1. What Do You Believe About Jesus?     

  • 1 Corinthians 15:3-4 ~ "For I delivered to you as of first importance what I also received: that Christ died for our sins in accordance with the Scriptures, that he was buried, that he was raised on the third day in accordance with the Scriptures,"  
  • Romans 10:9 ~ "because, if you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved."

2. What Have You Done With Jesus?      

  • John 1:12 ~ "But to all who did receive him, who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God," 

3. When Did It Happen?         

  • John 3:3 ~ "Jesus answered him, 'Truly, truly, I say to you, unless one is born again he cannot see the kingdom of God.'”

4. Has Jesus Changed Your Life?    

  • 1 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!"   
  • Romans 8:9 (NLT) ~ "But you are not controlled by your sinful nature. You are controlled by the Spirit if you have the Spirit of God living in you."      


“Jesus in you eternally changes you!” 

   

  • 2 Corinthians 5:17 (NLT) ~ "This means that anyone who belongs to Christ has become a new person. The old life is gone; a new life has begun!"

a) Do you have a love for God and the things of God?

b) Does your sin bother you?    

  • 1 Corinthians 13:6 ~"I hope you will find out that we have not failed the test."  

c) Do you really love others?     

 

“A faith that does not change your life, will not save your soul!”
