Examine yourselves to see whether you are in the faith; test yourselves 2 Cor 13:5
The word says we need to examine ourselves to test and see if we are really in faith. Two questions that will help us examine ourselves properly.
Question 1 : Who are you, Lord?
When Lord meet Paul on the way to Damascus; “heard a voice say to me, ‘Saul! Saul! Why do you persecute me?”
Acts 22:7 How did Paul respond; ‘Who are you, Lord?’ I asked.” ‘I am Jesus of Nazareth, whom you are persecuting,’ he replied” Acts 22:8,9. We need to have the passion to know the Lord. Ask the Lord to reveal who He is to us. More we understand the Lord; we will be transformed into His likeness. Are we desperate to know the Lord? Remember when we sin, we are actually persecuting / hurting Jesus.
Question 2 : What shall I do, Lord?
The moment Paul came to know it was Jesus, the very next question He asked was; “What shall I do, Lord?’ I asked.”
Acts 22:10. Yes more we know the Lord, we need to ask; Oh Lord what do you want me to do? Oh Lord I am ready to do your will. Lord I want to fulfill your desires. Jesus replied to Paul get up and go to Damascus and there Lord will tell what to do. Daily life, let every step be ordained by the Lord.
