In 2 Corinthians 13:5 Paul tells us to “test ourselves to see if we are in the faith, to examine ourselves”. In fact, he says this with an exclamation point!
How sad it has been for me to see relatives falling away from the faith…those who claim to be Christian, yet do not even know what it means to live as one. Friends, just go to the Bible—all the answers we need for godly living are in there. Don’t chase after the things of this world, or ideas that seem new and interesting. Don’t follow the leader just because he or she is enthusiastic about what he/she teaches—compare it with the Bible! We are warned about this by God’s Word—in the final days these things will come… We don’t know when those days are to be…but the point is that we are to be prepared for it, and to do so, we should TEST OURSELVES to see if we are in the faith! Christ is the ONLY way, the ONLY truth, and the ONLY life. No one will go to Heaven without Him. Sorry to say, but it’s true. I hope you know that. Test yourself friend…we love you.
