Is our faith on cruise control?

Image result for test yourself

I shouldn’t let my faith go on cruise control. The Apostle Paul urges disciples of Jesus to examine themselves. I need to be critical of how I am doing in my walk with Jesus. I need others to help me.

Is it possible to start strong and end weak?

Is it just about the beginning?

What if I run out of energy and can’t finish the race?

Do I think that going to church once a week and occasionally reading the bible is enough?

Test yourselves to see if you are in the faith; examine yourselves! Or do you not recognize this about yourselves, that Jesus the Messiah is in you — unless indeed you fail the test?

2 Corinthians 13:5
  • My job is to test myself. Is Jesus in me?
  • I can fail. I can not be ready. No one else can do this for me. It is my job.
  • It isn’t acceptable to just keep moving on and winging it when it comes to my faith.

David was big on considering what was in his heart. He had a heart after God but didn’t take it for granted.

Jesus had harsh words for hypocrites. “You hypocrite, first take the log out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to take the speck out of your brother’s eye.”

  • Am I just acting like God is real in my life?
  • Do I really believe Jesus?
  • Or am I a hypocrite.

Paul suggests to:

Pay close attention to yourself and to your teaching; persevere in these things, for as you do this you will ensure salvation both for yourself and for those who hear you.

1 Timothy 4:16

Monthly Giving

There is power in prayer. We see it every day. Let us join with you in tapping into the Power of God. Click here to make a request.

Monthly giving is an important way to support our mission. The most effective way to learn a foreign language is through immersion. In complete immersion, students spend all their time hearing and speaking a new language in a sequential and cumulative format. The goal is to become not only a proficient speaker, but to acquire an appreciation and understanding of a new culture. This approach describes the training process at the Christian Training Center.
