Bible Challenge – 2 Corinthians 13

“Examine yourselves to see if your faith is genuine. Test yourselves. Surely you know that Jesus Christ is among you; if not, you have failed the test of genuine faith.” v. 5 (NLT)

Have you ever taken a spiritual? I mean, we understand what it means to have a yearly exam at the doctor’s office. When playing sports in Middle School and High School a physical has to be done before you can play on the school team.  But just as a physical is important to make sure we are physically healthy, a spiritual is important to make sure we are spiritually healthy.  Think about it, what if we took the same discipline we take in making sure our bodies are healthy, and used the same tenacity to make sure we are spiritually healthy! Because of this I propose the importance of taking a spiritual!

Here are some questions that should be asked during your Spiritual:

1. Have you Surrendered to Christ allowing Him to be Savior and Lord?

2. Are you spending daily time with Him reading the Bible and allowing Him to speak to you?

3. Are you spending daily time with Him in Prayer and allowing yourself to speak to Him?

4. Are you Hiding His Word in your heart by memorizing Scripture?

5. Are your beliefs and lifestyle moving in the same direction?

6. Do your words and actions align or contradict each other?

7. Are you sharing the Gospel with friends, family, and strangers?

8. Are you investing your life in someone else teaching them the things of God and challenging them to develop spiritual habits?

9. Are you serving in a local church?

10. Are you spending your life on eternal things instead of earthly things?

These are just 10 questions of many that should be asked during your spiritual!  I want to encourage you to take some time to think thru these 10 questions? If you think of more, great! But lets use this as a starting point to examining ourselves to see if our faith is genuine!

Today, spend some time examining yourself by taking a spiritual! If there are areas you are doing well in, celebrate them and continue pressing in. But if there are areas that need some tweaking, make the adjustments needed to take your faith and journey with Christ to deeper commitments!
