Examine yourselves as to whether you are in the faith. Test yourselves. Do you not know yourselves, that Jesus Christ is in you? –unless indeed you are disqualified (2 Corinthians 13:5).
I examine myself in all kinds of ways. Did I brush my teeth this morning? I can run my tongue over my teeth and quickly conclude the answer. We are constantly in the process of examining ourselves. Did I remember to . . . ? Will I be on time for that meeting . . . ? You can examine your own ways. Why shouldn’t we keep a running tab on whether or not we are in faith? Are we trusting God?
My son says, “I’ve stopped micro-managing God. He has a much better plan for my life than I do. Whatever He brings my way, I throw myself into it 100%. Life is much more fun this way.”
The only way to get disqualified from the faith race (which you only run against yourself) is to deny Christ; tell Jesus to get out of your life and stay out. That is the only unforgiveable sin. I trust that not one of us has disqualified ourselves. And if you have, throw yourself on His Mercy!
