Light Reflection-2 Corinthians 13:5 Self-Examination

June 29th, 2023

JOHN SHIRK – Today’s Light Reflection is from Second Corinthians 13:5.

“Examine yourselves to see whether you are in the faith; test yourselves. Do you not realize that Christ Jesus is in you-unless, of course, you fail the test?”

We do check-ups and inspections in various areas. Many of us go to the doctor for a physical evaluation. We take our cars to the mechanic for an annual inspection. There is also value in examining our spiritual condition. How is my relationship with God? Do I love Him above all else? Am I demonstrating my love for Him with an obedient heart? Am I loving my neighbor as myself? Is there any sin in my life hindering my walk with God?

These are some honest questions to evaluate our spiritual well-being. What matters most is how God sees us. David’s prayer in Psalm 139 is quite relevant to this examination. “Search me, God, and know my heart; test me and know my anxious thoughts. See if there is any offensive way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting.”

This Light Reflection inspires us to examine our spiritual condition with honesty and prayer in the Year to Shine.
