Good morning!

Text: 2 Corinthians 13;  2 Kings 7-8

How are you this day?  Are you right with God?  Are you in the faith?

Examine yourselves, to see whether you are in the faith. Test yourselves.  (2 Corinthians 13:5)

This is a very challenging verse.  Do I really believe?  How would I know?  What does a test of faith look like?  I can propose a few.  Do you have guilt and shame over past events?  If so, do you really believe in God’s forgiveness?  Do you fear the future… and fear death?  If so, do you really believe God’s promise of a beautiful future and eternal life?  Do you believe that Jesus died for your sins and rose again and that He is alive today?  Do you love God and love the people of God?  Do I see the fruit of God’s love and grace in my life?  Challenging.

in Him, Mike
