2 Corinthians 13:3-6 3 I will give you all the proof you want that Christ speaks through me. Christ is not weak in his dealings with you; he is a mighty power among you. 4 Although he died on the cross in weakness, he now lives by the mighty power of God. We, too, are weak, but we live in him and have God’s power-the power we use in dealing with you. 5 Examine yourselves to see if your faith is really genuine. Test yourselves. If you cannot tell that Jesus Christ is among you, it means you have failed the test. 6 I hope you recognize that we have passed the test and are approved by God. Holy Bible, New Living Translation, (Wheaton, IL: Tyndale House Publishers, Inc.) 1996.

Do you regularly consider your walk in Christ?  Are there areas that you need to improve to show those around you that Christ does live in you? Examination of your Christian life should be done regularly.   Lamentations 3:40 states, “Instead, let us test and examine our ways. Let us turn again in repentance to the Lord.”  Regular examination of how you are doing representing Christ is one way to stay focused on His will.  An unexamined life can kill spiritual passion in your walk with Him.  Go before Him and simply ask, “Lord are there areas in my life that do not represent You?”  Take the time on a regular basis to ask Him this question.  He will show you areas that you need to grow.  There is no way anyone of us will ever get it completely right.  All of us will need to ask this question and turn from our will to His.  No one living for Christ in this world will never have to ask this question.  We all fall short of living completely in His will.  Paul tells us that to pass the test others should be able to see that Christ is with you.  That means living His way, doing His will and seeking His direction. Always!  Since we will never accomplish this feat in this life, it will always be something we work on.  You will never reach a point where you know all there is to know about Him and live in His will always.  So move forward to make this your number one priority, to be more like Him. This is not a point of discouragement, but encouragement because we know that, “He will complete the good work He has started in you” Then go to His Word and find out what that means.

Have a God Day!
