Examine Yourself

Key Verse

“Charity suffereth long, and is kind; charity envieth not; charity vaunteth not itself, is not puffed up, Doth not behave itself unseemly, seeketh not her own, is not easily provoked, thinketh no evil” (1 Corinthians 13:4-5).

Text — 1 Corinthians 13:4-10


W. Bill says, “…the wise have always known that no one can make much of his life until self-searching has become a regular habit, until he is able to admit and accept what he finds, and until he patiently and persistently tries to correct what is wrong.” It is desirable for believers to constantly examine themselves to know if they align with God’s mind and will, and to ensure they are walking worthy of their calling. Self-examination is a necessary tool for believers to correct themselves regularly so as to continue honouring the Lord, because sin among church members is wont to lead to death.

Examine yourself always to know whether you are still in the faith (2 Corinthians 13:5; Galatians 6:3, 4). Self-examination enables us to know where we stand with God. Read through today’s memory verse again; do you have those pristine qualities of love? If you do not, then God is ready to circumcise your heart and transform your life. Like the Psalmist, pray: “Search me, O God, and know my heart: try me and know my thoughts” (Psalm139:23).


Know where you stand with God


Align with God’s mind and will.

Prayer for today

Precious Lord, help me to renew my dedication to you.
