Self Assessment Drives Growth

Every organization in the secular world conduct assessment on all employees, it encourages individual self assessment, and promote continuous learning to drive self and process improvement for the sustainability of the organization.

I want to let you know that the Scriptures also encourages believers to assess themselves to drive repentance, growth and maturity as a witness to our inward transformation, and outward representation of our divinity.


“Brothers and Sisters, make every effort to confirm your calling and election. For if you do these things, you will never stumble, and you will receive rich welcome into the eternal kingdom” 2 Peter 1:10-11

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? 2 Corinthians 13:5

This piece is culled from The Magic of Thinking Big

Friends, when was the last time you examined yourself? When was the last time you conducted an evaluation of yourself to identify faith gap, unbelief, doubt, and outright sin in your life? It is what we know that is lacking in us that we will talk to our Father in heaven about, and get help with.

I know many of us see ourselves as perfect and has no room for improvement. We are just great the way we are eh? Yes! You are wrong if you think and act like this. The very wise know that what they do not know is so much more than what they already know, hence they listen more, ask questions, research, and observe more keenly, they learn, and take action to apply every knowledge gained.

You and I need to do a check up of ourselves friends, not to be critical of ourselves, but to identify where we need to grow, and repentance becomes easy when we realize our mistakes and shortcomings. Self assessment truly drives growth if you think about it.

Do the necessary checkup! Then talk to our helper about it!
Shalom!

Processing…
Success! You're on the list.

What Fruit?

holy spirit fruitJohn 1:46 Nazareth! Can anything good come from there? Nathanael asked.

My friends, and I, Can anything good come from us? Can anything good come from you this year 2016? What fruits do you aim to bear this year? Fruits unto good and peace or evil and conflict?

“Come and see, said Philip”

Friends, if you and I are scrutinized, what will the eye of the spirit find? What will man see? Courage? Obedience? Beauty? Peace? Love, righteousness, success, progress, growth and all the fruits of the spirit?

Psalms 19:12 But who can discern their own errors? Forgive my hidden faults.13 Keep your servant also from willful sins; may they not rule over me. Then I will be blameless, innocent of great transgression. 14 May these words of my mouth and this meditation of my heart be pleasing in your sight, Lord, my Rock and my Redeemer.

Will you take time out to examine yourself every now and then this year to find out if you are bearing fruit unto his glory. Are you making an impact for His glory in your spheres of influence? Are you a change agent in your daily living? Are your deeds of the light or darkness? Have you fallen into error? Or are you dependent on the Words of Truth as contained in the scriptures? Are you about your masters business wholeheartedly or not?

Are you living in the light?

Jesus Christ wants the heaven to be open so we can see greater things than ever before. Is your heart stayed on Christ? His kingdom and all that is pleasing to him? If yes, then be rest assured you shall see heavens open and angels of God ascending and descending.

John 3: 19 This is the verdict: Light has come into the world, but people loved darkness instead of light because their deeds were evil.20 Everyone who does evil hates the light, and will not come into the light for fear that their deeds will be exposed. 21 But whoever lives by the truth comes into the light, so that it may be seen plainly that what they have done has been done in the sight of God.
