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.

Self Reflect! Is Your Heart Right?

Romans 2:12 All who sin apart from the law will also perish apart from the law, and all who sin under the law will be judged by the law. 13 For it is not those who hear the law who are righteous in God’s sight, but it is those who obey the law who will be declared righteous. 14 (Indeed, when Gentiles, who do not have the law, do by nature things required by the law, they are a law for themselves, even though they do not have the law. 15 They show that the requirements of the law are written on their hearts, their consciences also bearing witness, and their thoughts sometimes accusing them and at other times even defending them.) 16 This will take place on the day when God judges people’s secrets through Jesus Christ, as my gospel declares.

Is the requirements of the law written on your heart and mine? Does our conscience bear us witness? How about our thoughts? Do they accuse us or defend us? Mine goes to overdrive very often, however, communion with the Father of Spirit through His Word brings it into perspective for me.

These are questions we can ask ourselves truthfully. This is one of the reasons to examine ourselves to see if we are still in the faith for it is not those who hear the law who are righteous in God’s sight but doers of The Word. “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

We are only able to self reflect if we are matured enough to look at ourselves in the mirror without been afraid. Self reflection will help us identify areas that need to be worked upon. It helps us to consciously humble ourselves before our creator, to ask for help and and grace to overcome all and everything that is not serving the higher purpose of our being and calling.

Therefore, my brothers and sisters, make every effort to confirm your calling and election. For if you do these things, you will never stumble – 2 Peter 1:10.

Are you living the Word? Does your conscience bear you witness? For it is said that God’s spirit bears witness that we are His children – Romans 8:16. This same spirit will bear you witness that you are living right before God and man.

Shalom!

Dedication And Re-dedication! Are You In?

The invitation has been sent. Have you received yours, my friends? Here it is!

Matthew 11:28 Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. 29 Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. 30 For My yoke is easy and My burden is light.”

Don’t tell me you don’t have any burdens for that would be a lie! Yes, and that my friend is a burden! Romans 6:23 For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord. There is need to dedicate your life to Jesus Christ this moment.

truth gets enemies

Are you in the faith? There is a need for the rededication of our lives to the Lord. 2 Corinthians 13:5 Examine yourselves as to whether you are in the faith. Test yourselves. Do you not know yourselves, that Jesus Christ is in you?—unless indeed you are disqualified. But I trust that you will know that we are not disqualified.   Now I pray to God that you do no evil, not that we should appear approved, but that you should do what is honorable, though we may seem disqualified. For we can do nothing against the truth, but for the truth. 

Matthew 28:16 Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20 teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.” Amen.

Shalom! Shalom! Shalom!

Dullness In Hearing! Seeing Heart!

cslewisbbbAs a child of God, be it a prophet, teacher, evangelist, encourager, etc, our familiarity with The Word, our “knowing” of the things of God, the mind of God, our age and the likes often and may cause us to have “dullness” of hearing, “weakness” in our eyes like Eli had in 1 Samuel 3. Yet God in His infinite mercy and love makes provision for us. He sent Samuel to Eli’s household and has sent His Holy Spirit to us in this end time as Christ promised in John 14:15 “If you love me, keep my commands. 1And I will ask the Father, and he will give you another advocate to help you and be with you forever— 17 the Spirit of truth.  

 

To use today’s word, God gave us a conscience, to nudge, prick and commune with us amongst all others. Are we listening, or is our conscience seared as in 1 Timothy 4: 1-2?  Friends, examine yourself, examine your ways!!!! Romans 2: 13 For it is not those who hear the law who are righteous in God’s sight, but it is those who obey the law who will be declared righteous. 14 (Indeed, when Gentiles, who do not have the law, do by nature things required by the law, they are a law for themselves, even though they do not have the law.15 They show that the requirements of the law are written on their hearts, their consciences also bearing witness, and their thoughts sometimes accusing them and at other times even defending them.)16 This will take place on the day when God judges people’s secrets through Jesus Christ, as my gospel declares. 

Martin Luther King

Father, we ask in Jesus mighty name that you will recreate in us a right spirit, may your Holy Spirit convict us of our sins bringing about repentance, may our hearts that have been seared receive life, may your truth take root in our minds, may we be quickened by your Holy Spirit to live right before you, holding unto faith and a good conscience in Christ Jesus mighty name we pray. We magnify your name for rekindling your fire within us. Thank you Father for speedy answers in Jesus name. Amen

Shalom! Shalom! Shalom!
