Summertime is almost here, and I am looking forward to the road trips my family and I usually take for vacation. Every time we go out of town, my husband examines the car to ensure it is in a suitable condition that will sustain a long road trip and provide safety for his precious cargo (his kids and I).
Likewise, when God asks us to pursue assignments, we often examine ourselves to ensure we are suited and ready for the journey. If this examination is not focused on Christ in us, then the examination is misguided.
2 Corinthians 13:5 AMPC Examine and test and evaluate your selves to see whether you are holding to your faith and showing the proper fruits of it. Test and prove yourselves [not Christ]. Do you not yourselves realize and know [thoroughly by an ever-increasing experience] that Jesus Christ is in you—unless you are [counterfeits] disapproved on trial and rejected?
CHRIST LIVES IN YOU. Because Christ lives in you, there is an assurance that you will also share His glory (Colossians 1:27). Glory is tangible evidence of God’s power working in you. Glory is the successful pursuit of what God has called for you to do. When Christ finished the work of redeeming mankind, God’s glory was seen in His life.
When one only self-examines without Christ being at the center of that examination, they often fall short of the standard set by either themselves or society. Christ, in you, is the key to realizing that nothing is impossible. He is your hope for healing, prosperity, peace, significance, restoration, and boldness.
Prayer for the Journey
Father, no longer will I self-examine without you being at the center of that examination. Help me to realize that you are the game-changer in my life. Because of you, I am suited and worthy of the task at hand. My hope for success is based on you living in me.
In Jesus name, Amen!
