A Spiritual Diagnostic

J.A. Medders
July 17, 2023

As the Apostle Paul urges the Corinthians (2 Cor. 13:5), we too should regularly examine the "health" of our faith. J. A. Medders suggests the following questions to help all Christians in that process.

"1. Do you think Jesus is relevant for your daily life?

2. Do you live as though Jesus is relevant for your daily life?

3. Do you want to worship God with Jesus’s people?

4. Do you see signs of grace/fruit in your life?

5. Do you know what will happen in eternity?

These questions are useful for examining ourselves in the faith and helping others to do likewise. Let’s keep a close watch on our spiritual states so we can be better disciple-makers for Jesus Christ."
