March 23rd -- Testing, Testing

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? 
And I trust that you will discover that we have not failed the test. 2 Cor 13:5-6

After reconsidering the bible study last Friday, I found this and thought I'd share.

Taken from someone else's blog....

Here is what this means for me. First and foremost, when God’s testing and proving comes (cf. I Peter 1:6-7), I won’t whine and cry like a little baby wondering why God has forgotten me, but rather I’ll be thankful that God is helping me remove the dross and slag from my life. I won’t be upset about it. I’ll welcome it, even ask for it as David did in Psalm 139:23-24.
Second, it means I won’t wait for someone else to notice my hypocrisies, insincerities, hold-ups, I’ll start examining myself to see where I fall short so I can grow.
Of course, I have to remind myself why I do this.
Is it to impress God? No. Is it to earn heaven? No. Rather, it is because God’s way works. I know if I walk my own way, it will not glorify God; it will not get me closer to God. So, I test myself because I want to glorify God more than anything else.
