Pass or Fail?
Read 2 Corinthians 10:1 through 13:14
What makes a Christian a Christian? It’s not attending church, not the occasional prayer or Bible reading, not being baptized or teaching Sunday School. So what is the test that determines the legitimacy of someone’s faith?
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 need to examine our hearts to be certain that Jesus is in us and living through us today. Are we talking out of both sides of our mouths? Does the same mouth that blesses also curse? Do we show condemnation instead of consolation? Do we love when we are on stage but hate in private? Are we nice to some people but feel it is okay to be rude to others?
It’s time to put our hearts to the test. With prayer and meditation, we can take the time to fully examine ourselves and see if we are lacking. Do we pass or fail?
Prayer Suggestion: Lord, show me my true heart, and if it is not wholly serving You, I submit myself wholly to You today.

God's Word For Today is available from Gospel Publishing House.
Prayer is our link with God, an awesome avenue through which we can express praise and adoration to Him for His goodness, love, and mercy; and an avenue through which we can voice our petitions and concerns. God's Word assures us that we can "come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need" (Hebrews 4:16).
Prayer also moves the hand of God on behalf of needs and circumstances in our church, our families, our community, nation, and world. Take time to pray and intercede for these areas as God leads you. Become part of a prayer group and intercede with others in times of corporate prayer. As you seek God's help, expect reports of great victory to follow as God answers prayer.
