Being Tested

Calvin Kochi


5Test yourselves to see if you are in the faith; examine yourselves! Or do you not recognize this about yourselves, that Jesus Christ is in you—unless indeed you fail the test? 2 Corinthians 13:5


Paul encourages us to test ourselves to gauge where we are in our walk with the Lord! Examining our faith is something that is so valuable of a tool. Is Jesus living and alive in you Is He Lord and Savior?


One thing I hated was taking tests whether it was for school, my job, or having to go to the doctors. Taking the test wasn’t the bigger part of the problem it was what was going to happen if I failed the test. For me the part of failing was hard because I didn’t want to be a disappointment to my parents and family. Today I look at taking tests in a whole different light. It helps to gauge where I am and where I want to be. What I’ve also learned that God Loves me in spite of my failings, all He’s looking for is for me to allow the Holy Spirit to guide and lead me to the truth of His Word. I know that the daily devotions has been my way of allow Him to Test me daily.


Thank you Lord for your Grace. It is because of your Grace that allows takes the fear out of having to be tested in my faith.
