2 Corinthians 13:5

"Examine yourselves to see whether you are in the faith; test yourselves..." NIV

"Examine yourselves, whether ye be in the faith; prove your own selves..." KJV

There are so many ways our faith becomes tainted. It is critical that we thoroughly examine our faith to see if we have taken in anything contrary to the Word of God. To test our faith, our spiritual purity we must use it. Think of it like we were seeking to find out if a paint sprayer was good or not. We could look at it and all its' parts. We could read the materials that come with it. We could even do research on the materials from which it is made. But none of this would tell us if this paint sprayer was a good one or not. The only way to know is to use it, try it out. That's how we can examine ourselves. We take note of the way we respond and cope with the everyday trials and challenges of life to see if we reflect Jesus Christ or our own fleshly nature.

Heavenly Father, give us courage to examine ourselves during challenging times so that we can test our faith and know that we are walking totally in Your ways and that we will be found faithful. We pray in Jesus' name, Amen.
