Inspiration (23/04/19)

Tested!

The WEATHER Test-Are you a sailboat Christian, making progress in the Lord only if the winds are favorable and things go your way? Or are you a tugboat Christian, plowing right ahead according to God's Word even though the gales are against you? (Revelations 2:10).

The WORRY Test-If you trust, you do not worry; if you worry, you do not trust as you should. Haven't you found that "He keeps him in perfect peace whose mind is stayed on Him" because he trusts in God? (Matthew 6:28; Luke 12:27).

The WORLDLINESS Test-Do you think as the world thinks, go where the world goes, act as the world acts? Does your life give evidence of having your affections set on things above, not on things of the world? (Romans 12:1).

The WALLET Test-What proportion of your income last year was turned over for the work of the Lord? Was it at least as much as the tithe which the Jews paid before the grace of God was revealed in Christ? (Leviticus 27:30; Nehemiah 12:44).

The WORK Test-How much of your energy is being given to the work of the Lord, and is it a reasonable portion of what you are expending in the day-to-day task of making a living? (John 9:4).

The SOUL-WINNING Test-Are you by life and lip presenting Christ so that He is attractive to those who do not know Him as their Savior and Lord? (Matthew 12:30; Romans 15:5-6).
