Have you been exposed by the law of God and left spiritually naked or cloaked in His righteousness?

For I through the law am dead to the law, that I might live unto God. (Galatians 2:19 KJV)

The law of God acts like a mirror with the sole purpose of exposing sin.  The law reveals those things within us that are in enmity to the perfect law of God.  There is not one man who can perfectly keep God’s law ...

Do you glory in the supernatural strength and power of God working in your life or revel in your own accomplishments?

Self-righteousness is elevating self rather than the righteousness of God.

And he spake this parable unto certain which trusted in themselves that they were righteous, and despised others: Two men went up into the temple to pray; the one a Pharisee, and the other a publican. The Pharisee stood and prayed thus with himself, God, I thank thee, that I am not as other men are, extortioners, unjust, adulterers, or even as this publican. I fast twice in the ...

What eternal residence will you inherit in the eternal realm: Heaven or Hell?

Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind, Nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God. (1 Corinthians 6:9-10 KJV)

Do you ruminate upon the spiritual needs of others in “conversation” with God?

Ye ask, and receive not, because ye ask amiss, that ye may consume it upon your lusts. (James 4:3 KJV)

Is your prayer time an expanded accordion list of all the things you desire or see a need for in your life?  Or is your prayer time full of praising, talking and listening for God’s direction in your life?  God is not a “spiritual genie” you can ...

Serving Christ has a cost but is a blessing now and for all eternity.

For which of you, intending to build a tower, sitteth not down first, and counteth the cost, whether he have sufficient to finish it? Lest haply, after he hath laid the foundation, and is not able to finish it, all that behold it begin to mock him, Saying, This man began to build, and was not able to finish. (Luke 14:28-30 KJV)

Have you counted the ...

Are you dividing for god or multiplying for God in this world?

For as the body is one, and hath many members, and all the members of that one body, being many, are one body: so also is Christ. For by one Spirit are we all baptized into one body, whether we be Jews or Gentiles, whether we be bond or free; and have been all made to drink into one Spirit. (1 Corinthians 12:12-13 KJV)

God has given His ...

The world loves to hate the message of God’s Word

And ye shall be hated of all men for my name’s sake: but he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved. (Mark 13:13 KJV)

Does the world love you and throng around you to hear your ministry?  Or do many despise you and your message?  Jesus told us “And ye shall be hated of all men for my name’s sake…”

A good indicator of the spirit of ...

Will you be in the heavenly choir?

Sing unto the LORD, O ye saints of his, and give thanks at the remembrance of his holiness. (Psalms 30:4 KJV)

How often do you focus upon, as this verse says, remembering the holiness of God?  Singing praises unto Him?  Singing scripture is worshipping through melodies and hymns unto God.  The Old Testament book of Psalms is an ancient “God inspired” book of musical verses sung unto Him praising and worshiping Him.

In the ...

Paul was unassuming and meek.

For I am the least of the apostles, that am not meet to be called an apostle, because I persecuted the church of God. But by the grace of God I am what I am: and his grace which was bestowed upon me was not in vain; but I laboured more abundantly than they all: yet not I, but the grace of God which was with me. (1 Corinthians 15:9-10 KJV)

Paul was truly a ...
