Editor’s Note: This is a guest story by contributor Agnes Amos-Coleman. I don’t know about you, but I’ve definitely been in a position to do some spiritual self-evaluation lately!
My friends, whether you are employed, unemployed, own your own business or retired – you have probably been involved in some sort of performance evaluation, or self-evaluation of how you think you have performed during a given period.
Our Christian walk is no exception. As the year winds down, there is no better time than now, to conduct a spiritual self- evaluation of our walk with the Lord. If we are not doing so well, reset and start again because we serve a God that is gracious and merciful.
After spiritual evaluation comes a renewed focus to live for Christ. How, you may ask? The answer lies in the following:
- Remembering the God that is head over heels in love with us– (John 3:16) reminds us of this great love that led Him to give His Only Son Jesus to die for us so we do not perish but have eternal life. This thought should give us great focus to live for Him and for the joy of eternity that awaits us.
- Remembering who the source of our existence is – (Acts 17:28) always gives me great comfort knowing that we live, move and have our being in Him. It will help us to live and do right for Jesus, knowing that we are His children and He is there with us and for us.
- Remembering to share the love of Jesus with others – (2 Peter 3:9) reminds us that it is not His wish that anyone should perish, but for everyone to come to repentance. We owe it to our circle of influence to share this love with them. We do so by our actions, attitudes, and behavior. “In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven”. Matthew 5:16.
Christ follower, choose to live for Jesus. If you are currently not a Christ follower, don’t wait another day, Jesus is calling – come
All glory to God!
