Resolve To Take Spiritual Inventory
Perhaps it’s time to take inventory of your spiritual house. Are you ready? Are you willing? “Search me, O God, and know my heart. Test me and know my thoughts. See if there are any wicked ways in me…” (Psalm 139:23-24)
Repent and Turn from Sinful Ways
2 Chronicles 7:14 says we, as His people, have “wicked ways” or “sinful paths” that we need to repent of and turn from. Are you ready for a 180-degree change in direction?
Revived By His Spirit
When we obey God’s Word, and repent of our sinful ways, the Holy Spirit often confirms the sincerity of our repentance with a great sense of His Presence. He will pour Himself out on those who seek Him according to John’s Gospel in chapters 13-15.
Ready To Equip Other Believers
When God has cleaned out our souls, and refreshed our spirits, we are ready to discover our place in the body, and our ministry gifts that He has given us to help build up each other into the fullness of Christ!
Accept His Correction
Jesus told the Church of Ephesus: “I have this against you, you have lost your first love…. Repent, and do the things you did at first.”
Allow His Redirection
“If My People, who are called by My Name, will humble themselves, pray, seek my face… and turn from their wicked ways, then I will…”
(2 Chronicles 7:14)
Activate His Calling
Every Christian is a vital member of the body of Christ. It’s only when each does their part that the whole body can be complete.
(I Corinthians 12:12-31)
