2 Corinthians 13:5 Scripture Meditation by Stephen Taylor

2 Corinthians 13:5

Examine yourselves to see whether you are in the faith; test yourselves. Do you not realize that Christ Jesus is in you- unless, of course, you fail the test?

Let’s put Christ back in “Christian.” The other day on the radio, I heard someone say, “What happens when you take Christ out of the word ‘Christian’? Well, you’re just left with Ian! And Ian might be a nice guy, but he can’t save you!” It was meant to be funny but also profound.


If we keep taking Jesus out of our daily lives, what are we going to be left with? Just the same train wreck I was before I came to know the Lord! That is why this verse tells us to test and examine ourselves, and I’m pretty sure it means to do it minute by minute if necessary! Some days will be easier than other days, and some days I will fail at it! But it’s so important in my walk to be constantly checking my heart behind my actions.


We need to remember that Jesus Christ is alive and well in all of us who have received Him and that we are new creatures and should act accordingly! The more Jesus I put into every aspect of my life, the less room there is for my evil Stephen desires!!! That’s one test I pray you and I never fail!!!


I love you all, God bless, and let’s give God all the glory today!!!
