Test Yourselves, Are You in the Faith?
The Christians in Corinth were putting Paul to the test, trying to make him prove his apostolic authority. At the end of the letter, he turns the examination on them, they need to examine themselves. We all have a tendency to examine, test, and scrutinize others. And we need to be reminded to test ourselves to see if we are really in the faith. This Sunday we will begin a yearlong process of self-examination. (Scripture: 2 Corinthians 13:5-9)
