Personal Spiritual Inventory
If we haven’t taken stock of our lives, then it’s time.
Inventory is the lifeblood of every retail business as to whether it’s going to make a profit or not. To maximize profits they must make sure they have the right amount of products without over or under stocking. To accomplish this they will regularly take inventory.
In the same way the Lord is asking every one of us to take inventory of our lives, and see if our faith is in line with Him.
“Examine yourselves as to whether you are in the faith. Test yourselves. Do you not know yourselves, that Jesus Christ is in you?–unless indeed you are disqualified.” (2 Corinthians 13:5)
Where are we in our relationship with Jesus Christ? This question needs to be asked and answered by everyone.
If we’re not in the faith, if we don’t believe in Jesus Christ, if we haven’t asked Jesus Christ into our hearts, and we don’t have that born again relationship Jesus says is necessary (John 3:3), then when we enter the next life, we will “indeed be disqualified.”
This isn’t a game; instead it’s serious business. This isn’t something we can put on the back burner thinking we can visit it at a more opportune time. Now is the time for salvation, and that’s because no one is promised tomorrow. Before tomorrow we die and may shed this earthly body for an eternal one.
If we haven’t made that decision for Jesus Christ, asking Him to be our Savior and Lord, then we’ll spend an eternity in hell, rather than heaven.
Let’s therefore take the time necessary to find out where we stand before God. Are we in the faith? If not we need to ask Jesus Christ to come into our lives, and forgive our sins.
“If you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved.” (Romans 10:9)
