Heart Searching--Part 3

In previous hubs entitled Heart Searching and Heart Searching--Part 2, I listed several questions to allow us to examine our hearts before God concerning personal revival. The list was given to me by an evangelist that had passed through our area. I found it very helpful in my own life, and some of you have requested the entire list of 125 questions. At this point I will add four more sections for your consideration.

Please take your time and allow the Holy Spirit to work. Rushing through them won't accomplish much. An answer of "yes" to any question represents an area of your life that needs to be corrected. I guarantee that if you are honest before God and get things thoroughly right with Him, you'll be blessed. Happy New Year to all of you!

I. Employer/Employee Relationships (Ephesians 4:28)
  
A. Do you underpay?
   B. Do you do very little in your work?
   C. Have you been careless in the payment of your debts?
   D. Have you sought to evade payment of your debts?
   E. Do you waste time?
   F. Do you waste time for others?

II. Anger (Ephesians 4:31)
   
A. Do you complain?   
    B. Do you find fault?   
    C. Do you have a critical attitude towards any person or thing?   
    D. Are you irritable or cranky?   
    E. Do you ever carry hidden anger?
    F. Do you get angry?
    G. Do you become impatient with others?
    H. Are you ever harsh or unkind?

III. Redeeming the Time  (Ephesians 5:16)
    
A. Do you listen to unedifying radio or TV programs?
     B. Do you read unworthy magazines?
     C. Do you partake in worldly amusements?
     D. Do you find it necessary to seek satisfaction from any questionable source?
     E. Are you doing certain things that show that you are not satisfied in the Lord Jesus?

IV.  Thankfulness (Ephesians 5:20)
     
A. Have you neglected to thank God for all things, the seemingly bad as well as the good.
      B. Have you virtually called God a liar by doubting His Word?
      C. Do you worry?
      D. Is  your spiritual temperature based on your feelings instead of on the facts of God's Word?

Wow! What an awesome list to consider? I find it very interesting that any of us can answer yes to at least one or two of these ( if we are being truly honest with ourselves). There are areas here I continually work on battling the flesh. Thanks for such an insightful hub!

Prairieprincess,

You're quite welcome. I'm still meditating on these almost on a daily basis.

Once again, a nice neat list of things Christians should be exploring on a daily basis in their lives. Like partaking of the bread and wine, we must evaluate our worthiness to participate. Peace

A M,

Yes, it does need to be on a daily basis. Sometimes minute by minute, but if we're to be worthy to participate, that's what it takes. Thanks for stopping by.
