"examine yourselves"

2 Corinthians 13

v5

Examine yourselves, whether ye be in the faith; prove your own selves. Know ye not your own selves, how that Jesus Christ is in you, except ye be reprobates?

There are serious punishments for sin, and we should be serious about dealing with it. We should seriously consider whether we're thinking, saying, or doing anything we shouldn't, and whether there's anything we should be thinking, saying, or doing, that we aren't.

Let's think about whether there's anything we are, anything we own, or any way we spend our time, in our schedules, that the Lord would want us to do differently. And whether there's anything else that the Lord would us to be, or to have, or to spend our time on.

We should be willing to go through pain and sorrow to give up our sin and to do what's right, no matter what the cost is. When we repent, we should admit that it is sin, that it's our own fault, and that we have no excuse.
