Psalm 119:8

Psalm 119:8

This verse is a recognition of our need for God’s help in obeying His commands. It is impossible for the unregenerate to obey. There may be outward conformity in some of the things of the Lord, but the heart, mind and soul still rebel. For the believer, you won’t grow in holiness if you try to merely clean up your outward actions and words. Heart change will drive a walk that is in line with the Lord’s commands. Where there is no change in walk, there has been no change in heart, and therefore conversion never occurred.

Examine yourself today, to see if you are in the faith. – 2 Corinthians 13:5

Do you have an interest in God’s word? Has it made you more like Christ?

Two very simple questions to help with the self-examination commanded in 2 Corinthians 13:5.
