First Steps – October 30, 2017

“It is good to renew ourselves from time to time by closely examining the state of our souls, as if we had never done it before. For nothing tends more to the full assurance of faith than to keep ourselves by this means in humility and the exercise of all good works” (John Wesley).

To examine your soul is to reflect upon:

  1. How do you speak?  Do they need to change?
  2. What actions need to change?
  3. What are the intentions behind your words and your actions?

In the end, the hope is that all three answers are infused and bathed in Christ.  If for some reason we have a little bit more to do, invite the Holy Spirit to change your heart so that all things belong to him.
