Christ in sincerity. Amen.
2) Do you have joy from Jesus Christ?
John 15:11 "These things I have spoken to you, that My joy may
remain in you, and that your joy may be full."
3) Is your peace found in Jesus Christ?
Ephesians 2:14-16 For He Himself is our peace, who has made both
one, and has broken down the middle wall of separation, having
abolished in His flesh the enmity, that is, the law of commandments
contained in ordinances, so as to create in Himself one new man from
the two, thus making peace, and that He might reconcile them both to
God in one body through the cross, thereby putting to death the
4) Is your longsuffering due to being persecuted for Jesus
2 Timothy 3:10-12 But you have carefully followed my doctrine,
manner of life, purpose, faith, longsuffering, love, perseverance,
persecutions, afflictions, which happened to me at Antioch, at
Iconium, at Lystra; what persecutions I endured. And out of them all
the Lord delivered me. Yes, and all who desire to live godly in
Christ Jesus will suffer persecution.
5) Christian kindness is based on the knowledge of the Lord
2 Peter 1:5-8 But also for this very reason, giving all diligence,
add to your faith virtue, to virtue knowledge, to knowledge
self-control, to self-control perseverance, to perseverance
godliness, to godliness brotherly kindness, and to brotherly kindness
love. For if these things are yours and abound, you will be neither
barren nor unfruitful in the knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ.
6) Christian goodness is based on the glorification of the Lord
2 Thessalonians 1:11-12 Therefore we also pray always for you that
our God would count you worthy of this calling, and fulfill all the
good pleasure of His goodness and the work of faith with power, that
the name of our Lord Jesus Christ may be glorified in you, and you in
Him, according to the grace of our God and the Lord Jesus Christ.
7) Faithful Christians are servants of the Lord Jesus
1 Corinthians 4:1-2 Let a man so consider us, as servants of
Christ and stewards of the mysteries of God. Moreover it is required
in stewards that one be found faithful.
8) Is your meekness and gentleness from the Lord Jesus
2 Cor 10:1 Now I, Paul, myself am pleading with you by the
meekness and gentleness of Christ; who in presence am lowly among
you, but being absent am bold toward you.
9) True Christian faith in the Lord Jesus Christ produces
Acts 24:24-25 And after some days, when Felix came with his wife
Drusilla, who was Jewish, he sent for Paul and heard him concerning
the faith in Christ. Now as he reasoned about righteousness,
self-control, and the judgment to come, Felix was afraid and
answered, "Go away for now; when I have a convenient time I will call
Note: Are you manifesting the fruit of the Holy Spirit? Is your
life Christ centered?
John 15:1-5 "I am the true vine, and My Father is the vinedresser.
Every branch in Me that does not bear fruit He takes away; and every
branch that bears fruit He prunes, that it may bear more fruit. You
are already clean because of the word which I have spoken to you.
Abide in Me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself,
unless it abides in the vine, neither can you, unless you abide in
Me. I am the vine, you are the branches. He who abides in Me, and I
in him, bears much fruit; for without Me you can do nothing."
