Examine yourself... 

During this mornings service we spent a few moments reflecting back on 2015. 1 Corinthians 13:5 says "examine yourselves to see whether you are in the faith", self reflection is therefore an important christian practice, and with 2016 closley approaching it feels like a good time for a spiritual MOT.

Once a year I find a quiet coffee shop, grab a hot chocolate and ask myself the following questions from Bill Hybels book Couragour Leadership. Perhaps you may find these questions helpful as well:

Is my calling sure?
Is my vision clear?
Is my passion hot?
Am I developing my gifts?
Is my character summited to Christ?
Is my pride Subdued?
Am I over coming fear?
Is my pace sustainable? 

If you found this helpful, why not pop a date in next years diary to do this excercise again.
