The Importance of Self-Examination
A Sermon on 2 Corinthians 13:5
Examine yourselves, to see whether you are in the faith. Test yourselves. Or do you not realize this about yourselves, that Jesus Christ is in you?—unless indeed you fail to meet the test! (ESV)
The importance of regularly examining ourselves; the danger of self-deception; the problems of experience and temptation examined; external religion; the true Christian troubled by unbelief; aware of his own hopelessness.
