Beloved, hope you have enjoined this week teachings, the Lord has been gracious unto us, Praise the Lord. We are highly privileged to be taught about the Third Person in Trinity whose aim and mission is to help us to finish this race in a more better and noble way. He cautions us and also encourages us when the need arise. He is our greatest mentor and our defender too.

In today’s PLC session we will once again have a practical lesson about our self by having an honest look about ourselves. Different people have different opinion about these but by His grace we will be having a proper and balance of considering the topic before us and you will be highly thankful to God that you are counted worthy to be among those who shall know truth and be set free from the blinded folded of satan and thereafter bring forth fruit unto God and the Lord will rejoice over you to do you good (Rom 7:4Neh 8:10, Jer 32:41). Amen

An Honest Look

So a man should examine himself.—1 Corinthians 11:28

An important step in bringing about a more perfect coordination between heart and mind is to take an honest, straightforward look at what is going on beneath the surface of your life.

I have often invited my readers to spend a few days taking an honest look at themselves. The reactions I have gotten to this suggestion have been quite interesting. Some Christians hear in my words a call to self-preoccupation and become concerned that I am pushing them toward becoming engrossed with their aches and pains.

One of my readers put it like this: “What people need is to forget about themselves and concentrate on reaching out to others; then their personal problems will quickly be forgotten.” Others have taken an opposite position and said, “We need more of this, for our hearts are so self-deceived that unless we are constantly challenged in this way, we will never get through to a close relationship with God.” I am unhappy about both those reactions, for both are unbalanced positions.

The first one fears that taking a look beneath the surface of our lives leads to unhealthy self-preoccupation. And the second opinion assumes that constant self-examination is the only way forward. But I believe an occasional, honest, straightforward look at what is going on beneath the surface of our lives contributes greatly to our spiritual progress, providing it is done in a proper and balanced way.


O God, help me to see that in inviting me to examine myself, You are not seeking to demean me but to develop me; not to take away from my spiritual stature but to add to it. Make me an honest person—with You, with myself, with others. Amen.

Where does God require truth?

What must we allow God to do?

Beloved, do you know that the long suffering of God is to bring salvation to us? (2Pet 3:15) Yes that is why we should follow the dictates of the Holy Spirit daily so that the project given to us while we are here on earth will not fail but prosper, even if we will not complete it by Divine design, we will have something worthy to hand over to those coming behind us while we join the cloud of witnesses and cheer them on. Praise the Lord.

We must have an honest look at ourselves not seeking to be self righteous but to make us a better person in relationship with God and fellow men.

Help us Holy Spirit to carry out this function to please God in Jesus Name. Take away from us self-pity, and often time lackadaisical attitude that befall us as we run this race. May God help us in Jesus Name. Amen!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Beloved, hope we are truly blessed by this teaching? Are you resolved to examine yourself in a healthy way? Bearing in mind that this attitude if well develop and carried out will make us better children of God and there will be no surprise at the heavenly gate (Matt 25:41). May Holy Spirit help always to look at our life in a very critical way and be honest to ourselves in Jesus Name.

Have a blissful weekend and see you next week if Jesus tarries. Amen!!!!!!!!!!!!

Remain blessed in the Lord
