It's that time of the year again. Winter is over and spring has sprung. Every year about this time my doctor sets up an appointment for an examination. I don't know why I dislike a physical examination. I am old. I have issues. I have had my share of doctors. Some might say I've had more than my share. I have been told by someone that it's not a test. Go ahead and be quiet. The doctor will check you out and let you know if you need medical attention. You need to know if you have a problem. Just because you feel well right now does not mean that you are in good health. You may have a problem you don't know about. My wife always gives me good advice. I am afraid to not listen to her. I head for the doctor's office. I'm not eager to go but I don’t let her know. We all know that we need this evaluation. We need a check up at least once a year.
The same is true in our spiritual life. We need to stop from time to time and check out our spiritual condition. In our church we have the Lord's Supper. This is an excellent place to check out our beliefs. The Bible says "Let a man examine himself, and so let him eat of the bread and drink of the cup" lst Corinthians 11:28. Jesus died for us on the cross. We need to turn to Him to consider the condition of our heart. Search your heart before you drink of the cup. Make sure you are on the right path and then move forward in His name.
