Test Yourself: 31 Bible Verses About Examining Yourself

The fight for salvation is a daily struggle.

As Christian, we must be watchful of the devil and his tricks.

The devil is eager to deceive us in any way he can.

He is determined to steal our salvation by misleading us.

And that’s why routine self-examination is crucial to be saved.

We must examine ourselves daily to ensure we are still on God’s side.

Thankfully, there are numerous bible verses about examining yourself.

These scriptures teach us to assess ourselves if we are still in the faith.

Are we obeying God’s commands? Are we living a righteous life?

And not just that, We must scrutinize what we believe in.

We must examine what our spiritual leaders are teaching us.

And that is because there are lots of false prophets with selfish ambitions in the world.

In simple terms, our spiritual life can be likened to a mirror.

Each day, I wake up, take my bath, and then prepare for work.

After putting my clothes on, I take a look at the mirror.

Right there, I see my faults, and I quickly correct them.

I repeat this every morning, and it’s never a difficult task to do.

Likewise, in our struggle for salvation,  we must similarly examine ourselves.

I have put together test yourselves bible verses to motivate your soul.

Read and be blessed.

Self-examination with these two steps

You have seen there are numerous scriptures about examining yourself. These scriptures teach us to repent, obey God’s command and reevaluate what we believe in.

Here are 2 step processes to assess yourself in the faith.

1.  Examine your faith

What do you believe? Do you believe in the truth?

Is there salvation in what you believe?

Are you being misled by a false teacher?

For many years, I was highly indoctrinated and followed all the rules of my church.

Until a few years ago, God opened my eyes to see the truth.

We can all learn God’s word in the scripture.

We can also determine the truth from the scripture with the help of the Holy Spirit.

God is merciful and has kept his promise to inject his words and commandments into our hearts.

The scripture says,

“This is the covenant I will make with them
    after that time, says the Lord.
I will put my laws in their hearts,
    and I will write them on their minds.”

Each day, I continued studying the bible.

And as I did, I noticed there were lots of flaws with what I already believed in.

One easy way to examine your faith is to study and scrutinize what you have been taught.

There are lots of false teachers in the world. Examine your doctrines by reading the bible.

2. Examine yourselves for repentance

We’ve already seen “examine yourselves bible verses.” But that’s not as easy as it sounds.

We must search through our hearts and minds to see our faults.

We are not perfect and have been corrupted by sin.

Right from the beginning of the world and in our mother’s womb, we have sinned.

But in our imperfections, we can strive to keep God’s commands.

Am I living as expected of a Christian? Do I obey God’s commandments?

May God open your hearts and minds to continually examine ourselves and return to God in truthfulness and purity of the mind. Amen.
