Examin Sunday 31 August 2014

It was Socrates who said that the unexamined life is not worth living. Something that was true in Ancient Greece is perhaps doubly true today. That great philosopher, groping though he was toward an understanding that there was but one God who stands behind all we see in the world, had not been privileged as we have been by the way that God has revealed himself to us, particularly in how he has told us of the hope we have eternal life through the promises we have from our Lord Jesus Christ. We therefore should feel ever impelled to examine our lives to see how they match up with what it is that God asks of us; and not only ask his forgiveness for the ways in which we fail, but strive ever harder to live the most Christ-like life we possibly can.
