Examin Sunday 23 July 2016

If you were to stand before the Heavenly Throne a few minutes from now, what would your fate be - would the Lord judge you to be among the wheat or the tares? Ponder this matter with great soberness; and take time over the task. Consider each of the commandments in turn and what the Church teaches of how they are to be obeyed. Are you indeed obedient to them? Answer this honestly without making excuses. Objectively judge yourself – have you followed what you have been taught in relation to each? If you cannot in truth say that you have, remember the fate of the tares. Ask God's pardon for the failures of the past and his grace to do better for what remains of you life; giving thanks that you have been afforded the time to begin afresh the task of living a life that is pleasing to him.
