Some of you may disagree with today’s devotional topic, however, I believe that all of us need a “Spiritual Check-Up” to determine if we have grown spiritually. In other words, we need to take an inventory of our spiritual lives. This is nothing new. When we take communion, I say, “Let a man examine himself, and so let him eat of that bread, and drink of that cup. For he that eateth and drinketh unworthily, eateth and drinketh damnation to himself, not discerning the Lord’s body. Therefore, it is mandatory for us to check ourselves to make sure that we are growing. In Luke 2:52, we find these words:
“Jesus grew in wisdom and in stature and in favor with God and all the people.”
Jesus was about His Father’s business. His earthly ministry had taken Him many places, and He had grown in the Lord. Even as a child, He was fully aware of what He was called to do. He never wavered from His responsibility as the Father’s Son. When you get a chance, read this entire chapter. Then each of us need to conduct a SpiritualCheck-Up — Has your wisdom increased? Has your prayer life increased? Did you grow spiritually in any other way? Prayerfully, we can all answer, “Yes!” to each of those questions.
