The Celebration of Discipline

Self-Examination

Philippians 2:5

 

Synopsis:     Paul said “if we would examine ourselves, we would not be judged by God…” (1 Corinthians 11:27-32).  That sounds like a good incentive for self-examination.  In the same way self-discipline sounds a lot better than God’s discipline.  Both will lead to a better you which is what God has in mind. 

        God examines our motives and our heart and so should we (Proverbs 16:2; 21:2).  God is the one who sets the standard and Jesus is the one who demonstrated how.  Even He disciplined His life according to the Father’s standards (Philippians 2:1-18). 

        Believers are in good company when they examine their motives for actions against the standard of the Father’s love.

Scripture Text (NLT): 1 Corinthians 11:27-32; Proverbs 16:2; 21:2; Philippians 2:1-18
