Examine Me as Severely as Necessary That I May Confess, Repent and Be Changed

Proverbs 15:6

"Great riches are in the house of those who are right with God."“Great riches are in the house of those who are right with God.” Proverbs 15:6

Lord, am I right with you? Close? Near enough right to receive your riches?

If not, show me where your Holy Spirit needs to work in my life, where I need to be changed and made holy. Examine me as severely as necessary that I may confess, repent and be changed, but do so with as much mercy as possible.

With the Holy Spirit They Spoke the Word of God Boldly

Grow to Become Mature — Act 4:31

With the Holy Spirit They Spoke the Word of God Boldly

With the Holy Spirit they spoke the word of God boldly. – Act 4:31

Do we speak God’s word with boldness or do we avoid speaking the Truth of God for fear we might offend, wound, or become tagged as someone who spouts “hate speech?” Paul calls us to speak truth in love (Ephesians 4:15). Speak in love; speak his Truth.  When we do we “grow to become in every respect the mature body of him who is the head, that is, Christ.”

Bold are those filled with his Holy Spirit of Truth.
