Fletcher’s Questions by Nancy Leigh DeMoss 04/12/11

Nancy Leigh DeMoss: I find it easy to rush right through a day without taking time to evaluate whether I’m doing the right things from the right motives. Sometimes I need to stop and examine my life.

The Puritan writer, John Fletcher, used a series of questions to examine his heart.

  • Do I have pride?
  • Am I dead to all desire for praise?
  • Do I have the presence of God in my life?
  • Am I free from the fear of man?
  • Do I embrace the cross in every way it presents itself to me?

Nancy: It’s important to take some time on a regular basis to stop and take stock and place our lives under God’s divine searchlight.

  • Am I willing to give up my ease and my convenience to minister to others?
  • Am I ready to give up a point when I am contradicted?
  • Am I content with whatever is or may be, feeling that God, the Author of all events, does and will do all for my good?

Verse of the Day

[The Last Enemy Destroyed] But now Christ is risen from the dead, and has become the firstfruits of those who have fallen asleep. For since by man came death, by Man also came the resurrection of the dead. For as in Adam all die, even so in Christ all shall be made alive. — 1 Corinthians 15:20-22 (NKJV)
