Charles Spurgeon On Self-Examination

It is so important to have conversations with ourselves. The most honest conversations are the ones where we are alone with the Holy Spirit.

C.H. Spurgeon“Examine yourselves, dear friends, then, by this. I do not ask you whether your hearts are perfect—they are not; I do not ask you whether your hearts never go astray, for they are prone to wander; but I do ask you: Is your heart resting upon Jesus Christ? Is it a believing heart? Does your heart meditate upon divine things? Does it find its best solace there? Is your heart a humble heart? Are you constrained to ascribe all to sovereign grace? Is your heart a holy heart? Do you desire holiness? Do you find your pleasure in it? Is your heart bold for God? Does your heart ascribe praises to God? Is it a grateful heart? And is it a heart that is wholly fixed upon God, desiring never to go astray?” —Charles Spurgeon

Search me, O God, and know my heart; test me and know my anxious thoughts. Point out anything in me that offends Youand lead me along the path of everlasting life.Psalm 139:23-24
