Sunday’s #SelfieCheck on Jealousy- Link up # 1

Have you checked your “Selfie” lately?

My friend Thasia and I are partnering up to prepare the Bride of Christ for the return of our Bridegroom. We will be doing a weekly video or a blog post on examining our hearts to see if we are in the faith. See our introductory video for more information. This will be a community link up to help each other in our journey for healing and freedom.

This week’s prompt is: Jealousy
What examples of this heart issue have you struggled with?
What #SelfieCheck Scripture did you use to help you overcome the obstacle of this heart issue?
(Be careful as to not expose someone else, this is a #SelfieCheck only.)

1. Link up your motivating post with the InLinkz button below when available.

2. Feel free to grab the Sunday #SelfieCheck button (on the right) to display on your blog.

We would love for you to add a link to Sunday #SelfieCheck to lead others back here as well.

3. Then, this is the only thing we ask of you. Leave a comment on the post linked up right before yours.

We will keep this link open until next Saturday night and so you will have the whole week to see opportunities for this heart issue to rear it’s ugly head.

Now it is time to fess up and link up:
(By the way this is my first time hosting a link up party so if I have done this wrong please advise, and please support by linking up your posts.)

    2 Cor 13.5 is not about examining yourself to see if you are saved. Paul’s was simply defending his authority as an apostle, which was under attack. He was essentially saying that if your real than I am real because I am the one who brought you the message. Saying that this verse is examining yourself to see of you are saved is nothing more than false works based doctrine brought to us by CALVINISM and ARMINIONISM which are both false doctrines from the pit of Hell. To know we are saved is by COMPLETELY TRUSTING IN THE FINISHED WORK OF CHRIST, PERIOD, PERIOD, PERIOD. Sadly, there many people at Calvary and any other churches trusting in CHRIST plus their good behavior. That will lead many to Hell, not Heaven. Jeff D

      Hi Jeff, thank you for stopping by. I appreciate your feedback. However, I want you to know that we are definitely not here to make a theological stance. We are here to deal with the issues of our heart. Issues that we all deal with and prevent us from being used of God to the fullest while here on earth. We are by no means referring to Salvation and works. We are dealing with heart issues that we all need healing from. I hope you will join us as we continue to search our hearts and rid ourselves of the filth that keeps us from moving forward spiritually. (This does not mean we clean our selves up to go to heaven) On the contrary, we trust God to clean us up to be effective vessels to spread His love. When I have junk in my heart, it keeps me from ministering His love. So I like to examine my heart to make sure I am walking in the Spirit and not the flesh. For when I walk in the flesh, I do not attract the people to Jesus. God bless you Jeff.

    Thank you for showing your support by watching the video. As far as you disagreeing with us, I pray that you will go back and look at the scripture in context (Chapters 12, 13 and 14) to get the full understanding of why Paul wrote that letter, then you will see that we did in fact properly apply Scripture.
    You are right when you say that Paul was defending his authority as an apostle but that was towards the beginning of Paul’s letter, in chapter 12. Paul felt like he had to defend his authority because the very people who he boasted about, began talking badly about him then tried to discredit him as an apostle. Paul then went on to explain that he did and said certain things in order strengthen them, not to strengthen himself. He wanted to strengthen them because he was afraid that when he went back to visit them a third time, he was going to find that they were living in their old sinful ways and with an unrepentant heart (12:21). Chapter 13 continues the letter with a warning for the Corinthians who were abusing their faith; urging them to test themselves to see if they were truly in the faith “lest they fail the test”. We see this in Chapter 13 verse 2 where Paul says, ” I already gave you a warning when I was with you the second time. I now repeat it while absent: On my return I will not spare those who sinned earlier or any of the others…”
    Sue, I understand you when you say that our being saved is based on us completely trusting in the finished work of Christ. However, along with our salvation we are also commissioned to examine ourselves so that we remain in the faith. I am saying this because it is obviously possible for one who has accepted Christ’s salvation and then step away from the very faith that brought them to it (but that’s a whole other topic).
    In the mean time, if you don’t want to take our word for it, you should try studying some very notable commentators such as
    as Adam Clarke, William Barclay and the like!
    Thank you
