I was wondering how others go about testing their faith to make sure that they are walking in the Will of God and so being obedient? It appears from Matthew 7:21-23 that many people will believe that they are actually doing the will of God by the outcome of their actions, but in actual fact will be living in disobedience.
Matthew 7:21-23: “Not everyone who says to me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but the one who does the will of my Father who is in heaven. On that day many will say to me, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name, and cast out demons in your name, and do many mighty works in your name?’ And then will I declare to them, ‘I never knew you; depart from me, you workers of lawlessness.’
2 Corinthians 13:5-6: Examine yourselves, to see whether you are in the faith. Test yourselves. Or do you not realize this about yourselves, that Jesus Christ is in you?—unless indeed you fail to meet the test! I hope you will find out that we have not failed the test.
How do some of you go about testing your faith and is this meant to be an ongoing process?
