Test Yourselves-2 Cor. 13:5 by 


“Test yourselves to see if you re in the faith; examine yourselves! Or do you not recognize this about yourselves, that Jesus Christ is in you~unless indeed you fail the test?” 2 Corinthians 13:5
The grammar places great emphasis on the pronouns “yourselves” and “you”. Paul turned the tables on his accusers; instead of presuming to evaluate his apostleship, they needed to test the genuineness of their faith (cf. Jas. 2:14-26). He pointed out the incongruity of the Corinthians’ believing (as they did) that their faith was genuine and his apostleship false. Paul was their spiritual father (1 Co. 4:15); if his apostleship was counterfeit, so was their faith. The genuineness of their salvation was proof of the genuineness of his apostleship.
To fail the test is literally ‘not approved’. Here it referred to the absence of genuine saving faith.

It is my hope to always bring out something good and positive in all that I do! Despite our outward differences of faith, religion, culture, or even global location, one thing we all as humans embrace is a sense of acceptance, and belonging. Our art is an expression of who we are and a language that needs no words. It is my hope that my work depicts all that is loving and positive in which to edify others. I give all my thanks to my God who has uniquely and wonderfully created us in His image.
