 Spiritual Assessment 

Our Christian life is a journey, and we will arrive at our destination only when we see Jesus.  As with any journey, there are milestones along the path as we travel toward our destination.  Our prayer is that we will make steady progress towards maturity in our relationship with Christ and with others.   Here are some assessment tools that can be used to describe the journey and determine how well we are doing.

Scriptural Concepts to Teach Our Children    from James Dobson, also good for new Christians

"Those who do not think about their own sins make up for it by thinking incessantly about the sins of others. It is healthier to think of one's own. It is the reverse of morbid. It is not even, in the long run, gloomy. A serious attempt to repent and really to know one's own sins is in the long run a lightening and believing process. Of course, there is bound to be a first dismay and often terror and later great pain, yet that is much less in the the long run than the anguish of a mass of unrepented and unexamined sins, lurking in the background of our minds. It is the difference between the pain of the tooth about which you should go to the dentist and the simple straight forward pain which you know is getting less and less every moment when you have had the tooth out."      C.S. Lewis

Accountability Questions

Mutual accountability is sharing, in confidence, our heartfelt Christian sojourn in an atmosphere of trust so we can see where we need help, understand our struggles, and be encouraged to stay on track, seek prayer, and provide support to fellow believers.     Some people meet with an accountabiity partner or a small group each week to review and discuss our Christian walk.   Following are some questions to help with the discussion.   We recommend you review them and select what would be most beneficial for you and your group.

Before meeting with your accountability partner it is always wise to pray:

     Pray that you will become like Jesus.
     Pray that you would be motivated by grace alone.
     Pray for honesty.

James 5:16 Therefore confess your sins to each other and pray for each other so that you may be healed. The prayer of a righteous person is powerful and effective.

Proverbs 27:17 As iron sharpens iron, so one person sharpens another.
