Examine Yourself

"Examine your own selves, whether you are in the faith.
Test your own selves. Or don’t you know
about your own selves, that Jesus Christ is in you?
—unless indeed you are disqualified."
2 Corinthians 13:5 (WEB)
"But let a man examine himself, and
so let him eat of the bread, and drink of the cup."
1 Corinthians 11:28 (WEB)
"Be diligent in these things. Give yourself wholly to them,
that your progress may be revealed to all.
Pay attention to yourself and to your teaching.
Continue in these things, for in doing this you will
save both yourself and those who hear you,"
1 Timothy 4:15-16 (WEB)
