As mentioned in previous post, spiritual evaluation can be challenging but it is necessary. If you aim at nothing you will indeed hit it every time. So, the Christian life should have some goals in mind for what spiritual growth and sanctification looks like in practice.
These are merely a starting point of discussion. I am careful to not say this is a “check-list” because any sort becomes an addendum to the gospel which would be discouraging at best and heretical at worse. My purpose in presenting this is more so to identify sins and idols of the heart so they can be confessed and grow more deeply in the truth of the gospel.
Lastly, the points are somewhat elementary as a large backdrop in my thinking is for children & teens. However, more thought will need to be done for application in adult life.
