We have all gone to the doctor’s office and have had our eye sight tested. We stand back at a certain distance, cover one eye, then report to the physician the letter that they are pointing to. At the end of the test, the doctor can determine how good or bad our vision is.
Well today, I have a “Vision Test” for you.
As we approach the end of the year, it is a good time evaluate how we did as increasingly devoted followers of Christ in 2015. Below is a “Vision Test” to see how you are doing in looking beyond yourself towards others. Take the test by answering yes or no to the questions and then add up your scores at the bottom.
_____ I am involved in serving the Lord in at least one ministry of the church
_____ I have at least three non-Christian friends.
_____ This past year, I invited at least one new person to church.
