10 POWERFUL QUESTIONS FOR CHRISTIANS TO ANSWER
1. Who is Jesus for you?
Matthew 16:15 He said to them, “But who do you say that I am?” (NKJV)
It’s one thing to have heard about Jesus and another to actually KNOW Jesus yourself. You may have heard that Jesus came into the world to die for your sins, but do you actually live your life believing that? Who is Jesus for you in your everyday life?
Take a moment to reflect and describe who Jesus really is to you, what he means to you, and how he is present in every situation in your life?
How is Jesus present in your life during battles?
How is Jesus present in your life during victories?
Your answers to these questions will help you determine whether Jesus is just another biblical character to you or your God, Lord, and Savior.
2. Where are you currently at in your relationship with Jesus?
Genesis 3:9 Then the Lord God called to Adam and said to him, “Where are you?” (NKJV)
In your walk with Jesus, where are you currently standing?
Are you close to him dwelling and delighting in his presence? Or are you currently feeling far away from him?
Be honest with yourself (God already knows where you’re standing!) and describe where you are currently at in your relationship with Jesus.
It’s important that you become aware of your standing in order to fix your relationship or continue to grow your relationship with Jesus.
3. What do you want Jesus to do for you?
Luke 18:40-41 So Jesus stood still and commanded him to be brought to Him. And when he had come near, He asked him, saying, “What do you want Me to do for you?” (NKJV)
Jesus came with a purpose and for a purpose.
He is willing to save, heal, bless, liberate, and transform.
But, do you want him to do that for you?
Only when you know what you truly want from Jesus, you are able to seek him intentionally.
Identify what areas in your life you want Jesus to work in. What is it that you truly want from Jesus? Do you want him to heal you, fix you, bless you, protect you, or guide you?
4. What kind of doubts are causing you to sink?
Matthew 14:41 And immediately Jesus stretched out His hand and caught him, and said to him, “O you of little faith, why did you doubt?” (NKJV)
What are some of the doubts roaming around your head?
And why are you allowing these doubts steal your faith and cause you to sink?
As you grow in faith and attempt to know God better, the enemy will launch darts of doubt to debilitate, distance, and discourage you. If left unattended, these darts can cause you to drown in the sea of faith. So it’s important that you not only identify these darts of doubt but also fight against them using the Word of God.
5. Why do you seek Jesus?
Luke 2:49 And He said to them, “Why did you seek Me? Did you not know that I must be about My Father’s business?” (NKJV)
Anyone can attempt to follow Jesus, but only those who really want to know Jesus will seek him with their mind, heart, strength, and soul. Take a brief moment to reflect why you follow Jesus and willingly seek him everyday.
What makes seeking Jesus so rewarding?
Why do you continue to seek Jesus even when things aren’t going your way?
6. What are you anxious about? And Why?
Luke 12:26 If you then are not able to do the least, why are you anxious for the rest? (NKJV)
Has anxiety been invading your life lately?
While anxiety is very common, allowing yourself to be consumed by anxiety is a demonstration of lack of faith in God. If you believe that He is capable of working in and through you, what are you anxious about? What is causing this anxiety?
7. Why are you asleep?
Luke 22:46 Then He said to them, “Why do you sleep? Rise and pray, lest you enter into temptation.” (NKJV)
This question may or may not apply to you (currently), but it never hurts to ask.
Have you been a little lazy regarding your relationship with God?
Is it getting harder and harder to read the Bible and pray? Do you feel distanced from God? Have you been falling into temptation frequently?
If you answered yes to any of these questions, then you’re most likely asleep
Spiritual exhaustion is very common and real, but also dangerous as a Christian. Someone who is physically tired can’t perform well in any tasks, so look out for this.
Recognize your exhaustion, find rest in Jesus, and rise up.
8. Do you want Jesus to work in your life?
John 5:6 When Jesus saw him lying there, and knew that he already had been in that condition a long time, He said to him, “Do you want to be made well?” (NKJV)
Jesus wants to work in your life and completely transform you, but if you don’t want him to, he will respect your decision. Unlike us, Jesus is a gentleman.
He doesn’t force anyone to do something they do want to do.
So, no matter how much Jesus wants to heal you, liberate you, change you, or work in you, it is up to you to open your door to him.
Ask yourself, “Do I really want to be made well?”
Do you really want to be free from oppression?
Do you actually want Jesus to change you?
9. Are you living according to Scripture?
Luke 10:26 He said to him, “What is written in the law? What is your reading of it?” (NKJV)
How are you living your life?
Do you seek advice from family members, friends, social media, books, or the internet? Or do you live your life according to what God says?
God gave us His word for us to read it, live by it, and be a reflection of it.
We have the equipment right in front of us, it’s up to use to use it or not
10. Who is condemning you?
John 8:10 When Jesus had raised Himself up and saw no one but the woman, He said to her, “Woman, where are those accusers of yours? Has no one condemned you?” (NKJV)
Because I know how easy it is to fall under pressure, feel condemned by society, or even accuse yourself, I thought I’d share this part of scripture and ask you this question. If Jesus doesn’t condemn you, why are you letting the enemy do it?
Why are you letting others condemn you?
Or most importantly, why are you allowing yourself to feel accused when Jesus paid the ultimate price (price of blood) for your sins?
If you’re living according to God’s Word, there is no reason why you should let the enemy accuse you. Romans 8:1 says, “There is therefore now no condemnation to those who are in Christ Jesus, who do not walk according to the flesh, but according to the Spirit.” (NKJV)
