The Weather Test:
Are you a "sailboat" Christian - making progress in the Lord if the winds are favorable? Or are you a "tugboat" Christian - plowing right ahead even through the gales are against you?
The Worry Test:
If you trust do not worry; if you worry you do not trust. Have you found that He keeps him in perfect peace whose mind is stayed on Him, because he trusts God?
The Worldliness Test:
Do you think as the world thinks, go where the world goes, act as the world acts? Does your life give evidence of having your affections set on things above, not on things on the earth?
The Wallet Test:
What proportion of your income last year was turned over for the work of the Lord? Was it at least as much as the tithe which the Jew paid before the grace of God was revealed in Christ?
The Work Test:
How much of your energy is being given to the work of the Lord, and is it a reasonable proportion of what you are expending in the day-by-day task of making a living?
The Witnessing Test:
Are you by "life and lip" commending Christ so that He is attractive to those who do not know Him as personal Savior and Lord, and is the "vote" of your life for Him...or against Him?
The Waiting Test:
The Thessalonian Christians "turned to God from idols to serve the living and true God; and to wait for His Son from heaven, whom He raised from the dead" (1 Thessalonians 1: 9-10). Have you turned, and are you living with His coming in view?
