John Sutherland Bonnell, the great preacher of a generation ago, has suggested five questions which are useful in evaluating Christian effectiveness and commitment.

Look Closely at them to judge your strengths and weaknesses as a disciple of Christ.

1. Does my life witness each day to the power of the risen Christ?

2. Does my faith in Christ affect thw quality of my daily living, so that there adheres to it a nobility and moral strength?

3. Is there anything in my life that reminds men and women of the Master to whom I have pledged my allegiance?

4. Is there any discerneable difference at all in my life as contrasted with the lives of those who never acknowledged Jesus as Lord and Savior? (See Matthew 5:46-48)

5. Do I manifest in the midst of this fevered generation a serinity of spirit which reveals that the peace of God is dwelling in my heart?

(Quoted in the Elmcrest News, Elmcrest Baptist Church, Abilene, Texas, Vol. 20, No. 7, 2/27/91)
