X-Ray Questions (David Powlison)

Paul tells us in 2 Corinthians 13:5 to examine ourselves and test ourselves to see whether we are in the faith.  This type of introspection is crucial for the believer.  Ignoring the dealings of the inner self can be spiritually destructive on numerous levels. 

David Powlison (CCEF) has included 35 X-ray questions (pdf) for this kind of examination.  I would recommend his book Seeing With New Eyes as well for a solid biblical understanding of Christian counseling from the Scriptures.
