Powlison’s X-Ray Questions
On Sunday I mentioned the wonderful book Seeing With New Eyes by David Powlison. In that book Powlison helps us to uncover the idolatrous motivations of our hearts – the hidden reasons that lurk behind your every action. I was considering typing up all 35 of the questions (as I only gave 7 of them in the sermon). I wasn’t really sure about copyright and all that, but thankfully, there are plenty of people on the internet who seem to have done the job already.
I thoroughly recommend you work through these 35 questions, and journal your answers. I have found this process very helpful. It doesn’t provide a quick-fix solution, but at least it sheds light on those dark corners of your heart that rarely get attention. This, in turn, helps you to repent and change.
So, to see the questions, check out this blog post by Scott Thomas.
