The AMMT Test

It isn’t some professional exam. ‘AMMT’ stands for:
A – Action
M – Motive
M – Method
T – Timing

You can simply call it the ‘4-way test’. This is what it’s all about:

ACTION: Your actions. Are they right? What does God say in His Word about what you do? The Word is the most reliable yardstick by which we can ‘measure’/analyse our actions. Like binary codes, in comparison with what is in the Word, our actions can either be right in God’s eyes or totally wrong. Truth is NOT relative as some suggest

MOTIVE: Your intentions. What are your actual reasons for doing what you do? You have to search your heart deeply and honestly for the answer to that question. Again the Word, an active discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart, would be very useful here. It is said that the road to hell is paved with good intentions. This means that the fact that we have good intentions does not necessarily mean that our actions will turn out right. This is the importance of method.

METHOD: “There is a way that seems right to a man but in the end it leads to death” (Prov 14:12). Any way other than God’s way to doing something always results in disappointment and heartache – these are only mild consequences. It could equally result in more serious consequences as deep loss, painful memories, overwhelming sorrow and even death (physical or spiritual). So ensure that you are doing things only God’s way.

TIMING: We all know that there is a right time for every thing. The laws of nature support this and the Bible as well corroborates it. Timing is an extension of method. It follows that if an action is to be carried out God’s way, it must be done in His time. This calls for a lot of discipline in exercising patience to wait for His time. It also means being ready to move when God says “Go”. Who says God is slow? Often, it is our ill-preparedness that causes delay because God in His mercy chooses to give us enough time to be prepared.

Speaking of timing: What better time to begin applying the 4-way test than now?




If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
