John's Daily Scripture Search
I was raised on making time for Bible study every morning, mindful of Jesus' call to "Search the scriptures" (John 6:39). It has become as much a part of starting my day as breakfast, bathing, or breathing. (I mainly use the King James Version.)
Donna and I rely on a periodical called the St. James Daily Devotional Guide. With four readings each day, drawn from the historic lectionary of mere Christianity, it covers the entire Bible every two years. There are background notes by editor Patrick Reardon, along with suggested prayers.
So this daily blog isn't about my interpretations. It just offers a self-examining question that has occurred to me from each of the four readings. "Examine yourselves, whether ye be in the faith," says St. Paul (II Cor. 13:5). That's the idea here.
I hope you'll join for updates on my postings.
