Psalm 66:1-20. If a friend asked, how would I sum up what God has done for my soul (verse 16) in street terms, not churchy terms? By what actions today can I quietly invite such inquiries?
Isaiah 55:1-13. How can I be more trusting today that God's word is efficacious, never returning void, in a specific area of need I'm facing (verse 11)?
Revelation 20:1-15. What is the second death (verse 6)? Over whom is it powerless? Does that include me? What difference should it make in my thoughts and actions this Christmas?
Luke 1:26-38. How can I go deeper than ever before into the Nativity story this year, marveling not only at the kingly office of Mary's son but also at the faith and obedience of Mary herself?
