Bible Sunday 1/15: Salt & Light

Studying this morning's four readings from the St. James Daily Devotional Guide (click to subscribe), I examined myself with these questions. Where is your self-examination leading today?

Psalm 114:1-8. Do I tremble before God (verse 1, KJV)? Or in all honesty do I go along as if trembling is no longer the way I relate to God, trembling is not my style?

Genesis 15:1-21. When have I believed God with faith against all appearances, faith unsupported by evidence, as Abram does here? How did it work out? What did I learn?

Hebrews 6:9-20. By what markers could others notice that my soul is anchored in God's goodness and nothing less (verse 19)?

Matthew 5:13-20. Are being salt and being light the same thing or two different things? How readily would the people I live or work near, perceive me as being either of these?
