Bible Wednesday 11/22: Open Door

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 119:121-144. Verse 139 KJV, in what ways am I zealous for God? Where do I need to be more so? When have I gone wrong through mistaken zeal? Prayer point?

II Chronicles 33:1-25. Hezekiah's son strays, then his grandson strays worse. Why do younger generations forsake their fathers' faith? Lessons in my own family? Prayer point?

Revelation 3:7-13. What key has God entrusted to Jesus? What open door has he set before me? What risks and rewards come with that?

Luke 18:31-34. Like the disciples here, does my sin-clouded mind tend to miss the full import of Jesus' betrayal, suffering, death, and resurrection? What's the consequence?
