Bible Sunday 12/3: Flood of Converts

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 113:1-9. Verse 6 KJV, when has God humbled himself to get down into the details of my life? What did I learn? How can I pay it forward?

Esther 8:1-17. Verse 17, the Jews gain many converts. What would it take in my community for Christians to gain many converts? What part can I and my church play?

Revelation 9:13-21. Even when one in three are killed, the survivors won't repent. Can a whole civilization have a death wish? Does ours? I'm just one person. What can I do?

Luke 20:27-40. If I lived today and every day with one eye on the resurrection, how might others notice?
