Bible Wednesday 12/13: Lions' Den

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 119:25-48. Verse 29 KJV, what lies (even little fibs and evasions) do I tend to tell myself? Tell others? Or as impossible as it is, attempt to tell God? Action point?

Daniel 6:1-28. With religious freedom such as Christians fight for in America today, Daniel wouldn't have had to face the lions. But who gives a mightier witness, him or us?

Revelation 15:1-8. Verse 3, is the song of Moses and the Lamb (Jesus), one song for one God in the whole Bible, sung in my life? Sung in my church? How could a non-Christian tell?

Luke 22:35-38. Verse 37, what spiritual benefit and guidance can I take from studying the awful events of Jesus' passion just before we celebrate the joyous events of his birth?
