Bible Sunday 4/2: Liberty in Christ

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 118:1-29. What situation will I face today that poses a choice between trusting human help and trusting God (verse 8)?

Zechariah 2:1-15. If today I were to seek the Lord with meekness and righteousness, how might others notice (verse 2)?

Galatians 5:1-11. If the liberty in verses 1 and 13 is about relating me to Christ spiritually, not relating me to others politically, how am I to think and act this day?

Matthew 22:23-33. What hints can I find here of the perspective that Jesus would have me take on the "marriage wars" of our time?
