Bible Monday 4/17: He's Alive

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 66:1-20. As a follower of Christ crucified and risen, what can I do this week to invite others "come and see" (verse 5), "come and hear" ( verse 16)?

Sonf of Solomon 2:1-17. If my experience of Jesus includes being invited to feast with him under a banner of love (verse 4), in what everyday terms can I tell this to others it might bless?

Matthew 28:1-10. Why did the Lord head back to Galilee after his resurrection? What lesson does this have for me if I want to companion with him now?

Matthew 28:11-20. What more could I and my church be doing to obey the Great Commission (verses 19-20)?
