Bible Tuesday 4/18: Road to Emmaus

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 103:1-22. How does the saving work of Jesus fulfill verses 11-18? What reminds me today I am little better than dust or grass? How would I specially want to feel God's fatherly pity right now?

Song of Solomon 3:1-11. How do the opening verses echo the forlorn men heading for Emmaus (next reading)? When have I felt this way? How did it turn out?

Luke 24:1-12. In what way am I sometimes confused into seeking the living among the dead (verse 5)? Perhaps even in a situation currently vexing me?

Luke 24:13-35. How can I better keep my focus on Jesus Christ with every Bible passage I read, every day (verses 27, 44)?
