Bible Monday 5/8: Song of Moses

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 52:1-9.  How is my relationship with God like that of a green tree (verse 8)? How does it differ? Action points for my prayer today?

Exodus 15:1-27. How can God be both a warrior (verse 3) and utter love (I John 4:8)? What do I need from him in both aspects today?

Revelation 15:1-8. Why is the song of Moses from Exodus 15 still being sung at the close of human history in Revelation 15? How does that song address my own petitions and praises today?

John 5:31-47. How can I be more alive to the entire Old Testament, especially the Books of Moses, pointing to Jesus (verses 39, 46)? What will this do for my Christian life?
