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 68:1-35. Verse 11, KJV, judging by deeds, what is my claim to be in the great company of those publishing (proclaiming) God's word? Action point for today?
Leviticus 8:1-36. Thinking of all the stumbles and second chances Moses and Aaron underwent before coming to this holy occasion, what second chances has God given me? Prayer point?
I Corinthians 15:1-11. Verses 3 and 4, how consistently do I remind myself and others that Christ crucified and risen is the essence of our faith, our hope, and our fellowship? Personal goal?
John 18:12-27. When have I let Jesus down? How did it turn out? What did I learn? Could it happen again?
