Bible Wednesday 8/9: Rahab

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 119:97-120. Verses 98-100 KJV, from God's word what's one thing I know that my enemies don't, another thing that secular teachers don't, and another that ancient philosophers didn't?

Joshua 2:1-24. As God here uses a prostitute to accomplish vast good, when have I seen him use an unholy individual or instrument for a holy purpose? Prayer point?

II Peter 3:1-7.  Verse 3 KJV, what slurs against God do the scoffers of today toss out? What are the lusts that motivate them? What is my church doing about it?

Mark 11:1-11. Verse 10, recognizing that many here saying "Hosanna" would soon be saying "Crucify," what are some wrong reasons for which people now follow Jesus? Do any of these infect me?
