Bible Tuesday 9/19: Cost of Discipleship

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 61:1-8. Verse 4 KJV, what new view of God do I gain from thinking of his wings? How does this meet a need for me today?

Judges 19:1-30. Some say this story shows that sexual license is deadly. Some say the Bible is out to scare and control people. What say I? What says my church?

Colossians 3:1-17. From this portrait of the old man and the new, itemizing the change Jesus makes possible in us, what qualities on each list have my name on them?

Luke 6:20-26. Verse 22, what has it cost me to follow Jesus?  Worth the cost? How can I follow him more sacrificially today?
