Bible Wednesday 9/27: Light Affliction

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. Verse 99, who's a teacher I respected, that didn't know the true God? Verse 100, who's a great mind of ancient times that fell short of the Gospel? Prayer point?

I Chronicles 6:1-81. Why did God reserve the Old Testament priesthood for this one tribe, the Levites? Why did he discontinue it in the New Testament? Why does it matter to me?

II Corinthians 4:1-18. Verse 16, what does this dynamic look like for me right now, the outward man perishing and the inward man being renewed? Encouragement for today?

Luke 9:28-36. Why were Moses and Elijah present for Jesus' transfiguration? What difference does any of it make in my situation today?
