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?
Psalms 137:1-9. Verses 5 and 6, has there been a time this week when I forgot God? What was the consequence? How shall I keep from forgetting him today?
Isaiah 36:1-22. Worldly powers mock God and demoralize his people. What form does this psychological warfare currently take against Christians? What’s our response?
Revelation 5:1-14. Verses 5 and 6, what practical difference will it make for me today, that Jesus is both the Lion who prevails and the Lamb who was slain?
Luke 19:28-40. Palm Sunday. Verse 32, what detail in my life have I treated as too small for Jesus, who ruled even such minutiae as this? Verse 38, why did the crowd acclaim him more as Lion than as Lamb?
