Bible Sunday 12/2: Martyrs

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 147:1-20. Verse 3, what heartaches, inner wounds or sorrows, mine or someone else’s, can I bring to God for healing today?

Isaiah 37:1-38. Verse 31, as a Christian, what is my root and what is my fruit? What new commitment shall I make for 2019 to deepen the root and so increase the fruit?

Revelation 6:1-11. Verse 9, martyrs for the word of God. What more can I be doing, and my church, for persecuted Christians everywhere?

Luke 19:41 - 20:8. Verse 46, who gets robbed if we don’t fill God’s house with prayer? How does that occur? How is my church doing?
