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 119:145-176. Verse 164, will I come before God’s presence seven times today? If not, how many? Will it be a real encounter or just a gesture? Why does it matter?
Isaiah 33:1-24. Verse 22, with our country so anxious about government right now, are these words only a lofty sentiment, or do they make a practical difference?
Revelation 3:14-22. Verse 16 KJV, in what ways might Jesus find me lukewarm, and be disappointed in me? Action point?
Luke 19:1-10. What could I do to be more like Zaccheus? What would it cost me? How would it benefit me?
