Bible Saturday 12/8: This Cup

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 110:1-7. Verse 4, how does the priesthood of Jesus Christ figure into my life today? What can I expect of him? What does he expect of me?

Isaiah 43:1-28. Verses 18 and 19, what old thing do I need to have God remove from my experience? What new thing do I need to have him do for me?

Revelation 11:1-19. Verse 15, the world’s kingdom becomes Christ’s kingdom. How does political action by the people of God play into this? What’s my role as an individual believer?

Luke 22:14-23. What is the place of the Eucharist, holy communion, in my Christian life?
