Bible Thursday 1/3: It's Him

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 68:1-35. Verses 5 and 6, for what families or individuals shall I pray God fulfills these promises in 2019?

Genesis 3:1-24. Verse 5, in what form does the serpent’s offer, “Ye shall be as gods,” subtly present itself to me as life goes along? What’s my defense?

Romans 5:12-21. Paul warns: sin kills. Do I take sin this seriously? Does my church? In America today, all told, is the serpent winning?

John 1:29-34. In my heart, in my family, in my church, is the Lamb winning? Action point?
