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 41:1-13. Verse 12 KJV, if integrity requires being true throughout, untainted with falsehood, where does God see me falling short of that? Am I gaining or slipping?
Jeremiah 19:1-15. Verse 9, what is the spiritual counterpart to cannibalism? How does it manifest in our world today, even among Christians? What's the antidote?
Romans 7:1-6. Verse 4, if I as one believer and all of us as a people are to be spouses to the risen Christ, what does offer us? How does it obligate us? Application for today?
Matthew 12:38-42. Why is Jesus a better rescuer of the lost than Jonah? Why is he a better ruler over us than Solomon? How do I need him to rescue me or govern me today?
