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 66:1-20. Jesus’ resurrection was obviously world-changing, but how has it been life-changing for me? As verse 16 asks, what has it done for my soul? Whom should I tell?
Ezekiel 2:1-10. Verse 7, when have I had to tell someone things they didn’t want to hear, in the name of God’s love and God’s truth? What was the outcome? Application for now?
I Corinthians 15:1-11. Paul bases his gospel about Jesus on biblical authority and multiple witnesses. Can I offer the same evidence for my testimony as a Christian?
Matthew 28:1-15. What’s the significance of the risen Jesus appearing first to women, not men? Of his heading back to Galilee? Application for now?
