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 18:1-50. Verse 28 KJV, what's the specific darkness I pray God will deliver me from this day? How would my life become different if he lights my candle?
Ezekiel 12:1-28. Verses 22 and 23, when has it seemed God was delaying or breaking his promises to me? How can I be sure something is a vision from him and not just an idle thought?
I Corinthians 11:27-34. Does my church take as high a view of holy communion as Paul takes here? How important is this to me as a disciple of Jesus? Changes to make?
John 6:41-59. What does it truly mean for a Christian to "eat Jesus," over and above the occasional wafer and sip quickly swallowed? How can I enter into this today?
