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 105:1-45. What are the parallels in my life with Christ to Israel's bondage in Egypt and their exodus to the promised land?
Ezekiel 20:1-49. Related question, once in the promised land, have I continued to grieve God's heart by taking him for granted, straying, disobeying? Lessons?
I Corinthians 6:12-20. If my body is not my own property, but bought by God as a temple for the Holy Spirit, what difference should this make in my way of life? Has my church faced this?
John 4:39-45. Verse 44, why is this true? Why is Jesus so widely shrugged off in our world today? How does this attitude operate on me?
