Bible Wednesday 5/16: Melody

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 119:121-144. KJV verses 122, 124, 125, If I pray repeatedly, "God, I am your servant," all day today, how might my thoughts and actions change?

Ezekiel 46:1-24. Verse 18, God's word recognizing private property and limited government. Why are these congruent with the character of God? Does my church uphold this?

Ephesians 5:8-21. Verse 19, why is music important to the Christian's relationship with God, individually and congregationally? How can I live into this more fully myself?

John 17:1-10. Verse 3, in addition to what it will do for me after death, what difference does the eternal life I have in Jesus make for me this very day? How is it evident to others?
