BibleThursday 7/26: The Call

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 50:1-23.  Verses 1, 4, and throughout, God calls out to everyone and everything. How do my church and the overall church pass along this call? How attentive and responsive am I?

I Kings 13:1-34. How do the fearsome events of this chapter illustrate Psalm 50? When have I been recklessly deaf to God's warnings as Jeroboam was here?

Acts 24:1-21. Verses 15 and 21, how readily could someone after knowing me for a while, perceive in me a resurrection-believer, a voice of hope from God?

Mark 7:1-13. In what way does religious legalism tend to divert me from the love that should come naturally?
