Bible Thursday 9/13: Ambassadors

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 59:1-17. Verse 8 KJV, what threats that I tremble at, is God laughing at even now? How can I take refuge in his invincible fortress today?

Job 20:1-29. Verse 15, when have I indulged a false hunger or desire and paid a heavy price?

II Corinthians 5:12-21. Verse 20, who needs to have me reach out to them today as an ambassador of Christ, a go-between for their reconciliation with God?

Mark 15:1-5. Is Jesus my king in a constant and practical way? What proof can I give? What evidence would others notice?
