Bible Tuesday 1/15: Seeking a Country

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 6:1-10. Verse 9, what prayer of mine right now seems most painfully unheard by God? What am I to do?

Genesis 15:1-21. Verse 6, Abram’s faith counted as righteousness. What are some ways God knows me to be unrighteous? What evidence has he of my faith?

Hebrews 11:8-16. Godly pilgrims seeking a better country. What light does this shed on my life experience?

John 8:21-36. Verses 32-36, slavery and freedom. What light does this shed on my life experience?
