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 68:1-35. Verse 19 KJV, what loads me down right now? Could it possibly be from God, for my benefit?
Genesis 36:1-43. These men and women, their families and their cities, mattered to God — but not at all to me. Why do I and my family and our city matter to God?
Hebrews 9:11-22. Verse 14 KJV, how do dead works obstruct my service to the living God? How does the blood of Christ rectify that? Action point?
Matthew 10:16-26. Verse 25, demonizing the Master and his disciples. How does this impact my church and me? Why needn’t we fear it?
