Bible Tuesday 4/16: The Bridegroom

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 94:1-23. Verse 6 KJV, murdering the fatherless. What more can I and my church do to protect the unborn? Or do Christians make too much of the abortion issue as some contend?

Habakkuk 1:1-17. Verse 6, what godless element or influence is God using in America right now to break up our self-absorption and draw us closer to him?

John 12:42-50. Verse 43, what test may I soon face as to whether I love the praise of men more than the praise of God?

Matthew 25:1-13. Verse 8, how do I sometimes try to borrow someone else’s closeness to God instead of cultivating my own?
