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 29:1-11. What the voice of the Lord does. How can I, at least in a small way, experience this today?
Exodus 21:1-36. Verses 12-17, crimes punishable by death. Do I regard these as less binding than the Decalogue in the previous chapter? How does the death penalty fit—or not—with biblical theology as I understand it?
Joshua 5:1-12. Verse 9 KJV, rolled away the reproach of Egypt. What aspects of my sin nature am I still needing God’s help to be fully free of?
John 6:51-59. Eating of Jesus’ flesh and blood. How would I explain this to a teenager with no background in the Christian faith, including what difference I believe it makes in my daily life?
