Bible Wednesday 6/26: His Name

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 119:121-144. Verse 133 KJV, what order does God expect in my conduct, in families, churches, society? Why is disorder so prevalent in our time? What is my church doing about it?

Leviticus 16:1-34. Such sacrifices no longer being required of Christians, what does God expect of me instead that demonstrates the same exactness, obedience, and solemnity?

Acts 3:11-26. Verse 16, miraculous healing done in Jesus’ name. Why is the Name important in our prayers? What’s really going on when we pray so? How can I center my prayer life on the Name?

Mark 1:21-28. Verse 24, what is there in me that just wants to be let alone, not to have to face Jesus? What would it look like for Jesus this very day to tell that alien presence in my heart, “Shut up. Come out”?
