Bible Friday 8/2: Setting Her Free

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 69:1-36. Verse 9 KJV, am I prone to not enough zeal or too much? How would God have me serve him more zealously at this time in my life?

Numbers 26:1-65. Another census of all Israel. Is my church more reliant on the quality of members’ faith, or simply on the quantity of persons in the pews?

Acts 16:16-24. Verse 19, how do entrenched worldly interests, economic and political, seek to silence the gospel of Jesus Christ in our times? What am I doing about it?

Mark 13:24-31. Verse 31, what are some of the undying words of Jesus that I can dwell upon today?
