Bible Wednesday 9/4: Right Now

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 119:25-48. Verse 32 KJV, what would it look like today for me to not just walk as God directs, but actually to run in his ways? Action point?

Joshua 23:1-16. Joshua warns Israel they face a choice: obey God or disobey him. In what specific ways does that same choice right now confront me, confront my family, confront my church?

Acts 26:1-11. Verse 8, what difference does it make in my life today that as Christians we serve a God who can raise the dead?

Luke 4:14-21. Verses 18 and 19, six things Jesus says he will do to fulfill prophecy. Which do I especially need from him today? In which of them can I participate as his disciple?
