Bible Sunday 9/8: Urgency

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 63:1-11. Verse 3, if I really believe this, how will I act today? What are some things I will do and won’t do?

Judges 3:1-31. Verses 5-7, heathen entanglements of the Israelites. What form does this temptation take for Christians today? My church’s role?

Acts 27:33-44. Verse 35, on the sinking ship, Paul thanks God and breaks bread. How does the Eucharist bring us near God in time of need? What’s my experience with thanking God before seeing him show up?

Luke 4:42-44. Jesus ever on the move. What urgency is God imparting to my life today?
