    “It’s sometimes said that a church’s prayer meetings are like a spiritual barometer. So what’s the reading on your church’s barometer? Ask that a culture of prayer would permeate your church, and that God would make you into a people who delight in coming together to pray.” – Rachel Jones, 5 Things to Pray for Your Church, p. 21.

    Does Christ’s death mean all our sins can be forgiven?  (Kidz Memory in Blue)

  1. Memorize 

    Why was it necessary for Christ, the Redeemer, to die?  (Kidz Memory in Blue)

    Since death is the punishment for sin, Christ died willingly in our place to deliver us from the power and penalty of sin and bring us back to God. By his substitutionary atoning death, he alone redeems us from hell and gains for us forgiveness of sin, righteousness, and everlasting life.

     

  2. Meditate

    Colossians 1:21–22  And you, who once were alienated and hostile in mind, doing evil deeds, he has now reconciled in his body of flesh by his death, in order to present you holy and blameless and above reproach before him.
