  • 2. Memorize 

    What is the church? (Kidz Memory in Blue)

    God chooses and preserves for himself a community elected for eternal life and united by faith, who love, follow, learn from, and worship God together. God sends out this community to proclaim the gospel and prefigure Christ’s kingdom by the quality of their life together and their love for one another.

  • 3. Meditate

    2 Thessalonians 2:13: We ought always to give thanks to God for you, brothers beloved by the Lord, because God chose you as the firstfruits to be saved, through sanctification by the Spirit and belief in the truth.

  • 2. Memorize 

    Does the Lord’s Supper add anything to Christ’s atoning work? (Kidz Memory in Blue)

    No, Christ died once for all. The Lord’s Supper is a covenant meal celebrating Christ’s atoning work; as it is also a means of strengthening our faith as we look to him, and a foretaste of the future feast. But those who take part with unrepentant hearts eat and drink judgment on themselves.

  • 3. Meditate

    1 Peter 3:18: For Christ also suffered once for sins, the righteous for the unrighteous, that he might bring us to God.

  • 2. Memorize 

    What is the Lord’s Supper? (Kidz Memory in Blue)

    Christ commanded all Christians to eat bread and to drink from the cup in thankful remembrance of him and his death. The Lord’s Supper is a celebration of the presence of God in our midst; bringing us into communion with God and with one another; feeding and nourishing our souls. It also anticipates the day when we will eat and drink with Christ in his Father’s kingdom.

  • 3. Meditate

    1 Corinthians 11:23-26: “For I received from the Lord what I also delivered to you, that the Lord Jesus on the night when he was betrayed took bread, and when he had given thanks, he broke it, and said, “This is my body which is for you. Do this in remembrance of me.” In the same way also he took the cup, after supper, saying, “This cup is the new covenant in my blood. Do this, as often as you drink it, in remembrance of me.” For as often as you eat this bread and drink the cup, you proclaim the Lord’s death until he comes.

    No, only the blood of Christ and the renewal of the Holy Spirit can cleanse us from sin.
