Devotional

JULY 30 – AUGUST 5, 2017, WK 31

During each week of 2017, a (1) devotional consisting of a reading (or listening) from Scripture, a (2) New City Catechism question and answer (newcitycatechism.com), a (3) primary scripture passage behind that Q&A and a scripture to consider in prayer, a (4) prayer project for the week, and then finally, a (5) song of the month, will be posted to queensreformation.org/devotional and to the “Devotional” portion of the Reformation Church App. On each Sunday following the devotional, the New City Catechism Q&A and the song of the month (or a song from a previous month) will be used during morning worship service.

  1. Read

    Or listen to Bible Reading for the day in the Reformation Church App (Nahum 2-3, Zephaniah 1- 3, Acts 23:12-28, Psalm 101-103, Proverbs 21:8-14)

  2. Memorize 

    What do we believe by true faith?(Kidz Memory in Blue)

    Everything taught to us in the gospel. The Apostles’ Creed expresses what we believe in these words: We believe in God the Father Almighty, Maker of heaven and earth; and in Jesus Christ his only Son our Lord, who was conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, died, and was buried. He descended into hell. The third day he rose again from the dead. He ascended into heaven, and is seated at the right hand of God the Father Almighty; from there he will come to judge the living and the dead. We believe in the Holy Spirit, the holy catholic church, the communion of saints, the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body, and the life everlasting.

     

  3. Meditate

    Jude 1:3 I found it necessary to write appealing to you to contend for the faith that was once for all delivered to the saints.

  4. Pray

    “Pray that your church would also be sacrificial in your generosity–always ready to meet each other’s material, emotional and spiritual needs. Pray that you would be willing to give up your time, money or convenience to ensure that others have what they need.” – Rachel Jones, 5 Things to Pray for Your Church, p. 21.
