Devotional

JULY 16 – 22, 2017, WK 29

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 (Isaiah 54-61, Acts 15-18:17, Psalm 94-96, Proverbs 20:24-30) Here’s an excellent overview of the remaining 26 chapters of Isaiah which we’re currently reading through:

  2. Memorize 

    How can we be saved? (Kidz Memory in Blue)

    Only by faith in Jesus Christ and in his substitutionary atoning death on the cross; so even though we are guilty of having disobeyed God and are still inclined to all evil, nevertheless, God, without any merit of our own but only by pure grace, imputes to us the perfect righteousness of Christ when we repent and believe in him.

     

  3. Meditate

    Ephesians 2:8–9 For by grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God, not a result of works, so that no one may boast.

  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.
