Devotional

JULY 9 – 15, 2017, WK 28

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 45-53, Acts 11:19-14:28, Psalm 89:38-93:5, Proverbs 20:17-23) Here’s an excellent overview of the remaining 26 chapters of Isaiah which we’re currently reading through:

  2. Memorize 

    What happens after death to those not united to Christ by faith? (Kidz Memory in Blue)

    At the day of judgment they will receive the fearful but just sentence of condemnation pronounced against them. They will be cast out from the favorable presence of God, into hell, to be justly and grievously punished, forever.

     

  3. Meditate

    John 3:16–18, 36 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life. For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but in order that the world might be saved through him. Whoever believes in him is not condemned, but whoever does not believe is condemned already, because he has not believed in the name of the only Son of God. . . . Whoever believes in the Son has eternal life; whoever does not obey the Son shall not see life, but the wrath of God remains on him.

  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.
