Devotional

June 11-17, 2017, wk 24

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 week, 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 week (or a song from a previous week) will be used during morning worship service.

    1. Read

      Or listen to Bible Reading for the day in the Reformation Church App (Isaiah 2-9, Luke 17:11-21:38, Psalm 75:1-78:8, Proverbs 19:11-19).

      Here’s a video that will certainly help you in understanding Isaiah:

  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.

    Acts 2:41-42, 44 Those who received [Peter’s] word were baptized…And they devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching and the fellowship, to the breaking of bread and the prayers…. And all who believed were together and had all things in common.

  3. Pray

    “Ask that your church would also be devoted to spending the time together required to forge meaningful relationships. Thank God for the friendships you already have at church; then prayerfully think about who else you could seek to deepen your relationship with this month.” – Rachel Jones, 5 Things to Pray for Your Church, p. 20.

    Pray for brothers and sisters in directory with last names starting with V – Z.

  4. Sing

    Come Ye Sinners” is our song for the week:
