Devotional

June 4 – 10, 2017, wk 23

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).

  2. Memorize 

    Why must the Redeemer be truly God? (Kidz Memory in Blue)

    That because of his divine nature his obedience and suffering would be perfect and effective; and also that he would be able to bear the righteous anger of God against sin and yet overcome death.

     

  3. Meditate

    Acts 2:24 God raised him up, loosing the pangs of death, because it was not possible for him to be held by it.

  4. 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.
