Devotional

May 7 – 13, 2017, wk 19

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 (2 Chronicles 9-16, Luke 1:39-4:37, Psalm 63-66, Proverbs 17:11-24).

  2. Memorize 

    Is there any way to escape punishment and be brought back into God’s favor? (Kidz Memory in Blue)

    Yes, to satisfy his justice, God himself, out of mere mercy, reconciles us to himself and delivers us from sin and from the punishment for sin, by a Redeemer.

  3. Meditate

    Isaiah 53:10–11 Yet it was the will of the Lord to crush him; he has put him to grief; when his soul makes an offering for guilt, he shall see his offspring; he shall prolong his days; the will of the Lord shall prosper in his hand. Out of the anguish of his soul he shall see and be satisfied; by his knowledge shall the righteous one, my servant, make many to be accounted righteous, and he shall bear their iniquities.

    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.

  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.
