March 13 – 19, 2017, wk 11

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 (Hosea 1-8, Mark 10:35 – 13:37, Psalm 35-37, Proverbs 13:21-14:10).

  2. Memorize 

    What does God require in the sixth, seventh, and eighth commandments? (Kidz Memory in Blue)

    Sixth, that we do not hurt, or hate, or be hostile to our neighbor, but be patient and peaceful, pursuing even our enemies with love. Seventh, that we abstain from sexual immorality and live purely and faithfully, whether in marriage or in single life, avoiding all impure actions, looks, words, thoughts, or desires, and whatever might lead to them. Eighth, that we do not take without permission that which belongs to someone else, nor withhold any good from someone we might benefit.

     

  3. Meditate

    Romans 13:9 The commandments, “You shall not commit adultery,” “You shall not murder,” “You shall not steal,” “You shall not covet,” and whatever other command there may be, are summed up in this one command: “Love your neighbor as yourself.”

    Ephesians 4:11-12, “And he gave the apostles, the prophets, the evangelists, the shepherds and teachers, to equip the saints for the work of ministry, for building up the body of Christ…”

  4. Pray

    “Thank God for the leaders that ‘Christ himself’ has given your church, ‘to equip his people for works of service.’ Pray that your church…would see your leaders in the same way that Paul does – not there to do everything themselves, but to equip all of Christ’s people to do his work. Ask God to give your leaders wisdom in discerning the areas where members need equipping the most, and how best they can do that.”  Rachel Jones, 5 Things to Pray for Your Church, p. 16.

    Pray for brothers and sisters in directory with last names starting with G, H, I.

  5. Sing

    Jesus I am Resting Resting” is our song for the week:
