This Week in Family Worship

Look back:  Read back over Psalm 31 and remember in the midst of trial David commits his spirit into the hands of God, his faithful redeemer.

Look ahead: This coming Sunday, Pastor Michael will be preaching from Psalm 32. Read the passage several times during the week with your family.

Ask: Read this psalm along with Ephesians 2:1-10. On what grounds does God forgive people? How does our forgiveness in Christ motivate us to pray? (look at Psalm 32:6).

Pray: Adoration: Praise God for his justice, mercy, and steadfast love. Confession: Confess any sin the psalm brings to mind (look at v. 9). Thanksgiving: Thank God for promise of forgiveness of sin in Christ. Supplication: Pray for those you know who may be stubbornly opposing the Lord and who are without understanding of the gospel.

Sing: Visit the blog for this week's music. You can also find our music playlists on Spotify.

Catechize: (New City Question 41)
Q:
What is the Lord's Prayer?
A: Our Father in heaven, hallowed be your name, your kingdom come, your will be done, on earth as it is in heaven. Give us today our daily bread. And forgive us our debts, as we also have forgiven our debtors. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil.

From Sunday School on June 5:

CHRIST CONNECTION

This is the big idea of how this week’s Bible story points to Jesus.

  • Older Preschool: The Israelites did not trust God. They wanted a king. God gave the Israelites a king, but He had a plan to send His Son, Jesus, to be king over the whole world. Jesus would be the perfect King. Jesus would bring peace and save people from sin.
  • Kids: God intended for a heavenly king to rule over Israel, but the Israelites did not trust God’s plan. They wanted a king like the nations around them. God had a better plan: to eventually send His Son, Jesus, to be the perfect King forever.

BIG PICTURE QUESTION & ANSWER

This is an important biblical truth that your child will encounter each week of this unit. 

  • Older Preschool: Why does sin separate us from God? Because God is holy.
  • Kids: Why does sin separate us from God? Because God is holy, sin has broken our relationship with God.

KEY PASSAGE

This is a Bible verse that relates to what your child will encounter each week of this unit. 

  • Older Preschool: I said: Woe is me ... because I am a man of unclean lips ... and ... my eyes have seen the ... LORD. Isaiah 6:5
  • Kids: Then I said: Woe is me for I am ruined because I am a man of unclean lips and live among a people of unclean lips, and because my eyes have seen the King, the LORD of Armies. Isaiah 6:5
