This Week in Family Worship

Look back:  Read back over Psalm 34 and remember David desires all who know and love the Lord to join him in praise.

Look ahead: This coming Sunday, Pastor Michael will be preaching from Psalm 35. Read the passage several times during the week with your family.

Ask: How would you describe those who contend with David? What does v. 27 say about David's trust in the Lord and his disposition towards his people?

Pray: Adoration: praise God for his justice and righteousness and that he sees the suffering of his people. Confession: Confess any sin Psalm 35 brings to mind (consider how we might repay evil for evil or rejoice at the misfortuntes of our enemies). Thanksgiving: Thank God for vindicating Jesus through his resurrection and for his ultimate vindication of his people when he returns. Supplication: Pray for those you might know who would be malicious towards you or who would rejoice over calamity in your life.

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

From Sunday School June 26:

CHRIST CONNECTION

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

  • Older Preschool: God is good to judge sin. He is the Judge of all the earth, and He always does what is right. The good news of the gospel is that Jesus took the punishment our sin deserves, and Jesus gives His righteousness to everyone who trusts in Him.
  • Kids: God is good to judge sin. He is the Judge of all the earth, and He always does what is right. God will punish the guilty. The good news of the gospel is that Jesus took the punishment our sin deserves, and everyone who trusts in Him is declared righteous before God.

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
