Our household worship guide this week takes time to look at the Bible’s claims about itself.
Monday, September 7th Scripture: 1 Peter 1:10-12 and 2 Peter 1:16-21 Song: Psalm 136 vs. 1 & chorus pg. 4 Prayer: Thank God for speaking to his people throughout history. Thank God that he still speaks to us today through his word. Ask God to speak to you this week through his word -- that you will know Jesus better.
Tuesday, September 8th Scripture: 2 Tim 3:14-16 and Joshua 1:6-9 Song: Psalm 136 vs. 2-3 & chorus pg. 4 Prayer: Take time to reflect upon the Bible being the actual words of God. Praise God that he uses his word to bring you salvation through faith in Jesus Christ. Ask God for a growing trust in his word -- to lead you in life.
Wednesday, September 9th Scripture: Luke 24:13-27 Song: More Love, O Christ to Thee vs. 1 pg. 5 Prayer: Marvel that all Scriptures are about Jesus! Ask God to show you Jesus in passages that you read in the coming days -- pray that seeing Jesus would not be a stretch of the imagination but instead real thing that makes sense.
Thursday, September 10th Scripture: Psalm 19 Song: More Love, O Christ to Thee vs. 2 pg. 5 Prayer: Praise God that he reveals himself through creation and through his word. Give adoration to God for the beauty and perfection of his word. Ask him to grow your love for his word.
Friday, September 11th Scripture: Psalm 119 Song: More Love, O Christ to Thee vs. 3 pg. 5 Prayer: This is a long love song to God and his word. A whopping 176 verses! You don’t have to read it all in one sitting -- unless you want to. Take the next two to three days to read over this psalm, meditate upon the psalmist’s love for the word and ask God to grow your desire for his word so that you may know and love him more and more.
Saturday, September 12th Scripture: Psalm 119 Song: More Love, O Christ to Thee vs. 4 pg. 5 Prayer: see Friday’s prayer
