Missed a Week?


Day 16

Read Genesis 16
  • What is one of the most comforting things that you learned about the nature of God from this chapter?
  • What does Abram and Sarai’s treatment of Hagar teach us about them? Were they perfect?
  • Psalm 8 says that God is mindful of us. How can you rest in knowing that you are not an afterthought to God, that He sees everything you are going through?

Day 17

Read Genesis 17
  • Why do you think God gave Abram and Sarai new names?
  • What keeps you from doing what God has asked you to do?

Day 18

Read Genesis 18
  • Sarah laughs when she hears that she will physically have a baby within the year. How has God been faithful to you even when you’ve had moments of faithlessness?
  • What’s a prayer you’ve prayed that hasn’t been answered the way you wanted it to? How did God change you or work in your life even though you didn’t get the answer you wanted?
  • How can you be an intercessor for someone today? What’s a big, bold, courageous prayer you could be praying for someone else right now?

Day 19

Read Genesis 19
  • How are you like Lot’s wife? How are you different from Lot’s wife?
  • Lot’s treatment of his daughters, behavior of his wife, and the fact that his future son – in – laws did not take him seriously, shows that he likely became like the depraved culture around him. Are you becoming like the culture around you in any ways?

Day 20

Read Genesis 20
  • Is there a familiar sin you keep running back to? Why? What is one thing you can do to “throw it off” today?
  • Contrast Abraham and Abimelech. What do you learn from each of them?
  • If you believed, truly believed, that God calls you righteous, holy, and blameless, how would that change the way you lived?

Weekly Catechism Memorization

Teaching the fundamental foundations of our faith in question & answer format


Q: Who is Jesus Christ?

A: Jesus Christ is the eternal Son of God, who came down from heaven and became a human, born of the Virgin Mary, lived a sinless life, and voluntarily died on the cross, to pay for the sins of mankind. He rose from the grave three days later, ascended into heaven, and is seated at the right hand of God, until the time comes for Him to return and judge the earth, both the living and the dead.

Abbreviated Answer:

Jesus Christ is the eternal Son of God, who became a man, to die for the sins of the world. He rose from the grave, went back to heaven, and will one day return to judge the earth.
