Preparing our Hearts to Worship
The Belt of Truth
In an effort to help you prepare for the October 16th, 2016, Sunday morning corporate worship gathering and to aid you in your own reflections on The Armor of God, I wanted to pose a few questions and provide a few resources to prayerfully consider over the coming days. Our sermon is entitled, “The Belt of Truth”. The main Scripture for the day is Ephesians 6:14a. The other passages are either referenced in the message or provide additional insight for reflection.
(Pick and choose from the many resources and options, which I have tried to make available for your devotional life.)
From the Scriptures
Read and prayerfully reflect upon some or all of these Scriptures. Ask God to shape your life and your church’s life to match the heart of God:
Read or listen to Ephesians 6:14, 1:13, 4:21-24, 5:6-17, Psalms 31:5, 2 Timothy 2:15.
(You can read or listen to all of these passages in a variety of translations at Bible.is.)
From the Creeds and Confessions
Heidelberg Catechism Q112
Westminster Shorter Catechism Q4
From the songs, hymns and spiritual songs of the Church
For Thoughtful Reflection, Prayer, or further Study
Consider these questions:
How important is knowing the truth to you? Why?
How much time and effort are you currently spending in seeking the Truth?
How could you increase this?

The Sermon will be available online on October 16, 2016 at 12:30 pm.
