New City Catechism–Week 6
Building on the Story—Week 6
Part 1: God, Creation and Fall, Law
Question How can we glorify God?
Answer: By loving him and by obeying his commands and laws.
We are now into our new series and we encourage you to join and pick up a book or download the free app. Each week we will be looking deeper at one question and answer from the “New City Catechism.” We invite you to learn and memorize both the weekly question and answer. Here are some helpful hints to help with memorization:
– Read the question and answer out loud and repeat.
-Put your book in a place where you will see often or carry it with you for the day.
– Write out the question and answers on a card and tape to your bathroom mirror, for example.
– Review the question and answer first thing in the morning and last thing at night.
-Work with someone else also doing Q&A for fun.
Questions to Consider this Week
How would you define glory? What images come to mind when you think of “glory” as is described in scripture?
What do you think it means when scripture tells us “humanity is crowned with glory.” (Psalm 8) How might that change your opinion of what you “think” of others? .
Have you ever considered that you are able to give or take someone’s glory?
How do you glorify God? Is it something you feel is part of your everyday life? Why or why not?
How does your love glorify God? How does your obedience glorify God?
Consider this week how you might glorify God. But do not simply think on it but do it!
