Here is a short outline of Family Worship. Everyone, even singles and those without kids or kids at home, can and should do this!
Pray- specifically for the Lord to use His word on you and those with you.
Sing- pick a song and play it! Sing with it! Pick something that has some depth.
Read Scripture- and talk about it in three steps
o Summarize the passage.
o What did this mean to those who are in the passage and those who first read it?
o ONLY AFTER Observation and interpretation have been done should you ask, What does this mean to me?
· Remember the Gospel
o Exalt Jesus in your application.
Pray again- Thank God for His word.
· Don’t be long.
o 5-15 minutes.
· Ask questions and don’t be afraid to say, I don’t know.
o Then do research and find out the answer.
· Be natural.
o Some days will be easier than others.
o Keep your head up and be as consistent.
· Tailor it to you and your family.
o For young kids use a kids bible
§ Jesus Storybook Bible for example
o Use a good bible translation
§ CSB for example.
· Men should lead if possible.
o Be the spiritual leaders of the family God has called you to be.
o It’s ok to not be perfect, point everyone to Jesus!
