Daily Devotional Reading in the Westminster Standards

In an earlier post, I talked about the the Daily Westminster, which is a blog that provides daily, integrated readings from the Westminster Confession of Faith, Larger Catechism and Shorter Catechism. In response, a reader has asked if I know of any resource that will email daily devotions based on either the Westminster Standards (WCF, LC, SC) or the Three Forms of Unity (BC, CD, HC).

So far I have not found anything. But if anyone else knows of anything please provide the info in a comment below.

However, there are some sources that I would still promote:

First, there is a daily devotional reading made available at the OPC's website. It does not specifically come from the confessional standards, but is thoroughly biblical and written in accord with the reformed standards.

Second, Starr Meade has put together a resource for family devotions based on the Shorter Catechism, Training Hearts, Teaching Minds.
Here is a summary of some of its features:
  • Aids memorization by devoting six days per question.
  • Explains the catechism in simple language.
  • Provides six different meditations on the main points of each question.
  • Includes key Scripture readings.
  • Takes just a few minutes each day, allowing time for discussion and review.
The format is to spend six days on one catechism question. This provides six days to memorize the question, and for each day, there is a short devotion that is based on the same question. This is a great resource to use individually or as a family.
