Intentionally Act

  • Recall specifically how the instructions of this passage differ from our current culture. Regarding what is stated about the order of creation and their relationship with God in vs. 7-12: How does your view of men, women, and their roles align with or differ from this passage? Recognize how the culture at large would respond to these verses.
  • Through prayer and meditation on this passage, prepare your mind and soul for the exposition of Scripture this Sunday.
  • Prepare, as you hear the sermon, to be thinking through how you could use this passage in answering cultural objections to Christianity which you may encounter when sharing the gospel.

  • Pray for those leading our corporate gathering this week and for the Holy Spirit’s work as the Word of God is further explained and applied: Dawson Bryant: music; Mark Krystyniak: Elders' prayer & scripture reading; Bret Capranica: teaching.
