Preparing for the Gathering - 1 Cor. 16:19-24
Prepare your heart for our Sunday Morning Gathering by looking through these suggestions that will assist you in making the most of our time together.
You will find tangible suggestions for putting scripture to action in your personal life and in our corporate body, links to the songs we will sing, and lyrics for you to prepare for our corporate singing.
Please see the Preparing for the Sermon post for suggestions in thinking more critically through the passage, meditating more intently on the text, and prayerfully seeking wisdom to deepen your understanding of the passage to be preached this Sunday.
- Ask God to open your eyes, that you may behold wondrous things out of his law (Ps 119:18) as you study these passages.
- How can we look to love and encourage one another more, not just those closet to us but also those within Summit Woods that might seem opposed or at least in strong disagreement with one another?
- Examine your response to these questions and seek the bitter root of sin that might be embedded in your heart if you are unable to respond in love to your friends and especially your enemies.
- How can you grow in your responses to others and how can you walk alongside others? Look for someone to encourage this week through your greeting and someone you can love by partnering with them in the work of the gospel to disciple and build them up.
- Pray for submission to the Word of God. Pray for God to be magnified as we walk in obedience to Him through his Word and the power of the Holy Spirit and that we might make disciples of the nations.
- Click the links below to find the lyrics and recordings of the songs planned for our gathering this Sunday; practice the songs, study the lyrics and sing together.
- 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; Sam Karl: Elders' prayer & scripture reading; Bret Capranica: teaching.
