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.

Intentionally Act

  • Read the passage for the sermon again, 1 Thessalonians 5:23-24.
  • How would the promise of v. 24 bring comfort particularly to the Thessalonians? How does it bring comfort to you?
  • What do these verses contribute to your being equipped to disciple others? Consider specific and intentional ways you can apply this in a discipleship context.
  • How will these verses impact your thinking, affections, and living?
  • What should you strive after in light of v. 23? What comfort should you have in light of v. 24?
  • 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; Mark Krystyniak: Elders' prayer & scripture reading; Bret Capranica: teaching.
