Preparing for the Gathering - Ephesians 5:18
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 the Lord to use the preaching of his Word to bring clarity to how we understand this crucial work of the filling of the Holy Spirit. Seek to dig into these passages and others that speak of the work of the Holy Spirit. Seek to meditate on and apply what you learn through careful study.
- Pray that God would do this work of the Spirit among us as we gather this Sunday. Contemplate how you can more faithfully carry out the actions in vv. 19-21 this Sunday and seek to intentionally act during the gathering in obedience to God’s Word.
- 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; Adam Naler: Elders' prayer & scripture reading; Brett Harris: teaching.
