Preparing for the Gathering - Genesis 10
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.
- Pray that we will appreciate all portions of Scripture, even the genealogies. Ask the Lord to show us his purposes for recording this list of names, to cherish God’s kindness and wisdom in recording this for us, and that our affection for our Lord would grow as a result of this passage being proclaimed this Sunday.
- Thank the Lord for his grace and faithfulness to fulfill the promises he made in the first nine chapters of Genesis. Stand in awe of the wisdom of God in the unfolding of his perfect plans for mankind.
- Search the Scriptures and recall how each of these nations played a role in the history of Israel leading up to the birth of Christ. Consider and meditate on why this is crucial for the unfolding of God’s plan in the Messiah.
- 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.
