Preparing for the Gathering - Genesis 15
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.
- The biblical theology found in this text permeates the foundation of our Christian faith today. Pray for hearts and minds to be open to the preaching of the Word and to not be hardened by our presuppositions.
- Praise God who is faithful to his promises. These promises give us hope not only in seeing our savior but also in anticipation of his return. Ask God to increase your faith through a biblical understanding of God's covenant with Abram.
- Discuss with others in the body the significance of a covenant and why it is essential for us as believers to understand the Abrahamic covenant in our culture today in light of Christ bringing the "new covenant".
- 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; Bret Capranica: teaching.
