Preparing for the Gathering - Genesis 16
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.
- Reread Genesis chapter 16. Consider how the idea proposed in verse 2 changed the lives of those involved. Thinking back on your life, do you recall a decision you made which ended up having more negative results than positive?
- Have you made a recent decision, and then looked back to realize that your entire justification for that decision was wrong? Did your improper justification stem from a lack of information or a disregard for the information you did have?
- When have you neglected a role that the Lord has given you? When did you recognize it and what was the result?
- How have the promises of God impacted your life? To what extent are your daily decisions shaped by them? Pray that the Lord would continue to mature and solidify your faith and that you would live in light of his word.
