Preparing for the Gathering - Genesis 17
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.
- After reading through the text again, and having meditated on the previous questions, how do you respond to God daily in his commands?
Why do you respond in unbelief? Examine your heart to see what causes this unbelief, and see what it reflects on your view of God versus your view of self?
- Determine how you elevate yourself over God in unbelief and repent, seeking to see him in his glorious, powerful, perfect, and loving covenant-keeping ways.
Proclaim his goodness, rejoice in his love, share the good news with unbelievers.
- Encourage fellow believers here in the church with God's faithfulness in your life and how he is growing your faith in him. Help others to see God's work in their lives as well, through all of life.
- 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.
