Preparing for the Gathering - Genesis 19
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.
- Allow God's faithfulness in judgment to work in your heart to turn you from your sin so that you can renew your mind and live a life of holiness.
- Pray for blessing not to be our only motivation and turn us soft to sin in our lives and the lives of others around us. Ask for God to reveal sin and help us to kill it in ourselves and our church through fellowship, discipleship, and discipline within the body of Christ as a means of purifying the body, not for dismemberment but restoration and healing.
- Pray for hearts and minds to be prepared and focused on receiving the Word through preaching so that regardless of distractions the living Word would work in our hearts as a scalpel to remove the cancer of sin and make us more like Christ.
