Preparing for the Gathering - Genesis 22
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.
- Consider the example of Abraham in this chapter. What does his example teach us concerning how we should live? How should this shape your day to day living?
- Pray that we would be a people who have faith like Abraham’s demonstrated in this chapter.
- Allow your eyes to be drawn to the substitutionary sacrifice of Christ by the substitutionary sacrifice of the ram in v. 13. How should you respond to the greatest sacrifice?
- Pray that we would rightly understand and apply God’s Word as a result of the Spirit of God using the preaching of God’s Word.
