Preparing for the Gathering - Genesis 36
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.
- Read Genesis 36 again. Consider the faithfulness of God to his people on display in this chapter.
- Consider the wisdom of God in his providence to orchestrate these events for his people’s good.
- Consider the results of Esau’s folly on display in this chapter. What repentance should occur in your life so that you do not follow his example?
- Would you be happy to have what Esau had: good land, family, physical prosperity (wealth, livestock, power), and even a kingdom? Why is this bankrupt? Search your heart for the sinful desires for these things. What should you pursue instead?
- 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; Brett Harris: Elders' prayer & scripture reading; Bret Capranica: teaching.
