Preparing for the Gathering - Genesis 37
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 37.
- What all from this chapter led to Joseph’s brothers’ anger against him? Describe what his brothers planned and what they actually executed. Reflect on the brothers’ justification of such drastic sin. Describe a sin that you have justified against someone else.
- Consider the Israelites as they were reading this, just coming out of slavery in Egypt. How does this passage, in this context point you to God’s sovereignty over all things?
- 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.
