Preparing for the Gathering - Genesis 43
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 chapter 43 again.
- Are there any disconnected, unreconciled, or bitter relationships in your life? Does any portion of this passage speak to that? How does the pervasive providence of God in this section help you think about those relationships?
- Did the Lord bring any conviction regarding favoritism or self-preservation while studying this passage? Confess and forsake that sin.
- Ask the Lord to illuminate this passage this coming Lord’s day and to continue our sanctification.
- 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; Sam Karl: Elders' prayer & scripture reading; Bret Capranica: teaching.
