Preparing for the Gathering - Genesis 49
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 49 again.
- Do you like to know what to expect for the future? How would you respond if some of the news given to Jacob’s sons were given to you?
- How do you see the Lord’s providence play out in this chapter? Has the Lord’s providence become more evident in your own life through the study of the past few chapters of Genesis?
- Confess and repent of any sin that has recently come to light. Take steps to actively grow more thankful for the Lord’s providence in specific aspects of your life.
- 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.
