Preparing for the Gathering - Hebrews 1:4-7

The Book of Hebrews square

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.

Intentionally Act

  • Consider what rival voices to Jesus are in your life. What is the source of these voices? Are these authoritative? What has resulted in your life from heeding these voices instead of Jesus? What are the results when you listen to Jesus?
  • Cry out to God for forgiveness for listening to and heeding other voices instead of the voice of Christ. Consider practical ways to heed the voice of Christ in your life this week.
  • Pray that our hearts would bow in worship to the one seated at the right hand of the Majesty. Pray that the church would stop listening to other voices, and heed only the voice of Christ.
  • 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: Joel Conrad: music; Mark Krystyniak: Elders' prayer & scripture reading; Bret Capranica: teaching.
