Preparing for the Gathering - Jeremiah 31
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.
- In light of the repentance of Ephraim seen in verses 18-20, what can you learn about the weight and significance of sin? Are there areas of sin you are holding onto in you life? Confess and repent of these sins.
- Who is one person in your life that may not be under the new covenant as a follower of Christ? How do the consequences of being outside this covenant and the joys found within it lead you to grow in evangelism?
- How can you take practical steps this week toward sharing the gospel with this one person?
- Think about the peace that is found in the promises of the new covenant. How can you grow in your eternal perspective to battle the worries and fears of this world?
- 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.
