Preparing for the Gathering - Mark 2:14-17

SWBC Pulpit 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

  • Read Mark 2:14-17 again.
  • Consider the affections and actions of Christ toward the most notorious of sinners in this passage. Consider how you can be more like Jesus in your relationships with unbelievers.
  • Who do you know in a sphere of your life that would be a modern day “tax collector and sinner”? How can you share the gospel with them in light of this passage? Make a plan to actually do this.
  • 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; Dalton Vansell: teaching.
