Preparing for the Gathering - OT Giving
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.
- Re-read the passages given in the previous post.
- Reflect on Paul's desire for the Corinthian church and explain how that aligns with God's character in the Old and New Testament in relationship to our giving and worship of Him.
- Pray for our body to gain a right understanding of God concerning giving, not for the purpose of some giving campaign, but for our hearts to deepen in their knowledge of who God is and who we are as His created beings, fallen and redeemed.
- Consider how this attitude of giving based on the Old Testament would change your heart in daily matters of life, in worship, caring for one another in the church, and as you go out among the 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.
- 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; Brett Harris: Elders' prayer & scripture reading; Bret Capranica: teaching.
