Preparing for the Gathering - Revelation 1:1-3November 15, 2023 Preparing for Sunday
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.
- What do you know about the Apostle John? What does this verse tell us? What do you know about his life from the New Testament? What other book of the Bible did he write?
- What three things did John testify to?
- Read Revelation 1:19. What three things make up the content of this book?
- If you read the whole book this week, how would you divide the chapters into the three categories given in Revelation 1:19 to make an outline of the book? (If you have not read the whole book, take some time to skim through and try to think about its contents in these three categories)
- 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.
