Preparing for the Gathering - Revelation 3:1-6February 7, 2024 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 two things does verse 2 call the church in Sardis to do?
- What two actions should follow remembering according to verse 3?
- Other passages talk about coming as a thief in the night (Matthew 24:42-44, 2 Peter 3:10, 1 Thess. 5:2, Revelation 16:15, etc.) Investigate some of these. What color do these passages add to Revelation 3:3?
- What other mentions of the book of life are made in Revelation? How do those references shape your understanding of this promise?
- Look up Luke 12:8-9 and compare it to verse 5. What does this tell you about those who overcome?
- 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; Terry Engling: elder prayer & scripture reading; Bret Capranica: teaching.
