SUNDAY GATHERING - MARCH 20TH, 2016
This is a blog that we post weekly to help prepare our hearts to gather together on Sunday mornings. Here, we will post the Scripture that we will be covering and the songs that we will be singing during our gathering together. Here are some ways that you can prepare your heart...
READ through the Scripture that will be preached on Sunday, before the gathering. Use this time to study the text or meditate on a portion of it.
- SING, LISTEN, OR READ through some of the songs that we will be singing together and ask God to deepen our understanding of Him through them. This is a great way to learn new songs before we gather and to ask God for a new perspective on old ones.
- PRAY. Ask God to reveal Himself to you and the church in powerful ways as we gather and lift high His name through speaking, reading, and singing.
BIBLE PASSAGES AND READINGS FOR THIS WEEKS SUNDAY GATHERING
This Sunday, we will continue in our sermon series "The Book Of James - Faith That Works". This weeks sermon is titled "Faith and Prayer". The passage for this week is James 5:13-20.
JAMES 5:13-20 (ESV)
The Prayer of Faith
13Is anyone among you suffering? Let him pray. Is anyone cheerful? Let him sing praise. 14Is anyone among you sick? Let him call for the elders of the church, and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord. 15And the prayer of faith will save the one who is sick, and the Lord will raise him up. And if he has committed sins, he will be forgiven. 16Therefore, confess your sins to one another and pray for one another, that you may be healed. The prayer of a righteous person has great power as it is working. 17Elijah was a man with a nature like ours, and he prayed fervently that it might not rain, and for three years and six months it did not rain on the earth. 18Then he prayed again, and heaven gave rain, and the earth bore its fruit.
19My brothers, if anyone among you wanders from the truth and someone brings him back, 20let him know that whoever brings back a sinner from his wandering will save his soul from death and will cover a multitude of sins.
