Preparing our Hearts to Worship
In an effort to help you prepare for the September 29, 2019, Sunday morning corporate worship gathering and to aid you in your own reflections on What God wants us to Believe, Do, and Become. I wanted to pose a few questions and provide a few resources to prayerfully consider over the coming days. Our sermon is entitled, “The grace of self-control”. The main Scriptures for the day are the Titus 2.
(Pick and choose from the many resources and options, which I have tried to make available for your devotional life.)
