Here is the Guide for this Sunday’s Online Worship Experience

BEFORE YOU BEGIN

Worshiping God requires soul preparation. Therefore, prepare yourself well. Sleep early and wake up early. Avoid staying up late on a Saturday night. Dedicate your whole being to the Lord. In the morning, take a bath and dress up, as if you are going to meet someone special. Prepare the room where you will be watching. If possible, cast it on the largest TV screen. Make sure there are no distractions. Come into the presence of the Lord with thanksgiving in your heart. Don’t slouch in bed or on your sofa. Be ready to worship Him fully with your whole being. If appropriate, stand up and raise your hands! You can also dance if you like.
 

SOUL PREPARATION (30 MINUTES)

Lord, sometimes we just lose faith in love. We’ve hard to care for others but it seems that others don’t care about us. So, why bother, Lord? Who cares if no one cares? We’re tired of giving and not receiving. People are just interested in themselves. Showing love is just an exercise in futility. Nothing comes out of it. Nada. But, Lord, when we reflect on it, we realize this is not what you want from us. You want us to live in love even when others do not love us in return. We are created in and for love. Teach us, Lord, about love and how to love as You love us. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
 

Lectio Divina

Read the passage below slowly and meditatively at least three times. Ask God to direct your eyes to a word, phrase, or sentence that He wants to use to speak to you. Then, share with one another the word, phrase, or sentence that the Lord has led you to focus on. Optional: You can also share why that word, phrase, or sentence impacted you.
 

Read this Passage – 1 Corinthians 12:31b-13:13

Fellowship in the presence of the Lord (eating together)

Prepare some food and drink and eat together in the presence of the Lord. Catch up with each other. Do some “soul talk.” Encourage one another in the Lord. Don’t forget to pray for each other at the end of your fellowship and conversation. Remember these Scriptures:
 
“So then, my brothers and sisters, when you gather to eat, you should all eat together.” (1 Cor 11:33)
 
They broke bread in their homes and ate together with glad and sincere hearts, praising God, and enjoying the favor of all the people. And the Lord added to their number daily those who were being saved. (Acts 2:46b-47)
 

Silence and Solitude

Spend a few minutes in silence and solitude as you prepare your soul to encounter God through His word today. Remember, there will be a five-minute countdown before the service begins. This a good time to be quiet.
