Friday First - He Cares for You

This week is the mid point of our curriculum year: A Place to Heal. We certainly hope you’ve been encouraged and uplifted. But more than that, we hope you’ve been challenged to go to work and look outward. What is your place in the role of creating an atmosphere of warmth, openness, compassion, and love? Each one of us plays a part in the mission at Cornerstone.

Sunday’s lesson will be based out of Matthew 12.15-21. If we are going to be the place where people find healing, we’re going to have to take these verses to heart.  We must remember who we are, i.e., redeemed sinners. We must remember our mission, i.e., proclaiming the good news of Jesus who provides restoration, redemption, and rest. If we’re going to be a place to heal, we must put our words into action and love the way Jesus did. Matthew 12.15-21 shows us how to follow in our Lord’s footsteps.

We must become people of:
  • Compassion
  • Humility
  • Encouragement

As you prepare for worship on Sunday, please give consideration to these questions:
  1. What is so fascinating about Jesus’ actions in Matthew 12.15, especially after reading v. 14?
  2. What does Matthew 12.15 tell us about God? What is the heart of God toward those who suffer? See Psalm 113.5-9.
  3. What part of Jesus’ ministry demonstrated the ultimate in humility?
  4. What can we learn from Ecclesiastes 9.17?
  5. How can you improve on becoming a person of encouragement?
