Friday First - Lord, Help Me See

As we begin the new month, I could not think of a better time or theme to focus on than Seeing Through the Eyes of Jesus. This Sunday is the first without COVID-19 protocols and judging from our experience Tuesday evening, the excitement and joy was palatable. Things like small group studies, get togethers, and other events where we interact are beginning to pick up again. It’s great and I encourage you all to get more involved. Now that things are beginning to ramp back up…

What is your plan to keep the spiritual in its proper place?

There are a number of reasons why this is important to think about, but one of them is found in the text we’ll consider Sunday: the harvest is abundant, but the workers are few, Matthew 9.37. More than ever, Cornerstone needs to be focused on the harvest. By God’s providence and our faith, this congregation is reaching more people locally than anytime previous in its history. And with that, it is important to continue to rally to the call to fill up the building with changed hearts. There is so much to be excited about … and so much good to anticipate.

Matthew 9.35-38 contains a simple message. In it we will learn to:
  • See
  • Care
  • Pray

As you prepare for worship on Sunday, please give consideration to these questions:
  1. When we begin to see through the eyes of Jesus, how will we see those in the world?
  2. What does it mean to you to be lost without a shepherd?
  3. What are some things you are presently doing to generate a heart of compassion? 
  4. Why is it so important to look out and see the potential (instead of the trouble) that lays before us?
  5. What is God’s intention behind instructing us to pray for more workers?
