the presence of God
a cornerstone for our lives
reflecting the Christ
In the first century, some experienced Christ as a stumbling block and some as a cornerstone. The same is true today. May we open our hearts to the life God invites us to know, and may our faith in Christ become a cornerstone for our living.
Some discussion Questions:
1. When have I experienced Jesus as a stumbling block, and when has he been a cornerstone for my living?
2. According to Isaiah 5:1-7, how does God respond, when Israel is not “producing the fruit” they are expected to produceQ?
3. In Philippians 3:4-6, how does Paul compare what he has accomplished to what Christ has accomplished (vs. 7-9)?
