Think of all the times in Jesus’ ministry when he healed sick bodies. Think of the early ministry of the apostles in the power of the Spirit performing miracles signs and wonders in this physical world. All of these miracles reveals that Jesus it the King over the Kingdom, a Kingdom that will culminate in a new heaven and a new earth. We have a physical future!
And yet as that great Day approaches, we press on. We desire to see individual people believe in the resurrected Christ. We desire the justice, joy, and healing of the kingdom to impact our lives, church, and world. We pray that God’s kingdom would come. So, as you prepare you heart for communion this Sunday, remember the King, treasure his Kingdom, and rejoice in the fact that the Kingdom has been prepared for the little, broken, weak and willing children who run into the Father’s arms.
Ministry Opportunity–Safe Families for Children: On Sunday July 28th we will have a representative, Mirinda Cole, form Safe Families and Children present to us a possible ministry opportunity. She would like you to considering helping just one child in need in this area. Would you be willing to open up your home to a child in crisis?
Support “Marion Cares” with back-to-school supplies: Cornerstone Church is once again partnering with Marion Cares to provide backpacks with school supplies for needy students in the Marion school district. We will need to have the backpacks returned on or before July 28th.
I look forward to worshiping with you Sunday.
