Sunday, October 8
We build our lives by the decisions we make. Whether we acknowledge it or not, we all have a cornerstone in our lives – the core set of values upon which be base the decisions of our life.
Pastor Rob challenges us to reflect on what it means for Jesus to be the cornerstone of our life and how we align ourselves to Christ’s teachings and grace. Where do you see a Sunday to Monday connection, where you sense your life aligning with God’s purposes? Where do you see a Sunday to Monday gap, where you life is not aligned with Christ?
Ultimately the parable that Jesus — a harsh one indeed (Matthew 21:33-46) — reveals that Christ is the cornerstone independent of our actions. Even when we do not get it right, this does not change that the cosmos is oriented around Jesus. The brings with it the reality of justice but also the promise of mercy in our lives.
