Today in Worship – we continue with Stephen’s speech before the Jewish court, the Sanhedrin, giving a defense that their rejection of Jesus as Messiah is par for God’s people throughout the centuries. Having shown that the Gospel does not deny the authority of God’s Law given through Moses, so also Jesus does not destroy, but fulfills the function of the Temple. In Acts 7:35-53 we see our need for true worship.
Cornerstone Missionaries Tim & Nicole Fox and their children Justin and Emily will be prayed for this morning. Tim and Nicole have served with Wycliffe Bible Translators since 1999 (Nicole) and 2003 (Tim). Tim served in Papua New Guinea as an avionics technician, while Nicole taught in two different international schools, one in Thailand and one in Papua New Guinea. They are currently serving at the JAARS Center in Waxhaw, NC where Tim works as the Waxhaw Aviation Safety Manager. Tim and Nicole will be visiting Cornerstone on November 5th.
