Wednesday Wisdom 08.30.17

"Failure to deal with the presence of sin can often be traced back to spiritual amnesia – forgetting our new, true, real identity. As a believer, I am someone who has been delivered from the dominion of sin and who therefore is free and motivated to fight against the remnants of sin in my heart. You must know, rest in, think through, and act upon your new identity &n...

"Sin is cosmic treason. Sin is treason against a perfectly pure Sovereign. It is an act of supreme ingratitude toward the One to whom we owe everything, to the One who has given us life itself. Have you ever considered the deeper implications of the slightest sin, of the most minute peccadillo? What are we saying to our Creator when we disobey Him at the slightest point? W...

This Sunday at Cornerstone Church... We will continue our study through the book of Galatians, finishing chapter five. We will see that the life granted to us by the Spirit is not a life of bondage, but of liberty. We will also consider how walking in harmony with the Spirit eliminates our natural tendency toward being divisive with those who think differently than we do....

"And a truly humble man is sensible of the small extent of his own knowledge, and the great extent of his ignorance, and of the small extent of his understanding as compared with the understanding of God. He is sensible of his weakness; how little his strength is, and how little he is able to do. He is sensible of his natural distance from God; of his dependence on Him; of...

Sunday Review 08.13.17

In case you weren't able to be with us for our time together yesterday, here's what you missed: Worship Gatherings Pastor Rob finished our study through the fruit of the Spirit with a focus on self-control. We saw that God warns against a lack of self-control (Prov. 25:28), and that He directs us to fight against our passions (1 Pet. 2:11). But we also saw that as we g...

This Sunday at Cornerstone Church... The bible makes it clear that passions are continually waging war against our souls. Those passions, while taking on different forms from person to person, will rule our minds if we do not surrender our will to God. Many strategies have been concocted to ward off vices, but the truth is that human strategies are only temporal, ineffect...

"Help me to be in reality before Thee as in appearance I am before men, to be religious before I profess religion, to leave the world before I enter the church, to set my affections on things above, to shun forbidden follies and vanities, to be a dispenser as well as a partaker of grace, to be prepared to bear evil as well as to do good. O God, make me worthy of this calli...

This Sunday at Cornerstone Church... We will be continuing our study of the fruit of the Spirit in Galatians 5. Our focus will be upon our Father's character of meekness.

This attracti...

"What's actually true is that when I come to the Lord after I've blown it, I've only one argument to make. It’s not the argument of the difficulty of the environment that I am in. It’s not the argument of the difficult people that I’m near. It’s not the argument of good intentions that were thwarted in some way. No, I have only one argument. It's ri...

In case you weren't able to be with us for our time together yesterday, here's what you missed: Worship Gatherings Pastor Bill reminded us that God's people are to called to remain steadfast in the faith (1 Cor. 15:58) in light of the opposition that we will face in the world (1 Pet. 5:8-9). But that spiritual strength comes only through God Himself (Psalm 62:2), and i...
