For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also." (Matthew 6:19–21) This Sun...

"According to Jesus, God does exercise His sovereignty in very minute events - even the life and death of an almost worthless sparrow. And Jesus' whole point is: If God so exercises His sovereignty in regard to sparrows, most certainly He will exercise it in regard to His children. While it is certainly true that God’s love for us does not protect us from pain and so...

"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...

This Sunday at Cornerstone Church... Our study of Galatians will move into chapter six, but the subject matter will not change. In these early verses of the final chapter, Paul describes an important application of Christian freedom: God's people have been freed to love one another (Gal. 5:1, 6, 13), and that love is demonstrated powerfully as we bear one another's burden...

"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.

"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...
