Wednesday Wisdom 03.28.18

To see the King of heaven fall In anguish to His knees, The Light and Hope of all the world Now overwhelmed with grief. What nameless horrors must He see, To cry out in the garden: "Oh, take this cup away from me Yet not my will but Yours, Yet not my will but Yours."To know each friend will fall away, And heaven's voice be still, For hell to have its vengeful day Upon Gol...

This Sunday at Cornerstone Church... It's easy to get caught up in the mundane elements of life. We are constantly dealing with the demands of our schedule and reacting to the difficulties around us. As this happens, we can lose sight of the larger plan of God in history. Similarly, as we read the bible, we can lose sight of how God has sovereignly orchestrated the flow o...

Q. How does Christ's return "to judge the living and the dead" comfort you? A. In all my distress and persecution I turn my eyes to the heavens and confidently await as judge the very One who has already stood trial in my place before God and so has removed the whole curse from me. All His enemies and mine He will condemn to everlasting punishment: but me and all His chose...

This Sunday at Cornerstone Church... One of the privileges of the Christian life is an ever deepening intimacy with our Savior. It was the pursuit of Paul to know Jesus Christ more personally, more victoriously, more experientially, and to know Him eternally. Of all our pursuits in this life, this deepening relationship with Jesus Christ should be foremost. Join us as we ...

"Jesus, I my cross have taken, all to leave and follow Thee.Destitute, despised, forsaken, Thou from hence my all shall be.Perish every fond ambition, all I've sought or hoped or known.Yet how rich is my condition! God and Heaven are still mine own. Let the world despise and leave me, they have left my Savior, too.Human hearts and looks deceive me; Thou art not, like them...

This Sunday at Cornerstone Church... Our worship in the word will focus on the two ordinances given to the church: baptism and the Lord's Supper. These observances unite us together in recognition of the saving work of God through the gospel of Jesus Christ.

"Before the charge 'know thyself,' ought to come the far greater charge, 'know thy God.' But, though the study of the being and character of God is a duty which we dare not disregard, still, let us not be unmindful of the fact that we vile, short-sighted worms should approach the solemn task of studying God with feelings of humility and awe. God is found of the lowly, but ...

This Sunday at Cornerstone Church... Paul lays out a value system that is much different than our preconceived ideas. While traditional, societal, and religious thinking places high value on religious pedigree, adherence, and piety, the gospel tells us that the most valuable treasure is knowing Christ and being united to Him. Anything that diminishes our treasuring Christ...

This Sunday at Cornerstone Church... True joy is found in our God who has created, sustained, and saved us. But through the course of our lives, our attention can sometimes be divided. At the beginning of Philippians 3, Paul helps us understand that we can forget about the joy-sustaining relationship we have with God. There are opponents of the truth who try to divert our...

"I have been examining myself and looking back upon my past life, but I can find nothing in myself and nothing in all my past services to recommend me at the bar of Jehovah. Christ is my all. His blood is my only hope of acceptance...My pains are great; but, blessed be God, they are not eternal. I long to be in heaven." - Lemuel Haynes, quoted by Timothy Mather Cooley,Sket...
