Wednesday Wisdom 06.14.17

The advantages of afflictions, when the Lord is pleased to employ them for the good of his people, are many and great. Permit me to mention a few of them; and the Lord grant that we may all find those blessed ends answered to ourselves, by the trials he is pleased to appoint us. Afflictions quicken us to prayer. It is a pity it should be so; experience testifies that a lo...

In case you weren't able to be with us for our time together yesterday, here's what you missed: Worship Gatherings Pastor Rob continued our study of the fruit of the Spirit in Galatians 5:22-23. As we looked at the fruit of joy, we saw that God's people are to experience and exhibit joy in this life (Phil. 4:4), and that joy and pain can be experienced simultaneously (...

This Sunday at Cornerstone Church... The fruit of the Spirit is not about “good acts,” but about the very character of God being displayed in the lives of His people. God Himself evidences His glory as believers walk by the Spirit. This week, as we continue our study of the book of Galatians, we will examine how the Spirit displays God’s character of joy...

It is grace at the beginning, grace at the end. So that when you and I come to lie upon our deathbeds, the one thing that should comfort and help and strengthen us there is the thing that helped us at the beginning. Not what we have been, not what we have done, but the grace of God in Jesus Christ our Lord. The Christian life starts with grace, it must continue with grace,...

In case you weren't able to be with us for our time together yesterday, here's what you missed: Worship Gathering During our morning service, Pastor Rob examined the ordinance of baptism. We saw that baptism is reserved for believers (Acts 2:38,41), and that the ceremony itself is powerless to save (Rom. 10:9-10). Baptism should be practiced by immersion, and has a fou...

This Sunday at Cornerstone Church... Our morning service will focus on the two ordinances given to the church: baptism and the Lord's Supper. Both of these ordained celebrations point our attention to the work of God through our Savior, Jesus Christ. While the Lord's Supper provokes meditation upon the torn body and spilled blood of our Savior, baptism pictures our union ...

In case you weren't able to be with us for our time together yesterday, here's what you missed: The Gospel Project We saw in the giving of the Ten Commandments the expression of God's love for His people (Ex. 19:1-6; 20:1-2). Commandments one and two convey the truth that God rightfully deserves first place in our lives (Ex. 20:3-6), while commandments three and four s...

This Sunday at Cornerstone Church... One of the great treasures of redemption is God's provision of His own divine presence and power (Eph. 1:13-14; Gal. 5:16). As we consider Galatians 5:22-23 this Sunday, we will discuss the fact that God has given us His Spirit in order to put on display His very character in this world through the church. God's work of redemption is a...

In case you weren't able to be with us for our time together yesterday, here's what you missed: The Gospel Project We learned from the account of the Israelites' worship of the golden calf that idol-worshipers distort true worship (Ex. 32:1-6), deserve God's condemnation (Ex. 32:7-10), and are in need of a mediator (Ex. 32:11-14). We saw the sin of our own hearts pictu...
