Sunday Sermons

At Cornerstone, the sermons are primarily expository in nature. We spend most of our time stepping through a section or book of the Bible verse by verse, section by section, and occasionally we will preach on a theme. The elders strive to make each sermon a Christ centered, church building, Gospel proclaiming, truth driven, biblically grounded, proclamation for the purpose of God glorifying transformation.

To interpret and apply his text in accordance with its real meaning, is one of the preacher’s most sacred duties.John Broadus, On the Preparation and Delivery of Sermons

Here we witness Jesus’ teaching and training of the disciples as he sends them out to sea alone. We will learn about the role of trials and what faith is. Our outline is: I.

In this message we will look again to the Gospel of Matthew, our message is entitled, “Jesus Satisfies the Hungry.” It will be drawn from Matthew 14:13-21.

Gospel of Matthew – Martyrdom of John the Baptist

In Matthew 14:1-12 we encounter a sad story. Here Matthew relates how John the Baptist met his end at the hands of Herod Antipas and Herodias, two very wicked people who serve as powerful pictures of the opposition to the Word of God. John’s life tracks very closely to the life of Jesus, and the story’s position in the gospel marks a…

Gospel of Matthew – Rejection of Jesus

In Matthew 13:53-58, we discover that Jesus is rejected, not merely by the religious leaders of his day, but by his home town. They couldn’t believe that Jesus was who He said, after all, he was the carpenter’s son they all knew since he was a kid. Bu that unbelief had an effect. It limited the Lord’s work in their midst. This…

Gospel of Matthew – How Much is Jesus Worth?

Our message is from the Gospel of Matthew. It is entitled “How Much is Jesus Worth?” and comes from Matthew 13:44-52. In this message, we hear some more parables, but this time there is a single line or warning that will form a very fiery image in our minds of Hell. I will dwell on that for a while. Hell is not…

Gospel of Matthew – Weeds, Mustard and Leaven

Our lesson is entitled “Weeds, Mustard and Leaven.” I will link these parables together and with our parable of the sower from last week, they form a cohesive and themed unit. This means the theme might not be exactly what we have all learned over the years. I think you will see the text must govern our interpretation, and that will lead…

Gospel of Matthew – The Sower and the Seed

Today we enter a new section of Matthew’s gospel. We will study “The Sower and the Seed” from Matthew 13:1-23. We will find that the seed is always the same Word of God that goes out from the Lord, but the condition of the soil on which is falls is the variable that matters. Public reading: Isaiah 6:8-13; Benediction: Psalm 5:11 Matthew…

Gospel of Matthew – Dissecting the Heart of Man

Our message is a continuation of our study of the Gospel of Matthew, it is entitled, “Dissecting the Heart of Man” from Matthew 12:33-37. In this message, we will look at what the inward man is like – are we spirit? Soul? Spirit and soul? And how does it all relate to the body? How do we know? Jesus teaches us very…
