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

2nd Samuel – There Was a Long War

Our sermon is entitled There Was a Long War and is taken from 2 Samuel 3:1-5. In this message we will examine the frustration of living in a world where the Kingdom of God progresses at what seems to us to be a snail’s pace. All the while, evil seems so powerful and overwhelming. This passage also reminds us that as we…

2nd Samuel – When the Enemy Comes

Our message is entitled “When the Enemy Comes.” We will examine 2 Samuel 2:12-32, which is a historical narrative and a very action-packed account of a battle. We will take several lessons from this account by looking at the combatants, the nature of the action, kingdom opposition by sinful men, and then we will look at 8 practical ways to deal with…

2nd Samuel – Small Beginnings

Our sermon is entitled “Small Beginnings,” and we will have several good lessons from David’s rise to a throne. The text, 2nd Samuel 2:1-11, is conveniently divided up for us into several sections: 1.) Priorities, 2.) The Kingdom on Earth – with a review of typology and its importance; 3.) Small Beginnings; 4.) Monkey Wrench; and 5.) Lessons for Insignificant Churches. Our…

2nd Samuel – The Death Sermon

Our message is an unusual theme in most church pulpits unless there is a funeral. This is one of the benefits of expository preaching – it forces preachers to handle those topics we would not be quick to choose. In doing so, God equips His people more thoroughly. It also means that we speak frankly of things often not spoken of because…

2nd Samuel – A Liar in the Kingdom

We return to the Old Testament today after an eight week study in Titus. We begin the book of 2nd Samuel, and we will pick up the story of David where we left it off. We will cover verses 1-16. In this first chapter, we pick up in the dark days of Israel’s military loss to the combined Philistine army. During that…

Titus – Works that Adorn Grace

This is our last sermon from the epistle of Titus. In this final message, we cover Titus 3:8-15. Paul finishes with some last instructions that we will examine in these four sections: Fruit of Salvation Avoid Divisive Issues Avoid Divisive People A Healthy and Distinct People of Grace. Our Public reading wasJames 2:14-26 Titus 3:8-15 8 The saying is trustworthy, and I want you…

Titus – Paul’s Gospel of Jesus Christ

Our sermon is entitled “Paul’s Gospel of Jesus Christ.” We will be in Titus 3:1-7. If you would like a head start on section headers, the message breaks down like so: 1. Reminder 2. The Gospel According to Paul a. Need for Salvation b. Source of Salvation c. Ground of Salvation d. Means of Salvation e. Goal of Salvation 3. How Do…

Titus – The Good Fruit of God’s Grace

We continue in our series on the epistle of Titus by examining Titus 2:11-15. We’ll look at God’s grace in three tenses, Past Grace, Present Grace and Future Grace. We will learn that we discover this grace through God’s “Standard Message,” which is that unchanging fidelity to the Word of God. As we have been learning, things that accord with sound doctrine…

Titus – Living in the Community of Grace

Our sermon is entitled “Living in the Community of Grace.” It is from Titus 2:1-10. Paul instructs Titus to teach old and young, men and women, free and slave, to practice what accords with sound doctrine, and he gives several examples. These are the remedies for what the false teachers were preaching. It should be a good lesson for us about how…

5th Sunday Topical – The Command to Disciple Our Children

This Sunday we had a fifth Sunday Topical Sermon entitled “The Command to Disciple Our Children.” It was taken from the classic verse, Deuteronomy 6:4-15. We have not visited this passage in a while, so its time to have a status-checkup of our families.We spend 10 minutes up front though talking about how we Christians are to profit from and utilize passages…
