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

Gospel of Matthew – Lord of the Harvest

Our sermon, “Lord of the Harvest” comes from Matthew 9:35-10:4. Here we meet the entire band of disciples for the first time, see that they are commissioned to go with Jesus on His mission to call in the lost sheep, and will learn what that mission requires of us. We will also have a strong call to believe the good news of…

Gospel of Matthew – Imperfect, Desperate Faith

Here we find the compassion of Jesus directed at even those of us who don’t exercise our faith the right way, but have mixed faith or weak faith.

Gospel of Matthew – Casting Out Demons

We encounter a demoniac, he is uncontrollable by any man, he is violent. He is no match for Jesus. Here in Matthew 8:28-34 and Mark 5:1-20 we learn what this is all about, it is an immensely interesting story. We will visit Matthew’s short version (theologians believe he was trying to get it all on one scroll!) and Mark’s longer detailed version.…

Gospel of Matthew – Responding in Obedience

After half a year, we come to the end of the Sermon on the Mount. Here in Matthew 7:24-29 Jesus doesn’t just politely close his message, but lays down a challenge. Will we be doers, or hearers only. This is unheard of preaching in His time, for no one preaches with the authority Jesus assumes. Let us be ready for some examples…

Gospel of Matthew – Which Way Will you Go?
