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 – Oaths, Vows and Integrity

Today we look at the fourth example of Jesus’ contrasting of the Pharisees’ version of righteousness with the truth in Matthew 5:33-37. Jesus wipes away devious uses of oaths and vows and gets to the heart of the matter, which is integrity and truth-telling. There is no room for willful deception among God’s people. Our task is to be people of forthright speech,…

Gospel of Matthew – Divorce and Remarriage

Can a Christian divorce a spouse? Under what circumstances may a divorce be pursued? Can a divorced Christian re-marry? Our answer to this depends on how faithfully we have handled the scriptures and applied them to our actions. How do view divorce and remarriage as believers? Our message finds us back to Matthew as we continue our step-by-step walk through the gospel.…

Testimonies of Thanksgiving

Our message is a topical sermon, one that will take advantage of the theme of thankfulness to hear from God’s Word on the topic, as well as four testimonies of those who were thankful despite their trials. We will hear from Charles Spurgeon, Elizabeth Prentiss, Edward Payson, and the Pilgrims. Our passages will be Colossians 3:15-17 and Psalm 100:4-5. We will return…

Gospel of Matthew – Sexual Sin – Part 2

This sermon forms the application of our previous message from Matthew 5:27-30, but we will also visit Romans 13:11-14. We will address some strategies for defeating lust and will draw from many texts throughout the Bible. My prayer is that this message will not merely equip the saints who struggle with lust, but will encourage them that there is a better way…

Gospel of Matthew – Sexual Sin Part 1

We will split our message from Matthew 5:27-30 into 2 sermons, this one entitled Sexual Sin – Part 1 and a second sermon to address some strategies for defeating lust in part 2. Our outline will be: The Purpose of the Law Troubled Hearts on Fire  Sinfulness of Sin and the Love that Conquers  The Sin Problem  Marginalizing Salvation  Sexual sin’s immediate death…

Gospel of Matthew – You have heard it said…

The message for tomorrow is entitled You have heard it said… and will cover the first exposition, murder. We will learn that we are all murderers when we even harbor anger in our heart. And we will learn how to root out that sin from the heart. We will cover Matthew 5:21-26. Our outline is simple: How to Know the Law of God…

Gospel of Matthew – The Law and Christ

Our message is from Matthew 5:17-20 and is a very important and very divisive subject in the church. How do we understand the idea of fulfillment and the role of the law in the Christian’s life? What even IS the law? What is fulfillment? We will tackle this topic tomorrow, I hope you will be blessed. In the coming weeks we will…

Topical – The Need for Ongoing Reformation

Our message will be a topical message from Ephesians 4:1-16 and will focus on how our days reflect the days prior to the reformation in many ways, and how we must press forward in devotion to the Word of God alone, consistently, and reform our lives to it even more carefully than ever. Our public reading is short – it was Luther’s break-through passage,…

Gospel of Matthew – Blessed are the Persecuted

Our message is entitled Persecuted Christians and will come from Matthew 5:2-12. We’ll focus on the last two verses. This is the last of the beatitudes, so Jesus gave us a double saying, and encourages us to press on when we come into conflict with the world. I pray we will be challenged and encouraged by the words of our Lord. The sermon will…
