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

The Glorious Mission of Marriage

Stirred by the recent joyful outbreak of weddings in our congregation, this topical sermon is very timely. We look at the Glorious Mission of Marriage and visit two classic passages, Genesis 2:15-25, and Ephesians 5:22-33. We learn why marriage is tied to great things, indeed the greatest purpose of all creation – the redemption of…

2nd Samuel – The Plan that Counts

Our sermon is entitled The Plan that Counts and is taken from 2 Samuel 17. Here we find a chapter of tense political maneuvering and a bit of a spy story as Hushai and Ahithophel each give their counsel to the usurper, Absalom. We will learn some things about the certainty of God’s plans, and while its a very simple lesson we…

2nd Samuel – Friends and Traitors

Our sermon is entitled Friends and Traitors and comes from 2 Samuel 16:15-23. We will see Hushai again, doing what David sent him to do, and then we’ll witness a gross and wicked act by Ahithophel against God and David. Ahithophel is the Judas of the Old Testament. Our themes will center on betrayal and the one who does not betray. We…

Psalm 5

This message marks another quick departure from the 2 Samuel, although we will be talking at length about David.  Here we work throughPsalm 5.  This psalm is a personal lament by David, and we will spend time looking at David’s actions words in the face of the difficulties before him. Our Public reading wasRomans 3:9-25a; Our benediction was1 Corinthians 15:58.

2nd Samuel – A Couple of Encounters on the Way

Our message comes from 2 Samuel 16:1-14. Here we find David still fleeing from Jerusalem ahead of his usurping Son, Absalom. When we last were with David, he met some friends along the way. This time, he will meet some enemies. It is largely a narrative that moves the story along and provides groundwork for David’s thoughts and actions later on in…

Unto Us a Child is Born

Our text is a single verse, Isaiah 9:6. Here we will investigate the glorious names of Christ as they are attributed to Jesus 700 years before his birth. We will be treated to a number of scriptures supporting the text. Our sermon is divided up into 11 brief points: To Us Given A Child is born A Son Government on His Shoulders…

2nd Samuel – David’s Retreat and the Pain of Betrayal

Our text is 2 Samuel 15:13-37. We will witness a moving section of scripture rich with prophetic and typological foreshadowings as King David and his loyal followers must flee Jerusalem upon hearing of Absalom’s revolt. There is much here that causes us to anticipate the suffering of our Lord Jesus. And because betrayal is one of the most difficult of offenses to…
