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 – 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 – Wolves in Sheep’s Clothing Part 2

We continue last week’s message from Matthew 7:15-23 with the application portion of the sermon. We’ll look at the following regarding wolves in sheep’s clothing: Outline: The Method of Identification: Fruit Inspection What they do – they ravenously devour.

Gospel of Matthew – Wolves in Sheep’s Clothing Part 1

Gospel of Matthew – Which Way Will you Go?

We will hear from Jesus in Matthew 7:13-14 as we learn the nature of “the way.” Entering through the narrow gate and walking the path of life in the Kingdom is demanding but rewarding. Choices The Entry Point The Way Companions Destination. Public reading: Psalm 1; Benediction: Romans 15:13 Matthew 7:13-14 13 “Enter by the narrow gate. For the gate is wide and…

Gospel of Matthew – Ask, Seek, Knock

Here in Matthew 7:7-12 we learn some principles of prayer that should encourage us to be more frequent in praying, and set our expectations properly. The Connection The Promise: Ask, Pray, Get Objections A. Some say prayer is inappropriate, groveling and unseemly.  B. Some say prayer is simply unnecessary.  C. Some say prayer does not work, it is unproductive.  The Result of…

Gospel of Matthew – Don’t You Judge Me!

You hear a lot of people say “Don’t judge me!” What they often mean is “leave me alone in my sin, you are making me feel bad, affirm me!” But what Christians must understand is what Jesus means when He commands us to “Judge not, lest you be judged.” It is clearly not a ban on discerning right from wrong, as the very next…

Gospel of Matthew – Anxiety and Providence

We continue with our Gospel of Matthew study with a section on Anxiety and Providence from Matthew 6:25-34. This is a challenging and comforting passage. Challenging to those of us who are prone to worry, and comforting for those who are convicted of the wrongness of worry. The general thrust of the passage leads us naturally to speak of God’s providence, and that’s the angle we will take.…

Gospel of Matthew – Treasures in Heaven

Our message is entitled, Gospel of Matthew – Treasures in Heaven, and we will cover Matthew 6:19-34, though we will focus on the first half of the passage this week, and next week we’ll tackle the sin of anxiety. Our message will look at materialism, and the either/or statements Jesus makes about what our relationship to the world says about the condition of our…
