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 – The Kindness of the King

Our sermon this week is taken from 2 Samuel 9. We will learn of The Kindness of the King. Since the Old Testament is ultimately about Jesus, we often talk of Christ in the Old Testament shadows. Today’s lesson is, essentially, a Christ-centered gospel proclamation. 2 Samuel 9 is about King David and the lame Mephibosheth. It is also about King Jesus…

2nd Samuel – Kingdom Victories

This Lord’s Day sermon is entitled Kingdom Victories and we’ll cover the whole of 2 Samuel 8. This chapter ends a major division in the book of Samuel. We will have a bit of a new thematic flavor as we move into the coming chapters. Here we find a collection of battle reports and names of officials. It might be easy to skip over…

2nd Samuel – Redeemed, Preserved, and Privileged

Our message is entitled, Redeemed, Preserved, and Privileged. We will cover 2 Samuel 7:18-29. Here we find David’s response to God’s gracious refusal. David had desired to honor God by building a house for the Ark of God, a very good desire indeed. But God has other plans, plans that knock David’s socks off, so to speak. His response is prayer and praise.…

2nd Samuel – A Palace for God

In this message we look at 2 Samuel 7:1-17. This is typically considered the “Davidic Covenant” and is a very important passage in the history of God’s redemption of sinners. We will not go very deep into the theological-covenantal themes, but rather will remain in the immediate historical and application level of the text because there is plenty of good immediate application for…

2nd Samuel – The Happiest People on Earth

We continue where we left off and study 2 Samuel 6:12-23. Here we discover that David’s second attempt to bring back the Ark of God to Jerusalem is successful, and there is much reason to rejoice. But not everyone is happy. Some are more concerned about outward appearances and keeping up their stuffy dignity. And David is married to her. Let us learn…

2nd Samuel – Curing a Casual Attitude Toward God

Our sermon this week will cover the first half of 2 Samuel 6,verses 1-11. We will come along with all Israel on a grand day of festivities and joy in Israel as the Ark of the Covenant is brought out from obscurity. David rightly seeks to put God in the center of national life. And we’ll find out the terrible consequences that…

2nd Samuel – Bursting Waters and Dumb Idols

We come now to a pair of battle vignettes and there is much to be learned. We will be in 2 Samuel 5:17-25. We’ll follow the Philistine response to the news of David’s kingship, and David’s response to news of the enemy’s action. It will show us the power and glory of God in rich imagery and we will marvel together how…

5th Sunday Topical – The Importance of Preaching and How to Gain From It

Its a five Sunday month. That means we take a planned break from our typical series and enjoy a topical sermon. Today’s sermon is entitled Getting the Most of Preaching (though I changed the post title for the blog). It features an introduction establishing the preeminence of preaching in the congregation, and then a practical set of tips for getting the most…

2nd Samuel – Thy Kingdom Come

Our sermon for today is taken from 2 Samuel 5:1-5. Finally, after all of this time, David is crowned King of all Israel. We will examine four characteristics of David’s Kingdom as revealed in our text, and will then learn what sort of response is appropriate for such a king as David. Our public reading was John 10:1-18. 2 Samuel 5:1-5 5:1 Then…
