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

Don’t Be Surprised, Suffering Begins with Us

1 Peter 4:12-19 – Peter once again encourages suffering saints to persevere in well doing while suffering, even fiery trials, to expect such testing because it begins with God’s people. Peter is beginning to close out his epistle and is emphasizing again the thoughts of his opening words, but driving it home under the urgency of the impending “end of all things”.…

Characteristics of Faithful Elders

1 Peter 5:1-4 – When one thinks of the biblical qualifications for elders, they usually go to 1 Timothy 3, or Titus 1. Those are indeed important passages on the subject. However, Peter, who spent a lot of time learning from Jesus about being a good shepherd, also tells us much on this topic in the last chapter of his first epistle.…

Urgent! The End of All Things Means…

1 Peter 4:7-11 – Because “the end of all things is at hand”, we are to be self controlled and sober minded, hospitable, and servant hearted. So the first question we need to address is – What is this end of all things? Second, we should get a sense of why it should motivate us to do anything. We will hope to…

Antithetical Thinking, Living, and Dying

1 Peter 4:1-6 – As Peter calls his readers to be different in their thinking and different in their living from the world in which they live, so also are we to be different. Pastor Lee highlights the antithesis of Peter’s instructions and applies it to our lives today. 1 Peter 4:1-6 4:1 Since therefore Christ suffered in the flesh, arm yourselves with…

Be Patient, for the Waters Will Not Prevail

1 Peter 3:18-22 – Peter encourages his readers to be patient during the trials pressing in on them. He gives two reasons, Jesus’ suffering as a model for patience, and the hope of sure deliverance in the Ark of Christ. This passage is one of the most difficult verses in all of the new testament, many errors arise from misunderstanding this text.…

Five Characteristics of the Church

1 Peter 3:8-12 – Peter gives characteristics of a healthy church that we are to all receive and obey. These are not merely all we are to possess, but Peter singles these out as chief. Indeed if you compiled a list of all the character traits of the church we would find that all of them nicely fall under these five. We…

Testifying to the Gospel as a Husband

1 Peter 3:7 – Pastor Lee discusses specific instructions to husbands which are given to help them testify to the power of the Gospel to the world around them. 1 Peter 3:7 7 Likewise, husbands, live with your wives in an understanding way, showing honor to the woman as the weaker vessel, since they are heirs with you of the grace of life,…

The Godly Wife

1 Peter 3:1-6 – Peter speaks to wives to be subject to their husbands as an expression of the Gospel of Jesus Christ, which takes a mighty woman of strength and faith. Contrary to the world’s ways of feminism and women who are bawdy and base, Peter’s words are a call to dignified womanhood. 1 Peter 3:1-6 3:1 Likewise, wives, be subject to…

God’s Promises for His Children Who Pray

Matthew 7:7-11 – Jesus encouraged His disciples to pray, by explaining to them how God views their prayers, and promising how He responds to them. As God’s children, the promises Jesus gave His disciples apply directly to us today. So, what are God’s promises for His children who pray? There are many! In this text, we will look at three of these…
