Generous Kingdom – Pt2

Ps Andre spoke about Generous Kingdom (part 2). We are blessed to be a blessing, however don’t let your motivation to be blessed be the reason you bless others. When you give out, God will give back.  Generosity is extremely important in Gods eyes.  It is linked to the closeness of our relationship to Him.  Where your treasure is there your heart is. Scripture about tithing Pro 11:25 – brings blessing Luke 16:38 – Give Pro 3:9 – Honour the Lord with your…

Generous Kingdom – Pt1

Ps Andre spoke about Generous Kingdom. We change our environment when we become like Jesus.  How?  The Key is to choose generosity! Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the father to the heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting shadows.  James 1:17 God is a generous God. When I consider your heavens, the work of your fingers, in moon and the stars, which you have set in place, what is man that you are mindful of him,…

Connecting to God

Ps Andre spoke about Connecting to God.  The culture of Cornerstone is connecting.  Connecting to God Connecting to others Connecting others to God. Humanity is designed for connection.  When we disconnect to God things go wrong. Here I am! I stand at the door and knock.  If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in and eat with him, and he with me. Rev 3:20 The one true living God wants connection with you.  There is something we have to…

Loving through Proverbs – Pt1

Ps Andre spoke about Loving through Proverbs. Proverbs 3 is all about Trust – trusting God.  Loving the Lord and trusting the Lord is synonymous.  V3 & 4 Let love and faithfulness never leave you; bind them around your neck, write them on the tablet of your heart. Then you will win favour and a good name in the sight of God and man.  Loyalty and kindness are to be one of the first things people should see about you.  It’s the culture…

Belong, believe and behave

Ps Andre brought a baptism service message Belong, believe & behave. We are all on a journey.  Baptism is the end of one chapter and the beginning of another.   We are all on a journey of faith.  Christianity is about Love, Grace Acceptance and Forgiveness.  It is Freedom. One Way to Jesus, of which could be entered via 3 doors. Door 1 – Intellectual or theological understanding, or an innate ‘unfounded’ faith in God.  BELIEF Reading the bible where it just makes sense. …

Amongst Giants – Pt2

This week Ps Andre spoke the second part in the series Amongst Giants. Giants of Faith – Nehemiah and the wall. Gal 5:1 – It is for freedom that Christ has set us free. Stand firm, then, and do not let yourselves be burdened again by a yoke of slavery. Giants are massive issues, they are freedom issues. Are there giants in a neighbouring land? What can you step up to the plate for? Opposition is opportunities for God. We…

Amongst Giants – Pt1

This week Ps Andre spoke about Amongst Giants. A giant is either a massive issue in our lives or they can be something in the darkness that we are unaware of and a giant causes a blockage. We, ourselves, need to become giants of faith and love, walking amongst our community. But to do so, we have got to be truly free. Galatians 5:1 says, It is for freedom that Christ has set us free. Stand firm, then, and do…

Designed for Destiny

This week Ps Andre spoke about Designed for Destiny. God has a plan and a purpose for your life. Moses killed someone, but that did not stop his destiny. David made mistakes while he was doing God’s work. God doesn’t make mistakes – You are where you are and who you are for a reason. For we are God’s workmanship, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do. Eph 2:10 You…

DNA – Pt3

This week Ps Andre continued to speak about the DNA of Cornerstone – What are we made of? Jesus was a revolutionary. He was not what they were expecting. He taught: love your enemy; kingdom of God on earth; loving the unlovable; touching those who you don’t want to touch. He had radical thinking about the Kingdom of God. Revolution meaning ~ An overthrow of a social order, in favour of a new system. Jesus flipped things on it’s side –…

DNA – Pt1

This week Ps Andre spoke about the DNA of Cornerstone. We are Christ followers, Holy Spirit focused, Prophetic, Theologically mature, Biblically literate & knowledgeable, have Faith that moves mountains, Generous & Sacrificial. We are Christ followers and Christ leads in love. Read 1 Cor 13:1-13. If we don’t do any of these things in love we have nothing. Don’t miss the opportunities to be loving. 1 John 1:4 says, God is love. Whoever lives in love lives in God and…

Philippians 4

This week Ps Andre spoke about Undermining Uncertainty from Philippians 4, in particular verse 6: Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. The enemy wants us to abandon our calling, prayer life & Scripture. When we worry, we fixate, and when we fixate, we abandon. Worry causes things outside of our control, to control us. We, however, are not designed to be worriers but Warriors. If you…
