What is next?

On Sunday Ps Andre spoke about What is Next? Key verses taken from Matt 14:22-33, Mark 6:45-52, John 6:16-20 Jesus walks on water. Before Jesus walked on water, he feed the 5,000, then he sent his disciples down to the lake while he went up the mountain to pray.  When it was dark, the wind come up and the disciples were being rocked around in the boat.  Jesus could see this from the mountain top. Jesus is watching and praying for you during…

King David – Pt4

On Sunday Ps Andre and Hannah shared the last part of the King David series. Bathsheba The prophet Nathan confronted David about his sin with another man’s wife. David when confronted, acknowledged his fault and repented. Jesus also tells us to repent.  We are called to STOP, turn around (do a 180) and change our ways. Folks, when all goes wrong go to God.  Praise Him first. Then I acknowledged my sin to you and did not cover up my iniquity.  I said, “I will…

King David – Pt2

Ps Andre & Warren spoke about King David – part 2. David was still a boy when God chose him to be Israel’s King.  We are told in 1 Samuel 16:13 that Samuel took the horn of oil and anointed him in the presence of his brothers, and from that day on the Spirit of the Lord came upon David in power.  David had Heart over Talent. We will all know people that have Talent over Heart (TOH),  God wants Heart over Talent (HOT), The best…

The Power of Testimony

Ps Andre spoke about The Power of Testimony Testimony is powerful, because – It’s evidence. You can argue theology, opinion & interpretation, but you can’t argue against someone’s testimony of transformation. Let the redeemed of the Lord say this – those he redeemed from the hand of the foe. Ps 107:2 Testimony is powerful because – it’s evidence of God moving. Testimony is powerful, because words are powerful. When we put bits into the mouths of horses to make them obey us, we can turn the whole animal.  Or…

Big God, Big Me

Ps Andre spoke about BIG GOD, Big Me. We have a BIG, BIG GOD. Our God is Omniscient – All Knowing Our God is Omnipresent – Everywhere, All the time We have nothing to measure Him by.  He is BIG and Close; Mighty & Powerful and Intimate & loving. For God so loved the world that he gave His one and only Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life. John 3:16 There is an intimacy, there…

Stepping into

Ps Andre spoke about Stepping into. You are the light of the world.  A town built on a hill can not be hidden.  People do not light a lamp and put it under a bowl.  Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house.   In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven. Matthew 5:14-16 Cornerstone is a city on a hill. …

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…
