Who is God/Who Am I: Scripture – The God-Breathed Word

Digging Deeper

Pastor Tony continues the Who is God/Who Am I series by describing the importance of having the “God-breathed Word” (Scriptures) in our lives. Scripture is God’s way for us to get to know Him personally, as well as having dialog with our brothers and sisters. God speaks to us in many ways, but if we don’t spend enough time in the Word, we may be shortchanging what God really wants to say to us.

Who is God/Who Am I: Majesty, Splendor, and Glory

Digging Deeper

Pastor Tony continues the series of Who God is and who we are. He explores the infinitesimal magnificence of our Lord through His creation, as David did as a lowly shepherd. Though we are unrecognizable in His total realm, and we cannot even begin to understand His greatness, He gave His all to include us in His kingdom. Do we realize that mankind is a key part of His creation? Where have we cut ourselves short in our understanding of God as it relates to us?

Who is God/Who am I? The Starting Point: A Biblical Worldview

Digging Deeper

Pastor Tony starts another series that will explore Who God is and who we are. He covers this in 7 questions, presenting the Christian worldview as well as the naturalistic (atheistic) view – the answers are very different.

-Who is God?
-Who am I?
-What is the problem?
-What is the solution?
-What is right and wrong?
-What is my purpose?
-What does the future hold?

Do you see evidence that society is focusing more on naturalism? Do you see the difference in how your understanding of God affects how you live your life?

The Purpose of Cornerstone Community Church

Digging Deeper

Pastor Tony starts a two-part series on the purpose of Cornerstone Community Church – “We exist to be used by God to lead people from their unbelief to be fully mature followers of Jesus Christ.” We accomplish this by proclaiming, warning, and teaching. We persevere in this purpose till Christ is formed in each of us. This requires each of us to be radical followers of Jesus. Is Cornerstone’s purpose clear and accomplishable? What would you add to it? What can we do to serve our Lord to serve others to become fully mature in Christ?

Studies in Philippians: Series Recap

Digging Deeper

Pastor Tony completes our studies in Philippians by recapping what we’ve learned to fully grasp what it means to be a follower of Jesus Christ. All that truly matters in this life is pursuing Jesus. If we are pursuing Jesus, then He informs us of every area of our lives. If we only tack Jesus on to our lives along with all the other things, that results in mediocrity. What should we truly strive for as believers?

Studies in Philippians: Giving & Receiving – Role of Money in Ministry & Life

Digging Deeper

Do we sometimes take things out of context? Pastor Tony continues our study in Philippians 4 by analyzing the meaning of “I can do all things through Him Who strengthens me” and “My God will supply every need”. Our Lord didn’t give His life for us so that we can have all kinds of cool stuff – cool stuff is a gift from Him. Rather, we need to learn how to enjoy what He has given us and then share it with others. Do we struggle with giving and receiving? We must learn to do both equally so God is honored, rather than making God servant to us so that we can be honored.

Are You a Fast-Food Christian?

Digging Deeper

Ron Falstad continues our studies in Philippians 4: 4-9.

  1. Do Delight in God.
  2. Don’t have anxiety and live in it.
  3. Do be intentional in thought and deed. Bring all things to God in confidence… and leave it there.

When we don’t set our minds on His things, we will fill our minds with our things. Your mind never stops. It is like a leaking faucet in a bucket and the water is what we put into our minds. When the bucket is full nothing else can come in. Let God be God… don’t settle for anything else.
