Gracious | Colossians 1:11-22

Dave Astolfi shared a message called “Gracious” to wrap up our series on Grace. Discussion Questions Can you recall a time when someone extended grace to you? (Not just mercy or forgiveness, but they went the extra mile?) Which of the salvation metaphors do you identify with? How does that impact the way you see yourself? What is in your spiritual diet that keeps you reminded of God’s love?

Art & Beauty | Philippians 4:8

When Monica and I are on vacation we spot a contemporary art museum and I always say, “Hey, we should go check that out!” And then when we do go, I always hate it. I’m like, “What is this?!” So I’m preaching on art and beauty today… Let’s pray. I was sitting in one of my classes in seminary when a student raised his hand. I didn’t know this student very well. He was hipster; he wore a beanie to…

Peace That Lasts | Proverbs 3:13-35

Do you sleep well at night? No? Anxious? Worrying over something or someone? We all need peace. We need a peace that lasts. Proverbs connects wisdom with peace, but also something else… the tree of life.

Living Life After Jesus’ Death: Who Are You? | Colossians 1:21-23

Sermon Colossians 1:21-23 | Living Life after Jesus’ Death: Who Are You? 21 Once you were alienated from God and were enemies in your minds because of your evil behavior. 22 But now he has reconciled you by Christ’s physical body through death to present you holy in his sight, without blemish and free from accusation— 23 if you continue in your faith, established and firm, and do not move from the hope held out in the gospel. This is…

Marriage Part 1: Wives | Ephesians 5:21-24

Today’s sermon is the first part of a two part-series out of Ephesians on marriage. This week I’m talking to wives and next week I’m talking to husbands. All I have to say to wives is that you’re awesome. The end… I’m just kidding, but when I told my plan to several Cornerstone women about preaching on wives one week and husbands the next I could tell it made them each a little nervous.  But if you think you’re nervous.…

A Tale of Two Sundays | Colossians 1:15-18

Earlier this week, I was talking with one of my Jewish friends named Rachel, and she was telling me about how she was celebrating Passover with her family this week. She then asked about my plans for Easter, and I was explaining to her that I was going to this thing called a sunrise service – at 6 AM on Sunday morning. So she asked me a good question – Why early Sunday morning? This might be a question that…

M4: Molding Culture | Colossians 3:1-14

In Colossians 3:1-14, the Apostle Paul challenges us to form a new Christ-centered culture. In light of the resurrection, we form this new culture through a new mindset, realizing all we have in Jesus. A change in mindset is like a one-degree shift. It might not seem big now, but it can lead to a radically different destination over the course of a thousand miles. Sometimes Christians are called to live counter-culturally, countering sexual expression with sacrificial love, offering forgiveness…

M2: Making Good Work | Colossians 3:22-4:1

In Colossians 3:22-4:1, the Apostle Paul instructs slaves and masters on how they should perform their work. The Bible makes clear that work matters to God, because He uses it to bless the world, and He is ultimately everyone’s master. This reality changes our perspective. God should matter to our work, since when we do it well, we are actually helping to fulfill the commandment to love our neighbor. But how can we do this, especially if we feel like slaves…
