Our task is clear…

If you’ve been around me any length of time, you’ve heard me talk about the following — it’s a favorite soapbox message of mine. But what Max Lucado said this morning was much clearer than I’ve ever been able, so I’ve taken the liberty of pasting a quote from his devotional for Wednesday, October 24. Here’s the deal. Today might…

Praying in the Circle

Praying for Revival: Hi Cornerstone — just a reminder that the church will be open (upstairs back door) from 7:30 am – 8:00 am every weekday morning until Good Friday, March 30, as we pray for personal revival and for our church and community.

In this video study, Pastor Mark reveals how taking up this challenge will not only change…

We say we are free, we have freedom, we are not a slave to any man or any thing, but in our heart of hearts do we really even believe that’s true, possible? I ask you to be honest, what holds you captive? Addiction: drugs, alcohol, pornography, sex? Maybe something less obvious: junk food, television, entertainment,…

Run!

Many times the old testament prophets wore coats of animal hair to signify their calling, that they “worked for God.” In my dream (see below) I am wearing a coat made up of the good deeds I felt I had done for God — but that coat, and the deeds that it signified, did not count for anything! Instead, the clothing of right-standing was provided by God and…
