This Summer Cornerstone Wirral will be working through the book of Philippians. This Sunday Josh kicked of our series which is slightly extended as He set Philippians in its context looking at the beginnings of the church in Philippi from Acts 16 and why we as a church will be studying Philippians.
This summer Sundays will be a little different if you're a first time visitor at Cornerstone this summer, we're excited you've decided to join us. We hope you have a great time worshiping Jesus Christ with our family. Just know we will be rotating preachers this August. Come Septemeber we will be back into Luke's Gospel. Below is a little taster for you. We hope you enjoy.
Paul’s letter to the Philippians is perhaps best known for its emphasis on joy. “Complete my joy by being of the same mind...” (2:2). “Finally, my brothers, rejoice in the Lord” (3:1). “Rejoice in the Lord always; again I will say, Rejoice” (4:4). Variations on the word joy occur some 14 times in the book. But the reason Philippians is so full of joy, is because it’s so full of Jesus.
With breathtaking vision, Philippians compels us to revel in the beauty, satisfaction, and transforming power of Jesus and his gospel—the good news of what God has done to accomplish his purposes and deal with our sin through the life, death, and resurrection of his eternal Son, Jesus Christ. The gospel is in fact the book’s pivotal theme—more specifically, what it will take for the people of God to participate joyfully and unwaveringly in this gospel.
We will be looking specifcally at what it means as Gods people here on the Wirral to live out the Gospel of Jesus asking what are the implications on us as a people formed by the gospel and for the advance of the gospel. Specifcally in our community and mission.
