Preaching directly from the bible is at the heart of the sermons at Cornerstone, but if you were away and missed one or would like a sneak preview before you come and meet us – you can listen to them from the comfort of your own home.


Hope in Crisis (Philippians 1:1-11)

Krish KandiahKrish Kandiah, January 20, 2013
Part of the Phillipians series, preached at a Sunday Morning service

Luke Kandiah reads from Philippians and Krish Kandiah helps us to delve further into the book of Philippians. In this very interactive sermon we look at the church in crisis and how Paul encourages the church in Philippi.

How do you respond in a crisis; how can we respond in a Christ-like way when faced with serious issues?

In this sermon you will hear an interview with Chesley Sullenberger, the hero of the Hudson, the captain who landed an airbus safely on the Hudson river in the USA.

Krish encourages us through the letter Paul sent to the Philippians from his jail cell to give thanks, be joyful, have confidence and work in partnership in difficult times. Not just living for today, but thinking on the future to the day of Christ's return.

Philippians 1:1-11

1:1 Paul and Timothy, servants of Christ Jesus,

To all the saints in Christ Jesus who are at Philippi, with the overseers and deacons:

Grace to you and peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.

I thank my God in all my remembrance of you, always in every prayer of mine for you all making my prayer with joy, because of your partnership in the gospel from the first day until now. And I am sure of this, that he who began a good work in you will bring it to completion at the day of Jesus Christ. It is right for me to feel this way about you all, because I hold you in my heart, for you are all partakers with me of grace, both in my imprisonment and in the defense and confirmation of the gospel. For God is my witness, how I yearn for you all with the affection of Christ Jesus. And it is my prayer that your love may abound more and more, with knowledge and all discernment, 10 so that you may approve what is excellent, and so be pure and blameless for the day of Christ, 11 filled with the fruit of righteousness that comes through Jesus Christ, to the glory and praise of God. (ESV)
