Original Song: The Church

As we've been thinking about starting this new series on what it means to be 'the church' it reminded me of a song I'd written on the same topic about a year ago. I'd been struck at the time by how the promises and callings of the bible are written primarily not to individuals but to a people and therefore our identity and purpose as Christians is corporate first before it...

New Song- Rejoice

The song, 'Rejoice', is a song that celebrates the amazing truth that the Almighty, eternal, creator God is also our gracious, loving Father: Come and stand before your maker Full of wonder, full of fear Come behold his power and glory Yet with confidence draw near For the one who holds the heavens And commands the stars above Is the God who b...

New Song: The Same Power

'The Same Power' is a song that declares and celebrates the majesty and glory of Jesus, focusing especially on how this is demonstrated in his resurrection and ascension. Our prayer for the 'Life of David' series is that it would point you to God's true King and our hope is that this song will do the same: There is power in His name For the stone was rolled M...

New Song: Great Are You Lord

'Great Are You Lord' is a song that you've probably heard on in the background before or after a service at Cornerstone Church. It's a simple song that helps communicate a profound Scriptural truth - that everything we have is from God. The first verse paints a picture of who God is and what He's done: You give life,(Acts 17:25) You are love (1 John 4:8) ...

New Song: As For Me

It can be easy for Christians to think that the only choice we make to follow Jesus is the one when we first become believers. But the truth is that following Jesus is a choice that we make every moment, of every day for the rest of our lives. Like Joshua says to the Israelites 'choose this day whom you will serve as for me and my house, we will serve The Lord.' (Josh 24:1...

New Song: The Lord Our God

As we move into a new stage of life as a church it is important to remind ourselves of the fact that although our lives and circumstances will be constantly in flux, God is 'ever faithful' and 'never changing'. 'The Lord Our God' is a song that is all about God's faithfulness, protection and provision for his people and has many echoes to God's leading of Israel through th...

New Song: This Is Amazing Grace

This is a song that both contrasts and celebrates the majesty and grace of Jesus. The verses predominately focus on the majestic and the chorus on the gracious. Who breaks the power of sin and darkness? Whose love is mighty and so much stronger? The King of glory, the King above all kings Who shakes the whole earth with holy thunder? And le...

Original Song: Love Pursued

As we study the Gospel of Luke as a church, I was struck again when we arrived at the story of the Prodigal son (Luke 15:11-32). Whether our lives outwardly resemble a prodigal, Scripture is clear that we are dead, hard-hearted, and do not seek God in our own strength, walking away, choosing our own way (Eph 2:1-3, Rom 3:10-12, Ps 14:1-3, Is 53:6) BUT GOD It is God that p...
