Politics in the Life of the Church: Walking with God Amidst Political Turmoil

Media, Sermons, Walking With God | by Jonathan Leeman

Walking With God

We continue our series in the Psalms that runs parallel to our series in Romans. The purpose of this study is to learn from the psalmists what it means to faithfully walk with God through the ups-and-downs of life in a world marred by sin. Today, in Psalm 2, we consider how the reality of Jesus’ kingship over the nations helps us navigate times of political turmoil with confidence and hope.

This sermon also serves as the first session of a three-part workshop, Politics in the Life of the Church, with pastor and author Jonathan Leeman. For a full list of sessions and video recordings, visit downtowncornerstone.org/politics.

The Importance of Knowing our Sin

Media, Romans, Sermons | by Pastor Adam Sinnett

Romans
We continue our study of the most influential, life-changing, worldview-shaping letter ever written—Romans. It is a timeless, divinely-inspired masterpiece on the joy-filled-life-as-it-should-be freedom found in Jesus. Today, in Romans 7:7-13, Paul dives into the relationship between God’s Law (given to Moses) and the nature of sin. What was God’s purpose in giving his Law? How should we view it? What role does it play in our lives?

Dead to the Law, Serving in the Spirit

Media, Romans, Sermons | by Pastor Adam Sinnett

Romans

We’re back in our study of the most influential, life-changing, worldview-shaping letter ever written—Romans. It is a timeless, divinely-inspired masterpiece on the joy-filled-life-as-it-should-be freedom found in Jesus. Today, in Romans 7:1-6, Paul continues to unpack why God’s free grace, in Jesus, does not promote, nor encourage, sin. In fact, properly understood, Jesus’ grace forges a bond of belonging that leads to new Spirit-dependent, fruit-filled lives.
