Cornerstone Miri  We exist to become a dwelling place for God's presence & for people to encounter Him. SERVICE TIMINGS: SAT, 7PM || SUN, 9AM & 11.15AM

Genesis 28 records the first mention of the "house of God". What is strange about this picture is that there was no building involved. The "house of God" wasn't a physical tabernacle, tent or temple. What then made the house of God? The description of it had an open heavens, a ladder with angels ascending and descending, and the Presence of God. This is in its entirety what the house of God is! The central focus of Christianity is not the excellent and great services within a building every weekend per se, it's hosting His Presence! When Jesus was baptised, the heavens were torn open and it's not closed ever since. We live under an open heaven! To ask for another open heaven is to incorrectly steward that which was already given to us. We now have the privilege to host His Presence everyday and everywhere! Learn to be Presence conscious and your walk of holiness will follow.

SATURDAY & SUNDAY SERVICES // HOSTING THE PRESENCE: Part 2 of 2

Somewhere along the lines of church history, the people of God started to gather around a sermon; but the children of Israel started off with gathering and encamping around the Presence of God. A huge part of our Christian living today is surrounded by our weekend services, programs and events which is a great platform to bring people together but it is only the Presence of God that has the power to bring real breakthrough and real change in lives. When David said, “One thing I desire” (Psalm 27:4), he was referring to the Presence. When Paul said, “…One thing I do,” (Philippians 3:13), he was referring to the Presence. The Presence of God must be our “one thing”. His Presence must be our greatest pursuit in our Christian walk not because it’s a good way to live but because it is the only way to live.

You and I will always reflect the nature of the world we are most aware of. If the reality within our lives is broken and bitter, we would naturally carry with us a negative and depressing atmosphere. However, if we carry the Presence of God within us, then we would release heaven around us. Part of the Lord’s prayer was so that His Kingdom come, and His will be done on earth as it is in heaven (Matthew 6:10). The spirit of God comes into us to set us free, but it comes upon us to bring freedom to the broken world. May our desire always be to pursue the presence of God so that His Kingdom can come through us and into the earth as it is in heaven.

// A house Divided Cannot Stand
.
The struggle with unity is not something unique or new. It was a struggle since the inception of the church. There was a cultural disunity when the Hebrew widows were fed and the Greek widows were neglected in the early church. There was a clash in preferences in Romans 14 when some wanted to worship God on Sunday and others on Saturday, while others wanted to eat only vegetables and the others everything. We see a personality preference amongst the Corinthians when some said they were of Apollos, and others of Paul, while others of Cephas, etc. Being in the same church doesn't signify unity like eleven soccer players form a soccer team. There are 5 attributes we must guard against that could cause disunity amongst a congregation - 1) Making everything about you: Selfishness, 2) Fighting over secondary petty things, 3) Gossip, 4) Refusing to forgive, 5) Taking our eyes off Jesus. May a united church bring healing to a divided land, for by our genuine love for one another will the world know that we are His disciples indeed.

SATURDAY & SUNDAY SERVICES // A HOUSE DIVIDED CANNOT STAND

Unity in the body of Christ isn’t something to be taken for granted nor taken lightly. It’s a gift from God made possible by the cross of Jesus Christ and made effective by the working of the Holy Spirit. Unity isn’t something we’re able to create; it is our responsibility to guard. We observe in the bible that there were problems with unity from the inception of the church. There was a cultural clash when the early church was caring for Greek and Hebrew widows. While distributing food, the Greek widows were being left out. Amongst the Roman Christians, there were divisions over preference. Some preferred to worship on Sunday, and others practiced the Sabbath day. Some ate only vegetables, and others ate everything. These differences created division. The Corinthian church was divided over the personalities and teaching gifts of their greatest teachers. Similarly, each church today has the potential of disunity over such things as ethnic culture, church culture, doctrinal differences, personality differences, and personal preferences. Disunity is something the church must be aware of and wisely labor against.

YOUTH & ENGLISH MAIN SERVICE // The Gift of Hospitality
There are several verses in the Bible that makes mention about the gift of hospitality and how we are to be hospitable with the Body of Christ and also to strangers. 1 Peter 4:9-10 says, “Show hospitality to one another without grumbling. As each has received a gift, use it to serve one another, as good stewards of God’s varied grace.” It’s easier to show hospitality to the people we are most inclined towards but scriptures mention to also show hospitality to strangers, to the sick, the poor, the broken, for as you do unto the least of them, you do it as unto the Lord.
