WEEK 1 - Forgiveness - No other words to be spoken (Psalm 85)
WEEK 2 - Salvation - How do we obtain it, is this enough? (John 14)
WEEK 3 - Anchored - Am I strong? What moves me? (Psalm 130)
WEEK 4 - Blessings - I am blessed and I am a blessing. (Luke 15)
WEEK 5 - Peace- The wind and seas even obey. (Romans 5)
WEEK 6 - The Tomb - It is finished! Is it? (1 Corinthians)
During this Holy season, we will be meeting every Saturday from 10:45 am to 12:30 pm
We will be studying, "The Curtain." The meaning behind it being torn and what that signifies for us.
We will walk through, Solomon's temple, The second temple, and follow the prophesy that was fulfilled. These 6 weeks are preparing us to receive our, "Risen Savior" on Resurrection Sunday (Easter Sunday).
On Good Friday, we will feel the impact of Calvary and our Savior as the Sacrificial Lamb of God.
There has never been a love like this before, for our debt has been paid in full.
Every day read and journal in your prayer devotional, "Torn," and continue to pray, meditate and sacrifice.
We are cleansing, replenishing and edifying our temples to be acceptable to our Lord Jesus Christ.
Lent is a solemn religious observance that begins on Ash Wednesday (February 22 and ends on Holy Thursday the day before April 6, 2023, Good Friday, ). The purpose of Lent is the preparation of the believer through prayer, repentance of sins, , atonement, and self-denial. Its institutional purpose is heightened in the annual commemoration of Holy Week, marking the death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus, which recalls the tradition and events of the
New Testament beginning on Friday of Sorrows, further climaxing on Jesus' crucifixion on Good Friday (April 7,2023) , which ultimately culminates in the
joyful celebration on Easter Sunday of the Resurrection of Jesus Christ. (Sunday, April 9,2023 )
In Lent, many Christians commit to fasting or giving up certain types of luxuries as a form of penance. Many Christians also add a Lenten spiritual discipline, such as reading a daily devotional or praying on scheduled times to draw themselves nearer to God. Some churches remove flowers from their altars.
Lent is traditionally described as lasting for forty days, in commemoration of the forty days Jesus spent fasting in the desert, according to the Gospels of Matthew, Mark and Luke, before beginning his public ministry, during which he endured temptation by Satan.
The forty days of Lent begins this year on February 22nd and continues through to Thursday, April 6, 2023 and the 40 days do not include Sundays.
Cornerstone Chosen Ministries has incorporated the observance of the season of Lent. During this Holy Season, we stress the importance of giving up something to discipline our flesh and to surrender to our spirit. We fast and pray as believers, knowing that Jesus instructed us that some things will only happen through fasting and prayer (Mark 9:29)
We acknowledge that in order to have a relationship with God, we must first acknowledge our sins and ask for forgiveness and we do this through repentance (From then on Jesus began to preach, “Repent of your sins and turn to God, for the Kingdom of Heaven is near. Matthew 4:17 NLT)
We acknowledge the Atonement of which is the reconciliation of God and Us through the sacrificial death of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. We celebrate the Holy Week to acknowledge the death and resurrection of our Savior.
Good Friday - Good Friday is the day that our Lord Jesus Christ went to Calvary and died on the cross for all of our sins. This day signifies the unconditional love that God has for us. In 2015 at Cornerstone Chosen Ministries, we implemented this day to be a day of Prayer and reverence for our Savior. Our Sanctuary doors open at 8:00 am and is open all day until 7:00 pm. During the hours of prayer the Sanctuary is open for anyone who wants to pray or meditate to come into the House of the Lord and reverence that time.
