Home is where the heart is. We all yearn for a home where we know we will be provided for, protected, encouraged, loved, celebrated, counseled, and very simply: wanted.
This vision of home is far too often not the case for many, but is still the desire for everybody. Each and every one of us yearn for such loving relationships and a place of solace as described in the simple, yet profound word, “Home”.
Many homes tend to be broken by selfish desires, bitterness, jealousy, anger, and addictions, but unlike all earthly homes there is one that is truly home. There is one home where perfect love resides, protection always triumphs, the welcome is always warm, and where Dad is always actively and eagerly seeking to express how deeply he cares for, enjoys, and delights in you.
This Dad is the God of the Bible. This Dad is the Perfect Father. This Dad wants to embrace you at this very moment!
The God of the Bible has expressed His deep, deep love for you in sending Jesus to take all your sin upon Himself to bring you to His loving Father. On the merits of Jesus and His relationship with the Father we are welcomed home, adopted in, and forever a part of His family. We no longer have to be slaves of fear and loneliness, because we have the King of the Universe, our Father, at our side (Gal 4:6-7, Rom 8:31).
At Cornerstone, we want to welcome you home. If home is where the heart is, then we want you to put your heart in the perfect home; that home is in the hands of the One who made it, came to save it, and gives you an entirely new heart to praise, love, and adore Him!
