Preparing for Sunday + Weekly Announcements

Dear CrossPointe,Our plan is to dig into Romans 8:5–8 this Sunday, in which Paul contrasts those who live according to the flesh with those who live according to the Spirit. John Stott breaks this text down helpfully when he says these verses are about two categories of people (unregenerate and regenerate) who have two different perspectives which lead to two di...

  Dear CrossPointe,It’s so good to be back in Romans! Last week we looked Romans 7:1–6 and what Christ has done for us in regards to the Law. As he says in the Sermon on the Mount, he doesn’t abolish the Law but fulfills it on our behalf. Because we are united to him, all that he has done is ours. This is staggering!But we have some unfinished busin...
