This Sunday: “Jesus on Missions”

Dear CrossPointe,We're continuing our series "Jesus on the Christian Life" with a look at Luke 9:5710:12, in which Jesus sends out the disciples after describing the cost of following him. It's an important text for our understanding of what it means to be "on mission" in this world, and it's got implications for global missions as well as local evangelism.If you've missed...

“No Separation” this Sunday

Dear CrossPointe,This Sundaywe'll finish up Romans 8 as we work through verses 35-39. The truthcontained in this text is breathtakingly marvelous. Romans 8 began with the promise of "no condemnation" for those in Christ and ends with the assurance of "no separation" for those whom God has loved in Christ Jesus. Our plan will be to consider the text, then zoom out and exami...

Back in Romans this Sunday

Dear CrossPointe,We're back in Romans this Sunday with a look at Romans 8:31-34. Martyn Lloyd-Jones called Romans 8:31-39 a "grand staircase" which takes us higher and higher until it culminates with no separation for those who are in Christ. I think he's right! Paul's argument in this text is really just a string of consequences that flow from the gospel that he's establi...

Dear CrossPointe,We've said for a few weeks that Romans 8 is all about assurance: God will bring his people safely home. For those who are in Christ Jesus, there is no condemnation and there will be no separation.

Dear CrossPointe,Last week we did a sort of overview of Romans 7:1425 and looked at the arguments for seeing the "I" Paul refers to as either before or after his conversion.
