Dear CrossPointe,If you can run a marathon, how much more easily could you run a mile? If you can do the harder thing, then how much more can you accomplish the lesser? That’s Paul’s reasoning in our text this week, Romans 5:9–11. If we can be sure that God has done the seemingly impossible task of reconciling his former enemies to himself, then how much ...

Dear CrossPointe, Our text this week, Romans 5:6–8, contains some of the sweetest words in the entire Bible. While we were still weak sinners, completely powerless and unable to do anything to change our situation, Christ died for us—the ungodly. What wonderful news. Embedded in these few verses is the very heart of the gospel. After our time in the Word, we&r...

Dear CrossPointe, This Sunday we will zero in on Romans 5:5, in which ​Paul explains that the basis of a Christian’s assurance is the indwelling Holy Spirit, who has been poured into our hearts. In other words, we can bank on our future as sure and certain because God has given us the down payment of his Spirit in us. The implications for the Christian life are en...

Dear CrossPointe, I’m really looking forward to this Sunday! We’ll be in Joshua 2 (and a bit of chapter 6 as well) studying a pivotal moment in the history of God’s people, when they finally put into motion plans to conquer the Promised Land. “Conquer” is probably a strong term, because the Israelites barely do anything. Rather, the Lord give...

Dear CrossPointe, Where is God when life hurts? How does his sovereignty intersect with our suffering? These questions have been around since Genesis 3, and our text this Sunday, Romans 5:3–5, helps us answer them. My hope is that our time together in this passage will help us build a better theology of suffering so that we can actually rejoice in it when it inevita...

Dear CrossPointe, This Sunday we begin Romans 5 which serves as a transition in the Apostle Paul’s line of thinking. Up to this point, he’s been arguing forcefully that we are made right with God by the gift of faith and not by works. Now, at the beginning of chapter five, he lays out some of the results that truth brings about in the life of a believer. This ...

Dear CrossPointe, This Sunday we’ll finish Romans 4 as we consider verses 22–25. It’s a short text, but power packed. Verse 25, in particular, is a kind of summary of the gospel in just a few words. It says that Jesus “was delivered up for our transgressions and raised for our justification.” Nearly every word is packed with theological signi...

Dear CrossPointe, Up to now, Paul's point in Romans has been that we are saved by faith, not works. As an example of this truth, he zooms in on the patriarch Abraham. If we are made right with God only because we have faith like Abraham, then it's really important for us to understand the nature of Abraham's faith. And that's the point of our text this Sunday, Romans 4:18...
