Dear CrossPointe, The introductions to Paul’s letters are so rich, and Romans is no exception! In our text this week, Romans 1:8–15, we get a glimpse of how Paul views the Christian life. It’s a life full of thankfulness to God for other people and their faith. It’s a life that is bound together with other Christians whom we serve and who serve us....

Dear CrossPointe, This Sunday we’ll look at the second half of Paul’s introduction, Romans 1:5–7. It’s amazing how much truth Paul could pack into a few sentences. In particular, he says that the purpose of his ministry was “to bring about the obedience of faith.” Then, sixteen chapters later, he ends with this same phrase—“...

Dear CrossPointe, This Sunday we begin our series through Romans. I can hardly wait! Martin Luther described this letter as “really the chief part of the New Testament” and “truly the purest gospel. It is worthy not only that every Christian should know it word for word, by heart, but also that he should occupy himself with it every day, as the daily bre...

Dear CrossPointe, This Sunday we’ll finish up our brief Advent series in Isaiah with a look at the Anointed Servant in Isaiah 61. This text is a beautiful portrait and explanation of Christ and his mission. In fact, Jesus directly applies this passage to himself in Luke 4:16–22. Take some time to read through Isaiah 61 and Luke 4 before Sunday and come ready t...

Dear CrossPointe, This Sunday we continue our Advent series, “Seeing Christ in Isaiah,” with a look at one of the mountain peaks of the Old Testament, Isaiah 53. In this chapter about a suffering servant, the prophet Isaiah points his people to one who is coming to finally bear their sin and take it away. There is much for us to feast on in this chapter, so ta...

Dear CrossPointe, Will kicked off our Advent series, “Seeing Christ in Isaiah,” last week with an excellent overview of Isaiah and a look at the wonder and importance of the Incarnation and virgin birth of Christ. We’ve had some technical difficulties but the sermon should be uploaded soon, and I hope you’ll listen to it then if you weren’t h...

Dear CrossPointe, Every time we end a series through a book of the Bible I feel like I go through a kind of withdrawal. I’ll miss 1 Timothy and hope it has been beneficial to us as a church. On that note, I feel a pastoral burden to share with you some of my reflections from 1 Timothy about our life together as a local church. So, this Sunday will be a bit unique in...

Dear CrossPointe, Our text this week, 1 Timothy 6:11–21, brings us to the close of our 1 Timothy sermon series. I hope our journey through this epistle has been an encouragement to us as a local church entrusted with the good news of the gospel. In his closing words to Timothy, Paul exhorts his protégé to fight the good fight of the faith. Of course, P...

Dear CrossPointe, I’m really looking forward to diving into our text this week, 1 Timothy 6:1–10. The primary thrust of this passage is contentment in Christ in a culture of consumerism. If that was an issue for Christians in the first century, how much more so for us! Take some time to read the text before Sunday. Be careful not to think about other people w...

Dear CrossPointe, Our text this Sunday, 1 Timothy 5:17–25, contains Paul’s instructions to Timothy about honoring leaders while keeping them accountable. There is a beautiful gospel-balance in Paul’s words: leaders are to be respected, but they are in no way above anyone else. In fact, they are to be held to a stricter standard in many ways. And, because...
