Dear CrossPointe, We’ll finish Romans 1 this week as Paul continues to explain God’s case against sinful humanity. In particular, verses 26–32 explain how God gave mankind up to dishonorable passions—notably homosexuality. Obviously, homosexuality is a huge cultural topic and matter of debate. While this text is not exclusively about the sin of ho...

Dear CrossPointe, One reason we are committed to working expositionally through books of the Bible is because it forces us to deal with difficult passages that we might otherwise be tempted to skip. Our text this Sunday, Romans 1:18–25, is one of those passages. In it, Paul moves from the righteousness of God in verses 16 and 17 to the wrath of God in verse 18. He t...

Dear CrossPointe, India was a wonderful and fruitful time, but I’ve missed you! Looking forward to unpacking Romans 1:16–17 with you this Sunday. Martin Luther says this was the text that brought him to true faith in and understanding of the gospel. He called it the “sweetest word” and “truly the gate to paradise,” so I’m eager to...

Dear CrossPointe, While Brad is visiting our brothers and sisters in India, we’re taking a break from Romans to look at texts from the Gospels. This Sunday Robert Ward is preaching through John 11, in which Jesus demonstrates his love for a family and raises their brother from the dead. It’s appropriate that we’ll also be coming around the Lord’s T...

Dear CrossPointe, While Brad is visiting our brothers and sisters in India, we’ll take a break from Romans to look at two texts from the Gospels. This Sunday Will Hawk is preaching through Luke 7:36–50, the story of a sinful woman who finds forgiveness from Jesus. Read and pray through the passage before Sunday to prepare your heart! And remember, tonight at ...

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...
