Dear CrossPointe, This Sunday we cover one of the more well-known portions of the Sermon on the Mount, Matthew 6:2534. In this passage, Jesus exhorts us to not be anxious but to entrust ourselves to God's fatherly care. What a timely text for us as we live in a world full of uncertainty.

What is the purpose of fasting? Should...Keep Reading
Dear CrossPointe, If you stop and think about it for a moment, the idea of prayer is staggering. The Almighty Creator of the universe not only allows, but beckons his people to speak to him as Father. This is incredible! And, through Jesus, he has given us instruction on how to pray (and how not to pray). I'm really looking forward to diving into our text this week, Matth...Keep Reading
