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 7:3650, the story of a sinful woman who finds forgiveness from Jesus. Read and pray through the passage before Sunday to prepare your heart!

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"to bring about the obedience of faith." I think un...Keep Reading
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 bread of the soul." H...Keep Reading
