Dear CrossPointe,I'm thoroughly enjoying our study of John and hope you are as well! This Sunday we'll dive into John 2:112 and the well-known story of Jesus turning water into wine at a wedding in Cana of Galilee.

Dear CrossPointe,Our text this week, John 1:1418, contains one of the most beautiful descriptions of Christ in the Bible"full of grace and truth." Jesus is both the friend of sinners and the judge of all mankind. He is the merciful healer and the one turns over tables in the temple. He is the helpless babe in the manger and the sovereign Creator of all things. Jesus is the...Keep Reading
