Rejoice! We Have a Living Hope

One off & Easter

CrossPointe, I'm really looking forward to preaching this Sunday! Our text is one that I am convinced needs to take up permanent residence in our hearts and minds. 1 Peter 1:39 is one of those passages that clearly speaks to the beauty of the gospel and its immediate application to our lives. It is rightly said that the study of God (theology) is meant to lead us int...

An Unlikely Convert

221204 Acts

Dear CrossPointe, If you're like me, then the holidays are a special time of the year! Typically, it signals more time with family and lots of delicious foodboth of which I love. This time of year can be joyous for so many reasons, but that doesn't mean that it can't also be difficult. I'm sure each of us can picture one or more loved ones that we wish would belie...

Christ’s Unwavering Love

John’s Gospel Series 220904

CrossPointe, If you haven't listened to Brad's sermon on John 18:114 from last week, make sure to do so! Not only was it an excellent and edifying sermon, but it will also orient you to our text for this Sunday, which is John's account of Peter's denial in 18:1527. Outside of the death of Christ on the cross, this chapter is really one of the darkest depictions of Jesus' ...

He Has Overcome the World

John’s Gospel Series 220731

Dear Friends, This Sunday we'll be looking at John 16:2533, which is the end of Jesus' Farewell Discourse (13:3116:33). For the past several weeks we've looked at Jesus' final instructions to his disciples that explain what the life of faith will look like in his absence. We've seen that Jesus is the only means to receive and approach the Father; that as Jesus leaves he w...

The Vine, the Vinedresser, and the Branches

John’s Gospel Series 220703

Dear Friends,This Sunday we're continuing our walk through the Gospel of John looking specifically at John 15:117. Like all of John's gospel, this section is packed to the brim with grace and truth. I'm sure that many of you are familiar with the illustration Jesus uses here: that he is the Vine, his Father is the Vinedresser, and his disciples are the branches. This is...

God’s Plan of Salvation

John’s Gospel Series 220522

Dear CrossPointe, This Sunday we'll be looking at John 12:2750, and I can't wait! These verses contain the final discourse of Jesus' public ministry, and while there is a beautiful simplicity to what Jesus is saying there is also great deptha quick read will reveal just how much is contained in this rather short section of Scripture. But in the end, the whole point is t...

Divided at Heart

1 Cor. 32–3

CrossPointe, This past weekend we were blessed to have Ed and Anna Moore with us, and what an encouragement they were! If you missed any of Ed's sermons, do yourself a favor and go listen to them. They were so rich! You can find them here: This Sunday I'm looking forward to gathering together and digging into 1 Corinthians 3. As we r...

The Prodigal Son

Luke 1521–24

Dear CrossPointe, This Sunday we'll be looking at a portion of one of the most well-known and loved chapters in all of the Bible, Luke 15. This chapter contains Jesus' famous parables of the lost sheep, the lost coin, and the prodigal son, which is the parable we'll dig into. And while each is a parable in its own right, Luke 15 is actually just one big parable, and the p...

“The Sacrifice of Isaac”

Genesis 221–2

Dear CrossPointe,This Sunday we'll be looking at Genesis 22, the account of God's call upon Abraham to sacrifice his only son, Isaac. This is likely a familiar passage of Scripture to you, whether you grew up in the church or not.Typically, those within the church look to Genesis 22 as a beautiful account of God's grace, but to those outside the church it's a handy text fo...

“Here I am! Send me.”

Isaiah 68–9

Dear CrossPointe, This past Sunday we entered the throne room of God with the prophet Isaiah. There we met God in his all-consuming glory and learned that it pleases him to cleanse those who are willing to repent of their sin. For Isaiah, this moment was both terrifying and thrilling. But this begs the question, "What now?" Is it possible that Isaiahor any of us for that ...

“Holy, Holy, Holy”

Isaiah 61–3

Dear CrossPointe,This Sunday as we gather together we'll be looking at a well-known portion of the Bible, Isaiah 6. Now, what we typically latch onto (and rightfully so) is Isaiah's bold expression of faith and obedience when he says, "Here I am! Send me" (6:8). But before we can get there we must enter the throne room of heaven. We must come face-to-face with the Lord. It...

This Sunday: Saul’s Conversion

Acts 93–5

Dear CrossPointe,This Sunday we will be looking at a well-known story from God's Word, the conversion of Saul of Tarsus on the Damascus Road in Acts 9. One of the reasons this account is so cherished by the church is because it pictures so beautifully the grace of God in salvation. It's one of those moments in Scripture where we simply have to pause and praise God that he ...

“Is anyone ever too bad to receive God’s grace?”

2 Chronicles 33_13

Dear CrossPointe,This Sunday we will be digging into 2 Chronicles, which is considered by many to be one of the most neglected books in all of the Bible. To be fair, this book isn't known as a thriller but instead serves as an historical account of the kings of Judah. Most of the accounts are designed to summarize whether a king "did what was right in the eyes of the Lord"...

This Sunday: Hebrews 11

Hebrews 11_1–2

Dear CrossPointe,This Sunday we will be looking at Hebrews 11, which is one of the most beloved and extensive explanations of faith in all of the Bible. That's not to say it is the most exhaustive or doctrinally rich exposition of faith, but it is so loved because it is a picture of faith at work in the lives of some of the greatest heroes of Scripture.Entering into this t...
