Jesus heals a centurion’s servant

Luke 72–3

Dear Crosspointe, This week, I am filled with thanksgiving to have such an encouraging church home and blessed to call each of you my brothers and sisters in Christ. I am also grateful to have the privilege of preaching God's Word from the pulpit this Thanksgiving weekend before Pastor Brad returns next week. Specifically, we will be studying Luke 7:110, in which Jesus h...

“The God of All Comfort”

2 Corinthians 13–4

Dear CrossPointe,In Matthew 11:2830, Jesus says, "Come to me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light." The Christian life is marked by rest from striving and straining for God's approval, but ...

Building Up the Body

Ephesians 415–16

Dear CrossPointe, I was so encouraged by Reuben's message last Sunday from Ephesians 4:17 on walking worthy of our calling. It was a clear picture of what the Christian life is to look like. If you missed it, be sure to catch it here. On that note, we're going to take a little break from our John series and pick up a little after where Reuben left off with look at Ephesi...

I was particularly encouraged last week as we looked at how Jesus Christ is more than sufficient to quench our spiritual thirst. If you missed it, do yourself a favor and listen tothe encouraging sermon. This upcoming Sunday, I have the pri...

Are you thirsty?

211031  Sunday Text Preview

Dear CrossPointe, Before we move on from John 7, I don't want us to skim over some of the most glorious verses in all of John's gospel. The message this Sunday will focus on John 7:3739 and Jesus' invitation to thirsty souls. In the middle of the feast, amongst his detractors and a confused and murmuring crowd, Jesus cuts to the heart with a gospel call that we all need t...

How does God’s good providence inform our lives?

211024 Sunday Text Preview

Dear CrossPointe, One of the doctrines we hold dearly is the truth of God's good providence in all things. Though the world is fallen, and often seemingly chaotic, God superintends all of human history and directs it according to his purposes. He does this in such a way that he is never the author of sin and does not "violate the will of the creature," as the historic con...

Are we misjudging Jesus?

211017 Sunday Text Preview

Dear CrossPointe, I will tell you thatJohn 7 has been a challengingchapter for me thus far in understandingthe text's point and application. On the surface, it is essentially a narrative of the mounting conflict between Jesus and the Jewish leaders. While that's very important for us to know, I've wrestled a bit to apply this chapter to our lives and context. With that c...

“Feeding on Christ”

John 648–51

Dear Church,This Sunday we'll cover a larger passage of Scripture than usual as we finish out John 6 by looking at verses 4171. In our text, Jesus' claim to be the "bread of life" is misunderstood by the crowd and causes many of themeven some that were called his disciplesto ultimately turn back and follow him no longer. It's a surprising end to a chapter that begins with ...
