By Grace You Have Been Saved

One Off Ephesians  Instagram Post

Dear CrossPointe, If you missed Tyler's helpful sermon last Sunday, be sure to catch it here. On this family worship Sunday, instead of plowing through a weighty text in Hebrews 12, we will consider one of the most explicit gospel texts in all of the Bible: Ephesians 2:110. With the children joining us in the sanctuary, I think about what we hope every child who grows u...

A Faith Worth Longing For

One off Stain Glass 211

CrossPointe, This Sunday we're going to be looking at 1 Thessalonians 1:210. It's in these verses that the Apostle Paul commends the Thessalonians for their faith and example. Just reading it gives the believer a sense as to what type of faith is pleasing to the Lord. I hope that we will walk away from this text encouraged and challenged in our own faith. So, prepare your...

Looking to Jesus

Hebrews Series 240204

Dear CrossPointe, I trust Hebrews 11 was as helpful to you as it was to me. It contains so much encouragement to hold fast to Jesus by faith. This Sunday we're in one of the high points of the letter, Hebrews 12:13. It's an exhortation that stands on the foundation of the examples of faith from Hebrews 11. The preacher is summarizing his sermon in these verses. His main...

This Sunday: Conquering, Enduring, Approving Faith

Hebrews Series 240128

Dear CrossPointe, This Sunday, we come to the end of this famous chapter with a look at Hebrews 11:3240. Our author is bringing his exhortation to a close with a fascinating, instructive, and encouraging mixed bag of examples. He begins by recounting the deeds of those who conquered by faith and then unexpectedly highlights those who endured suffering by faith. He concl...

Enduring “as seeing him who is invisible”

Hebrews Series 240121

Dear CrossPointe, Good doctrine is beautiful, but good doctrine with real-life examples is even more beautiful. It's what we see in Hebrews 11. This Sunday, our text is Hebrews 11:2331 and the examples of Moses, Israel at the Red Sea and the walls of Jericho, and Rahab the prostitute are the most unlikely of candidates to make it into the example chapter. We need Hebrew...

Faith Looks Forward

Hebrews Series 230114

Dear CrossPointe, Hebrews 110 gives us reason after reason to have faith in the supremacy of Christ. Hebrews 11 then gives us example after example of those who have gone before anddemonstrated this faith. Our text this week, Hebrews 11:822, zooms in on Abraham and his family. Despite many reasons to doubt, they persevered, looked forward by faith,and trusted God. They ...

The Kingdom of Heaven Is at Hand

One off 231231

CrossPointe, I hope you had a happy Christmas, and as we look ahead to 2024 my prayer is that we as a church would increasingly find our contentment and joy in Christ alone. To cap off the year, I'll be preaching from Matthew 3:112, our introduction to John the Baptist. Much like his cousin Jesus, John is intent on delivering a simple message: "Repent, for the kingdom o...

Do Not Throw Away Your Confidence

Hebrews Series 231217

Dear Church, Our text this Sunday, Hebrews 10:2639, will take us through the end of this section of the letter before we begin the famous Hebrews 11 in January. This week's passage contains yet another warning (maybe the most severe of the five in the letter), followed by a call to remember past faithfulness and encouragement to persevere. This is yet another rich porti...
