Introduction: An illustration from P. R. Van Gorder: “Late one night a salesman drove into a strange city and tried to get a room in a hotel. The clerk informed him that there was no vacancy. Disappointed, he started to leave the lobby when a dignified gentleman offered to share his room with him. Gratefully…
Do you know that Jesus prayed for you? I am not asking conceptually that Jesus is praying for us in heaven now, but he literally prayed for you before he went to the cross. John 17 records Jesus’ prayer after the Last Supper. It’s known as his Farewell Prayer or High Priestly Prayer. You are included in that prayer.
As we step out of a decade, a year gone by, and as we step into 2020; I want you and I to clearly see how God desires, even mandates that you and I should live.

2 Corinthians: Sufficient Grace
John Mathew • Sermon • • 51 views • 40:26
God wants us to represent His reconciliation ministry. How? We represent by 2 frameworks. (1) We represent by our motivation of Christ (vv11-15) and (2) We represent by our new state in Christ (vv16-21).

Introduction Today is our communion Sunday. If you’ve never been with us for a communion service we do things differently than normal.

An individual sermon (not in a series) on Paul's words in 2 Corinthians 5:11-21. It is about regaining a biblical fear of the Lord and using that to passionately persuade people to be reconciled with God through Christ.
Jesus Christ demonstrated his love for humanity by sacrificially giving his life on the cross and resurrecting from the dead. Because of this incredible act of love, those who are in Christ have become new creations. All of our past mistakes, sins, and miscues have been covered by the blood of Jesus. Our past no longer has the last word and final say over our lives. We have been given a fresh start. Pastor Aaron preaches that we have been reconciled to God and we can give hope to others.

The Church: Who and What is It?

Anyone in Christ
Douglas Vaughan • Crosspoint Community Church • Sermon • • 9 views • 38:25
All this is from God; He reconciled us to himself through Christ. If you are in Christ, then you are a new creation. The old is gone. The new has come. If you are in Christ, then your outlook, in fact, your relationship with God, yourself, and other people is new. By His grace, God is transforming you for His glory. What does this life in Christ look like?
Mission through Weakness
Our eyes have been opened to see what God has done for us, therefore we should represent Christ to others during this difficult time so that they too may see.

Opening Have you ever been proud to represent something? REALLY proud?
