From our Lead Pastor, Jeremy Smith

The truth about riches is... Surprise! You’re rich!

I know we don’t all feel like that, and that doesn’t take away the real struggle right now in our country with the economy, but according to pretty much any world stat on wealth, you’re probably in the top 10% of the world.

The other truth about riches (the one we talked about in the message) is this:
In the end, worldly wealth adds up to nothing. The riches we accumulate on this earth, as much as they can help, don’t help us when it comes to eternity with God. The “rich fool” in the parable Jesus tells in the story we looked at on Sunday in Luke 12 reminds us of that reality. If you missed the sermon, you can find it here.

Being rich in money on this earth adds up to nothing in eternity, but being rich toward God, or having a rich relationship with God, pays dividends for eternity. What we do with the resources God has given us has a direct impact on our relationship with God. When we steward money God’s way, it leads to our faith growing as we learn to trust in His faithfulness, and it leads to other people being impacted by His message and love.

Two tools that we offer to help steward money God’s way are:
• Ramsey+ – this is most of Dave Ramsey’s material that we offer for free to our church. You can easily access Ramsey+ through the Crosspoint.Church app. (It should be a button at the bottom of the home screen on the app.)
• Financial Peace University – this is a class Dave Ramsey offers that can literally change the way you interact with money. Check with your campus for the upcoming availability of this class. I highly, highly recommend it!

Another tool is our Giving Response Card. As we end this message series, I want to encourage you to earnestly pray and ask God, "What do you want me to give to you through Crosspoint?" As God speaks to you, I pray you will take a step of faith and obediently respond. Please consider completing a Giving Response Card here to allow us to celebrate your response with you.

In Christ,

News & Announcements

Hard to Follow

New sermon series begins March 19.

MARCH 19 | "Narrow Road"
MARCH 26 | "Extravagant Sacrifice"
APRIL 2 | "Body & Blood"

Jesus came to the Earth with a mission to save the world by dying on the cross. Being a disciple of Jesus means denying ourselves and following Jesus to the cross. Throughout this series, we are going to “journey to the cross” as we look at the events that occurred during the last week of Jesus’ life in order to gain insight into who Jesus is and who we are called to be as followers of Jesus.
