Dear CrossPointe,

This Sunday we’ll finish up our brief Advent series in Isaiah with a look at the Anointed Servant in Isaiah 61. This text is a beautiful portrait and explanation of Christ and his mission. In fact, Jesus directly applies this passage to himself in Luke 4:16–22. Take some time to read through Isaiah 61 and Luke 4 before Sunday and come ready to lean forward together as we worship our Great God and King. Looking forward to seeing you all!

Grace and peace,
