Before speaking of how and why to share the gospel with the nations, CROSS wanted to make clear what that gospel was. Trip Lee began CROSS 2013 by doing just that by teaching throughout his rapping on the truths of the gospel. See more talks given at CROSS 2013 at crossforthenations.org.
To close CROSS 2013, David Platt delivers a clarion call to all Christians, imploring them to consider what their obedience to the Great Commission looks like. For many, it will be as stateside senders; for some, it will be as lifelong goers; for others, it will be as offerings poured out en route to give the gospel to yet-to-be-reached peoples. In every scenario -- in going and sending and even in dying -- God is achieving His incontrovertible purpose: the supremacy of the glory of God in the Christ-exalting joy of all peoples.

D.A. Carson preaches on the social dimensions of both sin and the gospel. Sin doesn't just send you to Hell, and the gospel doesn't just save your soul. Each has necessary social, personal, and horizontal ramifications, culminating in the existence of and a commitment to the church, the bride of Christ, for it is in the church where the love of God is made known and reflected to the nations.

Michael Oh of the Lausanne Movement calls Christians to care about all types of global suffering, especially eternal suffering. In this, the church functions as both prophet and servant -- boldly heralding the truth of God's Word while simultaneously seeking to serve others' needs in showing the compassion of Christ. Individual Christians, too, will suffer and should use these moments -- as often as the Lord brings them -- to endure in faith and to hold out the gospel as the only true and lasting alleviation from suffering.
