This sermon surveys John the Baptist. Jesus called John "The lamp burning & shining" (John 5.35).
John was a man of...
1. Unflinching courage (a preaching man)
2. Unambiguous clarity (baptizing man)
3. Unparalleled humility (humble man)
4. Undeniable hope (Christ-pointing man)
Let's all strive, by God's grace, to emulate John and point others to Jesus Christ, the Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world!
"Isaiah Intro 1: The Man Isaiah and His Background"
This sermon seeks to begin to uncover the "unfathomable excellencies" of Jesus Christ (Eph 3.8). There is so much in Christ and in His Person and Work. Colossians 1.15-20 is the text that Pastor Geoff exposits. In this passage we see 6 simple and delightful DECLARATIONS about Jesus Christ.
1. Jesus is GOD.
2. Jesus is CREATOR.
3. Jesus is SUSTAINER.
4. Jesus is HEAD.
5. Jesus is PREEMINENT.
6. Jesus is SAVIOR.
"The Beginning of the Gospel of Jesus Christ, the Son of God!"
This sermon examines why God has saved His people and then left us here. Why? What's our purpose? Our aim? Our ambition? Our purpose in life? Mark 5 is an account of Jesus healing & delivering the Gerasene Demoniac. We see this in 3 points:
1. The pitiful condition
2. The powerful Christ
3. The purposeful conversion**
From 1 Peter 2.9-10, Psalm 66.16, and Mark 5.18-20 we see the need for true believers to speak up of what God has done for our souls! We must speak, explain, declare, announce, and proclaim the saving mercies of Jesus Christ!
Description This sermon covers Ephesians 3:17-18 and is Paul's prayer for the saints to really know, to genuinely know the exceeding love of Christ.
This message is for us to KNOW the love from Christ & to grow in our affectionate love FOR Christ.
