Pastor Geoff begins an expository preaching series through the SONG OF SOLOMON -- actually, it's the Song of all Songs. This is Solomon's Song; the best of the 1,005 songs that he wrote (1 Kings 4:32).
This message provides introductory information -- authorship, theme verse, interpretive method/framework, speakers, themes, etc.
This is a song that Solomon wrote that speaks of the intoxicating and happy joys of marital love between one man and one woman. It extols exclusive, heterosexual, God-glorifying, and delightful blessings that come with human love.
At the same time, human love in marriage is a mystery -- that points to something bigger & greater -- the love of Jesus Christ for His Bride, the Church.
Listen to this message as we journey through Song of Solomon chapter 1 together.
Pastor Geoff preaches Luke 18:1-8 -- which is continuing the end-times discourse that our Lord gave in Luke 17:20-37 -- and this story teaches the important lesson of importunity, persistence, relentlessness of prayer.
How does a Christian respond when unjustly treated in this world? What should Christians do when we're persecuted for our faith, unjustly treated, observing the society spiral down into more godlessness? Our Lord commands us to pray at all times and not lose heart. We are to come to God repeatedly knowing that as a loving Father, he will bring about justice for His elect!
Cry to Him! Speak to Him! Pray to Him! Trust in Him!
Pastor Geoff continues the verse by verse exposition thru the Book of Luke and teaches on this eschatological (end-times) 'little Lukan apocalypse' as Christ conveys truths about His future coming & His kingdom.
Don't be caught off guard! This text provides us with 5 features of the coming of the Son of Man.

Pastor Geoff preaches 1 John 5 on the streets of St Louis in the open air during a busy afternoon rush. He preaches about God giving testimony about His own Son, Jesus Christ. In Jesus is life. Apart from Him there is no life at all.
Pastor Geoff preaches on Christ's healing of the 10 lepers and the return of the one to worship and give thanks to Christ. This is a message not only on gratitude but also on the sovereign glory of Christ & His grace toward the outcast sinners (like the lepers, even a Samaritan leper!).

1. TOTAL Forgiveness
2. TRIUMPHANT Faith
3. TIRELESS Faithfulness
