Pastor Geoff continues his verse by verse exposition through Romans 8. This is part 1 of a 2-part series that will deal with two ways to live: those who are according to the flesh & those who are according to the Spirit.
This sermon deals with those people who are 'according to the flesh' and how Paul describes them in vv.5-8.
In this sermon, Pastor Geoff exposits Psalm 48 — a Zion psalm — and shows how the OT worshiper would travel to Jerusalem (=Mt Zion) to worship God in the once place that He so designated.
But for us as the NT Church, we don't go to a place or a mountain, we must worship "in spirit & in truth". There also awaits a day when we will enter the full & glorious heavenly Zion to worship the unrestricted presence of God forevermore.
Pastor Geoff continues the verse-by-verse exposition through Romans 8 and shows why there is 'now no condemnation for those who are in Christ.' There is no condemnation because of the work of the Father, the work of the Son, and the work of the Spirit. Truly this is an eternal salvation!

In this sermon, Pastor Geoff Kirkland preaches at Sunshine Ministries & continues his exposition through the book of Revelation and shows how God will cast down seven 'bowls' of judgment at the conclusion of the seven-year Tribulation.
This is the end of God's judgment on earth. There is wrath upon all unbelievers. Yet, the only escape is to turn to the one upon whom God poured out His eternal wrath — the Lord Jesus Christ — who is the only way of escaping this final judgment.
In this sermon, Pastor Geoff begins a verse-by-verse exposition through Romans 8. In this verse, Pastor Geoff provides five headings so as to better understanding the reality that the believer who is 'in Christ' will never â€” ever â€” experience one drop of God's divine wrath.
He is safe, secure, eternally protected and he is never to be under divine condemnation ever again!
In continuing the series on discipleship, Pastor Geoff shows the final goal of discipleship — perfect likeness to Jesus Christ. This will happen in glory when we are glorified, perfected, and sinless.
But until that day, we must strive to grow in the grace & knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ.
In this sermon, Pastor Geoff preaches Psalm 85:6 and shows a number of points concerning revival: God is the giver of revival, it always begins with His Church, it comes through much persistence in prayer, and it always results in God's glory.
Revival cannot be planned or manipulated. It is simply and solely a work of God the Spirit. Let us take hold of God in prayer fervently, boldly, faithfully, and passionately that He would glorify Himself in bringing revival.
In this sermon, Pastor Geoff preaches Psalm 45 on a royal king's wedding and shows the Messianic tones throughout.

"God Is in Your Triumphs & Your Troubles—Trust in Him!"
In this sermon, Pastor Geoff heralds Psalm 44 and shows how God gave His people prosperity in the past, then God gave them extreme pain in the present. Yet they must have a proper perspective with a prevailing trust in the LORD and His unchanging character.
Paul quotes from this psalm to underscore his argument in Romans 8.
Learn how to relate to triumphs & trials in your life & how to trust in the LORD.
In this sermon, Pastor Geoff concludes the expositional study through the book of Joshua and calls each person to answer what Joshua says: "choose for this day whom you will serve."
No one can serve two masters. We must believe in Christ and serve Him wholeheartedly.
One of the applications of this text is family worship. Geoff shows how there are three elements involved: singing, reading the Word, and praying.
He deals with the biblical foundations of family worship, compelling motivations to do family worship, practical outworkings of family worship, and he answers common excuses or objections to family worship.
