This sermon uncovers 3 problem attitudes that pervaded the people of Judah -- and Isaiah exposes them. The problem attitudes that prevailed were.
1. LIVE IT UP!
2. LOOK AT ME!
3. LEAN ON HIM!
Rather than partying, reveling, leaning on wicked rulers, or even trusting in good rulers, we must LOOK TO THE LORD alone!
Pastor Geoff preaches on the practical instructions of Titus 3:1-2 on how to live in the world/culture. To do that well, we must remember the gospel (vv.3-8). But the gospel always begins with the bad news of our real, radical, depraved, and hopeless state without Christ (v.3). That's the sermon text for today.
We are looking at what the person is like BEFORE Christ saves them. This is your old nature.
Pastor Geoff preaches at a church in the ST Louis area and proclaims the very heart and core of the saving message of the Christian gospel -- the substitutionary death of Jesus Christ in the place of sinners.
Pastor Geoff preaches on the streets and proclaims that all people have a God-given gift within them -- eternity is placed within their hearts. Eternal beings -- and a knowledge of eternity. Come to Christ & live!
Pastor Geoff Kirkland preaches Mark 4:1-20 on the well-known parable of the soils. The key to this parable is: "How do you hear God's Word?" Or, what do you do with what you've heard? How does it change you?
1. The Parable
2. The Principle
4 kinds of hearers of the word (the first 3 are lost & unconverted & only the last one is truly saved)
May God help you -- and me -- to be hearers of the Word rightly. One sermon rightly heard & applied is better than hearing 100 sermons with no application.
May God help us!
Isaiah's Strange Sign-Act: Trust God Alone, Not Egypt!"
This sermon covers Isaiah 20. In this chapter, God calls Isaiah to loosen his prophetic garment and go naked (with just an undergarment) for 3 years -- acting out the humiliation of a 'captive' or a prisoner.
This sermon provides 3 very clear declarations.
False securities will turn on & destroy you (1-2a)
Following God demands your full allegiance (3-4)
Fix your hope & boast in GOD & nothing else (5-6)
In this sermon Pastor Geoff preaches Mark 3:31-35 -- being in the family of God
1. The natural family (31-32)
2. The spiritual family (33-35)
