In this very 'charged' and confrontational account between the Herodians/Pharisees against Jesus, we see the story unfold in 2 ways:
1. The Question: shall we pay taxes to Caesar?
2. The Answer: render to him what's due; render to God everything unconditionally!
Pastor Geoff preaches expositionally through Isaiah 48 and brings out the 2 rock solid, awesome, transcendent fortresses that we MUST hold and cling to through life:
1. The Glory of God
2. The Grace of God
Pastor Geoff preaches an expository sermon through Mark 12 (and Matt 21) on the parable of the vineyard.
Here we see judgment on the corrupt, vile, wicked leaders of Israel.
This account shows us:
1. The understandable story (1-9)
2. The unsurpassed Savior (10-11)
3. The unexpected shift (Matt 21.43)
4. The ultimate Sentence (Matt 21.44, 45-46)
Look to Christ! Respect the Beloved Son of God! He is worthy of worship!
"What Ignites a Church with Passion, Life & Joy? Evangelism!"
In this sermon, Pastor Geoff shows how Paul was committed to the preaching of Christ crucified! To be successful in life and in ministry, we must be FAITHFUL to what God calls us to do. Success in Christian ministry is *not* driven by results or fruit but by faithfulness to God and His Word.
This is an expository sermon. Pastor Geoff preaches through Mark 11.1-14 and shows how Jesus presents Himself publicly, dramatically and deliberately to Israel as her Messiah.
We see the Messiah's arrival in 3 ways:
1. the MANNER
2. the MEANING
3. the MIRACLE with it
