In this sermon, Pastor Geoff exposits Ephesians 4:26-27 on putting off sinful, uncontrolled, unrighteous anger and dealing with it very quickly.
This text brings out the POSITIVE:

2. you must deal with it very quickly and biblically (26b)
3. prohibit Satan from gaining a foothold in your life (27)
This sermon was preached at a Senior Living home in St Louis, Missouri to a group of older folks who gather for the weekly Bible study. We are working through the book of Hebrews to show that "Jesus is better" -- and our study is one chapter per study to give the big picture of Christ's unrivaled & beautiful supremacy!
"Be A Man! Biblical Masculinity & Training Our Boys to Be Men!"
In this sermon, Pastor Geoff gives a strong admonition from God's Word that we must intentionally and proactively and biblically and prayerfully teach our BOYS to become MEN. We must MODEL and then TEACH what biblical manhood and biblical masculinity really is.
From 1 Corinthians 16:13-14 we see that we must teach them...
This sermon is a plea to parents (especially, Fathers) and ALSO to the Church congregation as a whole to come alongside in the teaching and training of our young boys to be biblical, strong, humble, prayerful, God-loving, servant-minded men.
"Run to God & His Word & He'll Prepare & Protect You In Life!"
In this sermon, God personifies wisdom as a street preacher who calls out to the multitudes of people passing by (the naive, the fools, the scoffers) and pleads with great urgency & severity:
1. Wisdom HERALDS, so Listen (20-22)
2. Wisdom PLEADS, so Repent (23)
3. Wisdom WARNS, so Fear (24-33)
"Some Thoughts on Premillennialism & Its Foundations"
In this message, Pastor Geoff continues the exposition through Ephesians and covers Paul's exhortations to believers to NOT walk like they used to live -- to NOT live like the unbelieving Gentiles live. They live in their futile minds. How is this described?
1. They are DARKENED
2. They are ALIENATED
3. They are CALLOUS/depraved
“I CONSIDER THE PREACHING OF THE GOSPEL TO BE THE MOST HONORABLE AND IMPORTANT WORK IN THE WORLD.
Because of the DESIGNER of the work = God has revealed himself
Because of the DUTY of the work = preaching praying, preaching, shepherding
Because of the DURATION of the work == it goes on for ever

"4 Final & Crucial Exhortations to Local Churches!"
This podcast provides 11 reasons for professing believers to COME ALL the way to Jesus Christ. Many profess to be "Christians" but they do not live what they profess. They claim to be Christians but they live like worldlings. Hebrews 4.1 warns you against NOT COMING SHORT of eternal life.
Come all the way to Christ -- or, as the Puritans put it: "Close with Christ".
11 reasons why...
ponder the nearness of your death
do not make any presumptions
be convinced of your tragic & hopeless condition
Jesus pleads with you
Your unbelief calls God a LIAR!
Christ cannot — and will not — save unbelieving sinners
Coming to Christ glorifies God
All Christ’s glory & joy will be yours
Today is the day of salvation!
Christ patiently waits for you
Do not out-sin the Devil.
