In this audio-devotional, Pastor Geoff provides 5 pastoral-encouragements to young mothers with small children in the home.
These 5 words of encouragement are:
1. preach truth to your heart daily.
2. prioritize communion with God deliberately.
3. proactively shepherd your kids hearts to Christ frequently.
4. embrace God's call on you & place he has you in life.
5. remember that character is formed over the long haul.
Pastor Geoff preaches Luke 11:5-8 at the Grace Bible Conference hosted by Rockport Baptist Church in Arnold, MO.
This message centers on the theme of shepherding one another through persistently praying to God. Pastors, fathers, husbands, and leaders must remember to shepherd one another through persistently praying for one another.
Let us remember the power of persistent praying.
"Be Watchful for & Faithful Till the Coming of the LORD! Don't Receive Greater Condemnation!"
Pastor Geoff continues the exposition through Luke and teaches Luke 12:41-48 as our Lord teaches the crowds that all must be ready for the coming of the Son of Man.
Those who know the Master's will and do not act accordingly and prepare themselves will receive many lashes (in hell). Those who do not know his will but still do deeds worthy of condemnation will receive but few (in hell).
With greater light and exposure to the gospel, the condemnation of sinners will be greater. Don't fall into the lowest depths of hell from the pew of your bible-teaching church! With much light comes great responsibility!
"Why We Need Revival & Must Pray Desperately For It!"
In this audio blog, pastor Geoff provides the plea that we desperately need revival in our day. And furthermore, he shows why we should pray for revival. Finally, he concludes that God uses certain means whereby He brings revival to His people.
We need to pray for revival...
1. for the sake of God
2. for the sake of the Church
3. for the sake of the lost
4. for the sake of the gospel
5. for the sake of eternity
Let us call on God & take hold of God that He might rend the heavens and come down with mighty power upon us!
Pastor Geoff preaches the reality of sin and the remedy in Christ on the streets of St Louis Missouri as the Christ Fellowship army of gospel-soldiers proclaim Christ & Him crucified during a busy afternoon rush.
"A Prophecy of the Person, Work & Salvation of Jesus Christ!"
Pastor Geoff preaches the gospel of Jesus Christ from the Old Testament prophet of Micah. In Micah 5:2ff, Pastor Geoff preaches on the streets the glorious gospel of this prophecy given more than 600 years BEFORE Jesus came into the world:
The Prophecy of the Messiah
The Birth of the Messiah
The Authority of the Messiah
The Kingship of the Messiah
The Eternity of the Messiah
The Shepherd in the Messiah
The Peace from the Messiah
All this is derived from Micah 5:2ff. Come & believe in this God-Man, Jesus Christ, the Lord!
"The Ultimate Pursuit: Give Thanks to the LORD for He Is Good!"
Pastor Geoff continues the exposition through the Book of Psalms and heralds this glorious 'thanksgiving' psalm which calls all the people of God (in an antiphonal/responsive way): "Give thanks to the LORD for He is good!"
This psalm calls us to thank God & remember that His covenant-loyal love endures forever. Thank God for His...
Listen to this psalm & let's all chant from the heart & without end: "For His lovingkindness is everlasting!"
Pastor Geoff answers a very common question: "Can I live together with my boyfriend/girlfriend before marriage?" Even though one may not be married yet, many Christians quickly affirm: "we're not intimate together and for whatever reason we find it best to just live together."
Pastor Geoff shows why this is sinful. Three biblical reasons why it is sinful for people to co-habit and live together before marriage:

"Do Not Worry! The Sin of Worry & the Divine Remedy for It!"
Pastor Geoff continues the exposition through the Gospel of Luke & preaches 12:22-34 on the 'sin of worry.' Even though all people battle with sin and anxiety it is not to be tolerated and shoved aside as simply an 'issue' that everyone deals with.
It is sin and we must call it such. And there is, by God's glorious grace & clear revelation, a divine remedy for the sin of worry/anxiety -- faith in God & active, intentional & frequent thanksgiving to God (Phil 4:6ff).
Pastor Geoff preaches Psalm 135 and shows how God is good, great, glorious & gracious. This praise-hymn has a 3-fold structure:
1. the INVITATION to praise God
2. the REASONS to praise God
3. the RE-INVITATION/RE-AFFIRMATION to praise God
This God-centered hymn beckons us to praise our infinitely worthy & magnificently Triune and eternally unchanging God!
Pastor Geoff preaches John 3:3 on the streets of North Hollywood at the Metro station in the early morning rush.
He preaches during the Shepherd's Conference outreach with many men from around the nation who have gathered together to worship the LORD at the conference and to proclaim Christ and Him crucified on the streets of Los Angeles.
In this audio-blog, Pastor Geoff provides answers as to why he is premillennial in his end-times framework. That is to say, premillennialism teaches that Jesus returns before (pre-) the future, earthly millennial kingdom (millennium).
So, why premillennialism?
1. Normal, Plain Hermeneutic
2. Progressive Revelation of Scripture
3. The Faithfulness of God
4. Future Restoration of the Nation of Israel [Restoration of Israel]
5. The Sovereign Regeneration of God's People, Israel [Salvation of Israel]
6. The Universal, Earthly Kingship of Jesus Christ [Davidic Covenant]
Listen to Pastor Geoff elaborate on these six reasons and why they lead to a premillennial eschatological framework.
Pastor Geoff continues preaching expositionally & verse by verse through this discourse in Luke 12:1 which continues through Luke 13:9. He teaches before myriads of people who swarm him as he travels in the open air.
In this message, Jesus warns His listeners to be on guard against every form of greed (or, covetousness).
This message defines greediness, cautions against greediness, illustrates greediness, explains how to mortify (kill) greediness, and shows why God indicts greediness.
Listen to this message & draw near to Christ with fervent love for Him in your soul!
