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 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:

"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!"

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!
"Jesus Is Alive & Returning! Be Ready for His Soon-Coming!"
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!
"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!
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.
