Pastor Geoff preaches Luke 18:1-8 -- which is continuing the end-times discourse that our Lord gave in Luke 17:20-37 -- and this story teaches the important lesson of importunity, persistence, relentlessness of prayer.
How does a Christian respond when unjustly treated in this world? What should Christians do when we're persecuted for our faith, unjustly treated, observing the society spiral down into more godlessness? Our Lord commands us to pray at all times and not lose heart. We are to come to God repeatedly knowing that as a loving Father, he will bring about justice for His elect!
Cry to Him! Speak to Him! Pray to Him! Trust in Him!
Pastor Geoff begins an expository preaching series through the SONG OF SOLOMON -- actually, it's the Song of all Songs. This is Solomon's Song; the best of the 1,005 songs that he wrote (1 Kings 4:32).
This message provides introductory information -- authorship, theme verse, interpretive method/framework, speakers, themes, etc.
This is a song that Solomon wrote that speaks of the intoxicating and happy joys of marital love between one man and one woman. It extols exclusive, heterosexual, God-glorifying, and delightful blessings that come with human love.
At the same time, human love in marriage is a mystery -- that points to something bigger & greater -- the love of Jesus Christ for His Bride, the Church.
Listen to this message as we journey through Song of Solomon chapter 1 together.
Pastor Geoff preaches the gospel on the streets of St Louis on Sunday, October 9 during the Presidential Debate at Washington University. He preaches from John 14.6 -- Jesus is the ONLY way, the ONLY truth, the ONLY LIFE -- no one comes to God the Father except through Him.
In this sermon, Pastor Geoff continues the verse by verse exposition thru this urgently needed book in our day. This chapter is the woman's response to the man -- and it is her heartfelt and passionate response to a man who protects, provides for her, and pursues her, and woos her.

This message reveals God & calls sinners to embrace Him through faith in Christ for the forgiveness of their sin.
In this account, children & babies are brought to Jesus for Him to touch them, bless them, and pray for them. But the disciples rebuke those who brought the children and Jesus, when He saw this, became indignant & welcomed all the children to come to Him -- for to such as these belong the kingdom of God.
This message builds on our Lord's statement & provides 12 compelling reasons for all young people to come to Christ early in life!
Pastor Geoff preaches Isa 40 on the streets of St Louis & teaches on the attribute of God's self-existence -- God depends on nothing and no one for life and for existence. He is perfectly self-sufficient & self-sustaining in and of Himself.
"The Sin of Pride: Its Folly, Its Root, Its Consequences"
Pastor Geoff preaches on the account of King Uzziah of Judah -- and his sin of pride. This sermon explains the root of pride (the heart), the devastating consequences of pride, and how to mortify pride & replace it with humility.
"6 Ways to Anchor Your Soul on God This Election Season: The Unconquerable & Unrivaled God!"
Pastor Geoff preaches Isaiah 40 and provides 6 ways that this chapter can help us to anchor our souls on God during this election season. In all the changing seasons of our world, we must fix our eyes upon the unchanging God of glory.
This message works through the opening chapters of Isaiah and then surveys Isaiah 40 to show that God is the unconquerable, unfathomable, unrivaled, and supreme God. None can compare with Him!
Let us be so consumed with our great God that the lesser things of this world (and our society) don't stir us to anxiety or fear. Let us speak of Christ, live with courage, and suffer with joy!
"The Wedding Night: The High, Holy & Hot Delights Between Two Lovers!"
Pastor Geoff preaches Song of Solomon 4 and this chapter surveys the wedding night. Solomon & His love are now married & they're now alone in the chamber about to consummate their marriage.
He lavishes her with words of praise & delights regarding her personhood & her body. He loves her! He delights in her! He expresses affection for her!
This message shows the importance of having a biblical theology of sexuality -- the way God defines it. We need the objective, true, authoritative truth from God on the matter of sex while we live in a culture of chaos, confusion & disorder.
Praise God that He has given sex as a gift to be enjoyed as each spouse selflessly worships Christ by serving the other person in the physical lovemaking within the bounds of marriage.
"The Eternality of Jesus Christ, the One, True God"
Pastor Geoff preaches the Lazarus account from John 11 and shows how Jesus Christ -- the one, True God -- is a Person. Thus, God is a person with intellect, love, understanding, and wisdom.
God can relate to us & He has in the Person of the Lord Jesus Christ.
This is preached on the streets of St Louis, MO.
"Right Thinking About God: The Supreme, Holy Judge!"
