Pastor Geoff preaches through Isaiah 8 -- how to make your crisis into a sanctuary.
1. you must have the RIGHT TRUST.
2. you must have the RIGHT FEAR.
3. you must have the RIGHT AUTHORITY.
Psator Geoff teaches on How to manage time well:
Psalm 39:4 —
5. Resolved: Never lose one moment of time; but seize the time to use it in the most profitable way I possibly can. (Jonathan Edwards)
Speak with God Before Speaking with Men (Pray!)
Warm Your Heart with Biblical Truth (Read!)
Prioritize & Exert Diligence to Accomplish the Tasks (Effort!)
Do Even the Private and Smaller Duties Heartfully (Faithful!)
Make & Keep Time for your Marriage, Family & Church (Family!
6. Resolved: To live with all my might, …while I do live. (Jonathan Edwards)
Pastor Geoff provides counsel and ways to be praying for the families in your local church.
Consider these ways of praying...
For marriages to be holy
For singles to be faithful
For widows to be disciples
For retired to be disciplined
For women to be submissive
For men to be humble leaders
For children to be obedient
For teens to be Spirit empowered
For babies to become missionaries
For shut-ins to rest in Christ
For families to be little churches of worship
From Hebrews 13:18 — Pastor Geoff shows how YOU as a church member can faithfully pray for your pastor(s):
For him to pray earnestly
For him to walk humbly
For him to preach powerfully
For him to exegete accurately
For him to prioritize biblically
For him to evangelize urgently
For him to worship joyfully
For him to lead courageously
For him to maintain purity
For him to shepherd patiently
For him to cultivate unity
In this message, Pastor Geoff preaches on the last of the psalms written by Asaph. In this psalm, Israel found themselves surrounded by a host (at least 10) people groups/nations on all sides looking to annihilate them.
Asaph, on behalf of Israel, prayed and lamented the situation, asked God for help, and begged for God's great Name to be made known in the earth.
This is such a relevant psalm even for the times in which we live today.
Pastor Geoff preaches this psalm and shows how David found comfort in the Lord & praised the LORD as he went off to battle. Even though we may not be waging war in literal flesh-and-blood battles each day, every believer IS in fact in a war -- a real war, with a relentless & strong enemy.
Yet Jesus Christ has the victory! So how can believers prepare for and wage war with this enemy?
Pastor Geoff preaches on evangelism from John 4 and looks at how Jesus interacts with the Samaritan woman at the well in Sychar. How does Jesus share the gospel? What does He do? How does He proclaim Truth? What does He say?
Lessons on EVANGELISM (sharing the good news) as we learn from Jesus...
Believe in God’s Providence (1-6)
Initiate the conversation (7-9)
Speak of the glorious gospel (10-14)
Expose the heart-sins (15-18)
Reveal who God Really is (19-24)

"How to Profit Devotionally Thru the Rigors of Seminary"
