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?

"How To Respond When People Verbally Attack & Malign You"
Pastor Geoff continues the verse-by-verse exposition through Psalm 119 and shows how this section addresses three of the ways that the Bible is often attacked today:
1) its CLARITY
2) its ADEQUACY
3) its COMFORT
In this stanza of 8 verses, the psalmist finds himself slandered, ridiculed, feeling alienated from this world & instead of sinking into despair (or, 'depression'), he soars in devotion.
This sermon provides 4 ways that you can soar in devotion to God's Word & not sink into despair/depression in the hard times.
