"Adoption: God Making Wretched Sinners into Welcomed Sons!"
Pastor Geoff preaches the gospel from Psalm 51 at the homeless shelter in downtown St Louis. He preaches Psalm 51 and shows how God's mercy is so great that even the worst of sinners can be forgiven:
1. Own your sin!
2. Confess your sin!
3. Turn from your sin!
4. Humble your heart!
May God grant forgiveness & grace to great sinners to magnify His greater grace!
Pastor Geoff provides a piece of counsel to all pastors/elders: "Be often and intimate and communing with Christ." The greatest need of our people is our personal holiness! Commune with your Savior often!
Pastor Geoff gives counsel to the young children (say, ages 6-13) and calls them to: "never underestimate how God can use young boys and girls to serve Him mightily and powerfully and globally." Consider Joseph, Daniel, King Joash, King Josiah, and Jesus as a 12-year old boy in the Temple. Live for Jesus!

"Aging to the Glory of God! Living a Forward-Tilted Life!"
Pastor Geoff begins the exposition through Psalm 119 and begins with the first stanza of 8 verses - the aleph stanza (all 8 verses begin with the first letter of the Hebrew alphabet, Aleph).
This stanza extols the joy and blessedness that comes to the man of God who commits himself to walk in the way of God and who is obsessed with diligently keeping God's laws!
The Bible is under extreme attack today by countless sides and yet the Bible is like a "Lion that will defend itself."
This opening portion of the psalm speaks to the joy that believers have in God's Word and the diligent obedience that we must have to His Word as well.
