Pastor Geoff preaches at the CFBC Retreat with the theme on being "In Christ." This session covers the believer's relationship with God and it specifically examines the topic of God's adoption of the believer.
In this message, Pastor Geoff continues the Family Bible Hour class on the "CFBC Distinctives". This message focuses on the majesty of God, the awful (=archaic English for dreadful, awe-inspiring, majestic, fearful) majesty of God.
Exodus 19-20 serve as the text of showing how holy, majestic, and powerful God is. We must elevate our thoughts, our mind, our heart, and our worship to God who rightly sits on heaven's throne.
This profound and significant text of Jesus' baptism signifies the divine credentials and the divine approval for Christ's ministry.
The baptism of Christ was one of the last acts in His private life before he launched the public ministry. In this text, Jesus is baptized by John in the Jordan, the Spirit of God comes upon Christ and empowers Him for ministry, and the Father thunders out of heaven that Jesus is in fact the Beloved Son in whom God is well-pleased.
Old Testament allusions and texts abound in this brief text. Listen to this sermon & strive to emulate Christ as a man of prayer and a man fully dependent on the Spirit of God.
