Pastor Geoff preaches on the active obedience of Jesus Christ as he submitted to the Father & obeyed the Law in 2 specific ways in this text:
1. He obeyed in His circumcision
2. He obeyed in His consecration
In the piety of His parents, the Lord Jesus obeyed the Law and fulfilled all righteousness. He was born under the Law to redeem those under the Law.
And all of His righteousness is credited to the believer's account through faith at the moment of salvation.
This is part 2 of the series on the "Offices of Jesus Christ" -- this sermon covers Christ as your Priest. The sermon covers Jesus as your:
1. permanent priest
2. propitiating priest
3. praying priest
4. pure priest
5. perfect priest
6. preeminent priest
In this "Shepherd's Moment of Equipping," Pastor Geoff equips the CFBC flock on what the Bible says about homosexuality -- behavior and desires -- from the Old Testament. This teaching provides clear exposition, word studies, and hope found in Jesus Christ alone.
1. the beautiful PLAN OF GOD (=marriage)
2. the blasphemous PERVERSION AGAINST GOD (=homosexuality)
3. the beautiful PICTURE OF MARRIAGE (=a pointer to the union between Jesus Christ and His Bride, the Church)
Pastor Geoff preaches on the occasion of Jesus meeting the Samarian Woman at the well. In this moment, the Spirit of God allows and directs Jesus to know the woman's past. And here we see a glimpse into the omniscience of God, namely, the omniscience of Jesus Christ in this event.
"The Only Way to God: The Just Will Live By His Faith!"
Pastor Geoff preaches Habakkuk 2:4 on "The just will live by his faith" and then moves to Galatians 3:10-14 and shows how sinners can be justified before God by faith alone in Jesus Christ alone.
This message speaks about the meaning of faith, the sufficiency of Christ, the exclusivity of Christ, and the perfection of Christ's sacrifice.
This sermon was preached as a preparation for the Lord's Supper.
Pastor Geoff preaches at the homeless shelter in downtown St Louis, Missouri. He preaches on the exceeding and overwhelming love of God.
1. exceeding love
2. distinguishing love
3. glorifying love
4. purifying love
"The Panoramic View of the Christmas Story: Look & Wonder at Christ!"
Pastor Geoff preaches the gospel of salvation from 1 John 3 in showing the wide-angle, panoramic portrait of the Christmas story. From humanity's perilous condition of lawlessness, to Christ's coming as a human, sinless man, to His death on the cross in 'taking away sin', to His soon-coming again in power & glory, Pastor Geoff preaches 4 headings in this panoramic view of the Christmas story.
"The Parable of the Lost Sheep: The Happy Joy of God in the Salvation of Sinners!"
Pastor Geoff teaches on the parable of the 'lost sheep' -- and shows how this is an indictment against the Jewish leadership of the day since they couldn't be further from the heart of God that rejoices when God's people are saved in Christ.
But it also shows the great joy that God has when He seeks and saves His lost ones!
"The Parable of the Soils: How Do You Hear God's Word?"
Pastor Geoff Kirkland preaches Mark 4:1-20 on the well-known parable of the soils. The key to this parable is: "How do you hear God's Word?" Or, what do you do with what you've heard? How does it change you?
1. The Parable
2. The Principle
4 kinds of hearers of the word (the first 3 are lost & unconverted & only the last one is truly saved)
May God help you -- and me -- to be hearers of the Word rightly. One sermon rightly heard & applied is better than hearing 100 sermons with no application.
May God help us!
Pastor Geoff preaches on the section in Luke 11 where Jesus teaches His followers to be importunate (persistent) in prayer. Like Jacob, we should wrestle with God until He blesses us. Like the Syro-Phoenecian woman, we must humbly bow and beg God till He listens and answers. Like Elijah, we should pray earnestly and expectantly till God fulfills His promises. Like blind Bartimaeus, we should cry out (and cry out louder) until the Lord stops, hears us, and answers our plea.
We must urgently come to God and press our longings upon His heart until He answers us! Let us not grow discouraged or fainthearted. But let us be a people who pray with persistence!
Pastor Geoff preaches Luke 11:5-8 at the Grace Bible Conference hosted by Rockport Baptist Church in Arnold, MO.
This message centers on the theme of shepherding one another through persistently praying to God. Pastors, fathers, husbands, and leaders must remember to shepherd one another through persistently praying for one another.
Pastor Geoff preaches an advent 2015 sermon on Colossians 1:15-20 on the glorious Person and work of Jesus Christ.
This sermon text provides 5 massive realities about Jesus Christ â€”
1. Jesus is FULLY GOD
2. Jesus is POWERFUL CREATOR
3. Jesus is ACTIVE SUSTAINER
4. Jesus is SUPREME AUTHORITY
5. Jesus is the ONLY SAVIOR
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.
"The Pillars of CFBC to Support the Truth of the Word"
In this teaching, Geoff examines the 5 pillars of CFBC and individually goes through them to review & remind all of us what CFBC must be about to have a healthy, God-centered, Word-saturated, Christ-exalting church.
THE FIVE PILLARS
1. An all-encompassing passion for the glory of God.
2. The expository preaching of the Word of God.
3. The zealous pursuit of consistent holiness of life.
4. The continuous evangelizing of the local community.
5. The global vision to proclaim the gospel to the nations.
Pastor Geoff preaches this psalm and shows what a true longing for God is like. How does one have such a zeal for the Lord and for the worship of His holy name? How can one increase in his yearning for Christ & His gospel? How can a believer prepare for heaven — a world of perfect, Christ-centered worship?
Listen to this psalm as the portrait of a satisfied worshiper in God is shown.
