Pastor Geoff teaches Song of Solomon 5 and shows how every relationship (marriage, especially!) has conflict & maturation as it grows. In this chapter, we see this progression:
1. Conflict in the marriage
2. Growth in the marriage
This chapter also has many applications for the Bride of Christ to speak well of, be eager to commune with, and delight heartfully in the glorious Bridegroom, Jesus Christ!

Pastor Geoff open air preaches on the campus of Southern Illinois University. After shortly preaching on Romans 5, Pastor Geoff encounters a young man, Greg, and shares the entire gospel with him and pleads with him to repent and believe in Christ.
"True Christians Abide in Christ & Bear Much Fruit!"
Pastor Geoff teaches on a very important unit of Scripture when Jesus, our Lord, sets forth the terms of discipleship. He lays down the requirements for ALL of His disciples. These aren't just the qualifications for the missionaries, or the pastors. Rather, these are the terms that Christ gives for all those who wish to be Christians.
Listen to this message & count the cost! Salvation is free! But it'll cost you everything!
Pastor Geoff continues the verse by verse exposition and preaches on TRUE GREATNESS. The Lord Jesus has a discussion with the Apostles in a house in Capernaum.
In this text, we see 2 extremely important lessons for all of us:
1. True greatness is found in being SERVANT OF ALL (vv.33-37)
2. True greatness is found in REJECTING COMPETITIVE ATTITUDES (v.38-41)
Pastor Geoff open air preaches the gospel and shows what biblical marriage is and how God defines marriage. He shows that this is a pointer to the relationship between Christ & His Bride, the Church.
"True Repentance Is Turning from & Forsaking Sin!"
Pastor Geoff preaches Psalm 85 and shows that God's mercy is expressed throughout the entire psalm — in the past, in the present, and in the future.
True revival is a work of God the Spirit where He sovereignly, supernaturally, and graciously brings "new life" and "vitality" to His people which then spreads to the unconverted because of their witness.
Psalm 134 is the last of the 15 'songs of ascents' (Psalms 120-134) which was the pilgrim's mini-hymnal that they would sing as they traveled from their homes to Zion for the 3 pilgrimage festivals (Passover, Booths, Pentecost).
In Psalm 134, we are told to 'bless the LORD.' This psalm teaches us about true worship.
In this sermon we learn about:
the PREEMINENCE of worship
the PRAISE of worship
the PEOPLE of worship
the PURITY of worship
the POSTURE of worship
the PLACE of worship
the PERSON of worship
the PATH of worship
May God awaken His people today as to the unspeakable privilege and the glorious duty of worshiping Him in spirit and truth.
Pastor Geoff exposits Isaiah 37:1-13 in this sermon when Sennacherib sends the Rabshakeh to Jerusalem to threaten and blaspheme Hezekiah and Yahweh
Isa 36 is the SITUATION
Isa 37 is the REACTION
In this section, we see 3 responses we must have for our good and for God's great glory when enemies attack and difficult times invade:
1. SEEK YOUR GOD!
2. STAND ON GOD'S PROMISES!
3. STRENGTHEN YOUR HEART!
Pastor Geoff preaches the gospel of Jesus Christ from Psalm 3 at the Senior Living home in St Louis, Missouri to many older folks. This message calls the hearers to:
1. Pray to God
2. Trust in God
3. Hope in God
For the Lord Jesus Christ is Savior because salvation belongs to the LORD!
In this sermon, Geoff Kirkland preaches Psalm 40 & shows how David trusted in God and how he prayed to God in times of hardship.
Hebrews 10 quotes Psalm 40 and applies the verses directly to Jesus. Hear how Jesus fulfilled the Law perfectly & how His perfect obedience secured his perfect, once for all sacrifice in the place of sinners.
