In this 15-minute message, Pastor Geoff provides a number of reasons why believers must engage in the ongoing, never-ending, thrilling study of the Person of God.
1. Because God deserves to be adored and worshiped.
2. Because it drives us to the cross.
3. Because it compels us to proclaim the gospel to the lost.
4. Because it guards us from idolatry (thinking about God wrongly)
5. Because it is the unshakable foundation where joy is found.
In this sermon, Pastor Geoff exposits Psalm 49 and shows the folly of trusting in money. Here, he illustrates the foolishness of relying upon the transitoriness of money and the greater object that believers must rely on — the glorious gospel of redemption.
