Pastor Geoff preaches Psalm 118 and shows how believers must "give thanks" to the LORD for He is good & for His everlasting, covenant-keeping love.
Psalm 118, also, is Messianic in that it points to the coming Messiah, the Lord Jesus Christ. Psalm 118 is the song given to the nation of Israel to teach them how to respond when Messiah appears -- and that is exactly what happened when Jesus presented Himself as the Jewish Messiah during the "Triumphal Entry". Psalm 118 plays a very significant role during the final days of Jesus' life (the Passion week).
This sermon walks through the Passion Week and shows how Psalm 118 points to Jesus Christ as the "stone that was rejected" yet has become the "Corner Stone."

3. the GUARANTEE of the Spirit
4. the PRAISE of the Spirit
This sermon seeks to show how the Spirit dwells in and guarantees our future inheritance if we are 'IN CHRIST.' Worship this great God and adore His great name for His awesome salvation!

In this sermon, Pastor Geoff continues the exposition through Ephesians and begins a series on the Holy Spirit. God the Spirit works in and through His Word but never apart from His Word.
We must hear the word of truth, the gospel of our salvation, and then when we believe we are sealed with the Holy Spirit forever.
In this sermon, Geoff preaches Revelation 11 to the men at the Sunshine Mission shelter in St Louis. He shows how God always has a witness to proclaim the greatness of His Name. Sinners reject, rebel & disobey the proclaimed Word. Saints receive, obey, and submit to Jesus Christ!
Geoff exhorted the men to bow the knee in surrendering to Jesus Christ now before it's too late and they bow the knee to Jesus Christ before He casts them into hell.
Winter Retreat Session #2. Pastor Geoff preaches from Romans 9 on God's sovereignty in electing dead sinners unto salvation. If all humans are enemies of God, rebellious against God, rejecting God, dead in transgression and sin, and children of the devil, then they could not ever choose God; therefore, the Scriptures reveal that God sovereignly chooses a particular group to be vessels of His grace.
