Pastor Geoff preaches on God-Centered Worship:
What are elements of God-Centered Worship?
1. ascribing praise to God
2. remembering the works of God
3. warning sinners of the wrath of God
4. refocusing on the sovereignty of God
5. resolving to walk obediently before God
Psalm 88 is the prayer of Heman the Exrahite as he prays himself through the hardest and toughest times in life. Interestingly, this is the most depressing psalm in the Psalter as it ends on a hopeless, dark, and sour note. Listen and hear how the psalm relates to today and how you can benefit from this immensely useful psalm.
Pastor Geoff teaches on living in light of the Lord's coming. We must be observant of the signs of the times and we must always be on the alert and watchful so that the day of His coming does not take people by surprise.
Let all God's people heed the words of Christ and be alert, sober, ready and anticipating His soon-return!
In this sermon, Pastor Geoff continues the series on the gospel-centered family. Here, he preaches on how singles (both the young not-yet-marrieds, those twenty/thirty-somethings and widows and those who are divorced) can maximize their singleness for "undistracted devotion to the Lord" (1 Cor 7:35).
A number of very practical points are brought out in this sermon. Listen & apply the text!
Psalm 89 explodes with praise & jubiliation because God is eternally faithful and loyally loving to His covenant that He made with David (2 Samuel 7). This ultimately finds fulfillment in Jesus Christ — and will be yet fulfilled when Christ returns in power & glory and rules in righteousness over Israel from Zion as the 'Lord our Righteousness'.
There are loads of hope and oceans of covenantal mercy contained in this psalm. Read it. Believe it. And hope in God's faithful love!
Pastor Geoff preaches the gospel to the folks living at the Senior Living facility in St Louis, MO and shows the folly of pride and judgment that will come upon all the arrogant who reject Christ!
Listen to this message on pride & how Christ is the Humble One who came and died for His own! Repent & follow Him!
"Guard From Violent Influences & Dangerous Companions!"
Pastor Geoff preaches the text from Philippians 3:17-19 as Paul pastorally exhorts the congregation to guard who they follow and to emulate him as he pursued Jesus Christ (v.17).
Then in verses 18-19 Paul weeps as he considers the lost -- enemies of the cross of Christ! He describes them:
-their end is destruction
-their god is their appetite
-they glory in their shame
-their mind is on earthly things
O let us weep for the lost & pursue them with loving, urgent passion & plead with them -- earnestly warn them! -- to turn from sin and to trust in Christ to escape everlasting torment!
