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!
"Guard Who You Imitate! John's Call to Be Careful Who You Follow!"
Geoff preaches and exhorts the young people to have nothing to do with the sinful cravings of this world but rather to have everything to do with the pursuit of godliness. He charges them to not walk away from the faith when times get tough, to cling to Christ, to discipline themselves for godliness and to appreciate and savor the gospel of Jesus Christ! Listen & apply this message!
Tommy Titcombe went to the Yagba people of Nigeria in the 20th century.
it was said of him: “He had his bible with him constantly. with passages from Isaaiha nd the Psalms well marked. His Bible was his constant companion; It was beside whatever chair he sat in, it was with him at his bestie, in the Cara nd everywhere he went.
He was a small man, but he had mountains of faith.”
