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!
"Great Forgiveness Received! Great Forgiveness Given!"
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!
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!
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.

2. ENJOY the glory of God
3. ANTICIPATE the glory of God

Pastor Geoff preaches this unit of Psalm 119 -- the unit of 8 verses, vv.33-40 -- and shows how God's Word gives the sufficient guidance so we can know His will.
-what is God's will for my life?
-who should I marry?
-what job should I take?
-where should I live?
Many of the questions of life demand good answers. The Word provides the biblical framework -- the parameters, the boundaries -- so that we pray fervently, trust the Scripture & rely on the Spirit of God to live within those boundaries.
When we're doing that, we're free to choose the desires of our hearts.
