How does Christ encourage the staggering faith of the disciples? After speaking of his death, the disciples are baffled and confused. So what does Jesus do and how does he comfort them?
1. the Savior PROMISES his glory
2. the Savior UNVEILS his glory
3. the Savior is AFFIRMED in his glory
4. the Savior SUFFERS before his glory
This sermon extols the design of God for mothers in the context of the home so that they would embrace His calling upon their lives to be workers at home, diligent in teaching the children, and respectful to their husbands.
Motherhood is not a hobby; it's a calling. It's the noblest of callings that God gives to women in the context of their home. God's plan for mothers is that they busy themselves in the home by diligently teaching their children the Word of God, the gospel of Christ, and the sacred writings which are able to give the wisdom that leads to salvation through faith in Jesus Christ.
This sermon provides 4 privileges of motherhood.
"Elders Are Disqualified If They Affirm Homosexuality & 'Gay-Christians'"
In this podcast we study this statement: ELDERS ARE DISQUALIFIED IF THEY LEGITIMIZE ‘GAY-CHRISTIANS’ AND HOMOSEXUALITY
Titus 1.8 — elders are qualified if they are “loving what is good”
What does that mean?
What is good? GOD is the highest good
What is good? TRUTH is the revelation of good
What is good? CHRIST is the quintessential good
What is good? the LOVE OF CHRIST and the GOSPEL OF CHRIST is good
what is good? TO HATE EVIL and PURSUE RIGHTEOUSNESS IS GOOD.
In this sermon, Pastor Geoff shows from Isa 19 why Judah should *NOT* trust in Egypt for deliverance (from the coming invasion of Assyria):
1. Because Egypt will soon be judged by your God! (1-15)
2. Because Egypt will soon be trusting in your God! (16-25)
This remarkable chapter provides clarity on God's plan for the nations -- even Egypt! -- so that they will, one day in the future eschaton, be brought into the "people of God" by saving faith in the Lord Jesus Christ and God will include them and welcome them in the kingdom worship (Rev 20; Isa 2.2-4; Isa 11)! What a great God & what wideness in His saving mercies!

We make it our commitment to preach for change...
Preaching that changes souls
Preaching that changes lives
Preaching that changes marriages
Preaching that changes churches
Preaching that changes evangelism
Preaching that changes societies

"Drowning in the Darkness of Despair: Battling Depression with God's Sufficient Word"
In this sermon, Pastor Geoff preaches on the darkest and saddest psalm in the Psalter. There is little hope offered in this psalm. The author drowns in the dark despair of depression. So, how does one cope with this? How does the rest of biblical revelation aid us in our pursuit for joy in God?
God has given a whole Bible to make a whole Christian. Listen to how to fight depression with God's sufficient Word in this sermon.
"Dreaming for Love & the Arrival of the Wedding Day!"
In this sermon, Pastor Geoff shows how the psalmist models how to pray and praise as he is 'old and gray.' How can one use the golden years to fulfill the golden opportunity to transmitting biblical truth on to the next generation?
