Pastor Geoff gives counsel to all parents -- and fathers, particularly -- to hear the preached Word well and to impress them and apply them to their own hearts and lives and THEN to re-preach these truths to the children throughout the upcoming week.
Many illustrations and examples are given in this podcast.
May God graciously equip and help us to do this for His glory and for the good of our children.
Evangelism Class #4 - A Biblical Theology of Evangelism"
This sermon continues the verse by verse exposition through Ephesians. This week is Ephesians 6.19-20 which covers the concluding part of the "Armor of God!" But here, Paul requests prayer for himself as an ambassador in chains -- as he needs and desires boldness to speak the mystery of the gospel the right way.
So from this text, we learn 4 lessons as to how we can pray for missionaries.
1. Pray with specificity for missionaries.
2. Pray for gospel truth to fill their mouths.
3. Pray for boldness in declaring the exclusive gospel.
4. Pray that they'd be faithful to fulfill their mission.
Our desire for our missionaries:
1. KNOW the missionaries (by name)
2. GO for our missionaries (in prayer to the Throne of Grace)
3. SOW for our missionaries (thru regular financial giving)
4. GROW with our missionaries (encourage them, sustain them, encourage them)
"Zeal for Purity! Kill Works-Based Religion & False Worship"
In this message, Pastor Geoff exhorts all singles to a life of undistracted devotion to the Lord Jesus Christ. Singles should use this God-given, blessed season of life for undistracted devotion to God and undiminished service to others.
This message looks at Anna and her example in Luke 2. What can we learn about 'single-hood' from Anna's example?
This message encourages singles to look & gaze upon the ultimate Bridegroom, the Lord Jesus Christ!
Pastor Geoff preaches on the Garden of Gethsemane narrative when our Lord agonizes in prayer just hours before the cross.
In the Garden, he pours out His soul to the Father and begs that the "cup" may pass from Him. This message focuses on the glorious Savior that we worship -- he is a suffering Savior, a praying Savior, a compassionate Savior, and a praiseworthy Savior!
And he drank the cup -- the cup of God's almighty wrath -- for His people. He quenched God's thunderous wrath aimed at sinners! He took it all for us!
Consider this text and rest in God's great love for His people!
"Your Salvation: Accomplished Totally by God's Sovereign Love & Great Mercy!"
In this sermon, Pastor Geoff preaches on the glorious "BUT GOD" of the gospel. After all the bad news of our being 'dead in sin' (Eph 2.1-3), now Paul glories in the reality that GOD GIVES LIFE.
This message highlights the 3 main verbs of our section:
1. God made you alive
2. God raised you up
3. God seated you in heaven
After reading the entirety of Psalm 119, Pastor Geoff preaches on the final 8-verse stanza (tav, vv.169-176) and shows what a life of praising God looks like and how it must be according to the Word of God.
Listen to this message on praising God according to the Word.
