"Bad (Disqualifying) Leadership: Diotrephes, Part 1 [Pride, Greed, Slander]"
This sermon covers the section of Jesus' interaction with his family and his foes (Jewish leaders) around 3 headings:
1. ACCUSATION - Jesus works only by Satan's power (20-22)
2. ILLUSTRATION - A kingdom divided cannot stand (23-27)
3. CONDEMNATION - Blaspheming the Spirit is unforgivable (28-30)
A. The SINS that can be forgiven!
B. The SIN that cannot be forgiven
"Astonishing Realities that Belong to You If You're 'In Christ'!"
In this sermon, Pastor Geoff concludes the expositional study through the book of Joshua and calls each person to answer what Joshua says: "choose for this day whom you will serve."
No one can serve two masters. We must believe in Christ and serve Him wholeheartedly.
One of the applications of this text is family worship. Geoff shows how there are three elements involved: singing, reading the Word, and praying.
He deals with the biblical foundations of family worship, compelling motivations to do family worship, practical outworkings of family worship, and he answers common excuses or objections to family worship.
Pastor Geoff continues the exposition through Luke's Gospel and here he focuses on Anna (2:36-38) — a propetess who served God until the age of 84, even as a widow. She worshiped with passion, with hunger, with prayer, with fastings, with evangelism.
She was a woman after God's own heart. This character, Anna, models not only for all women but for every senior saint (the 'aged') how to live in undistracted worship & undiminished praise in the elderly years.
