Pastor Geoff exposits James 3:1-5 --
Watch your tongue and guard your words... 2 Lessons for us:
1. Watch O Teachers -- You'll have a strict judgment (verses 1-2)
2. Watch Your Tongue -- It's Small But Powerful (verses 3-5)
"Watch How You Live as a Believer--God Takes Sin Seriously!"
Pastor Geoff open-air preaches at the St Louis Central West End Metrolink station and heralds Jeremiah 14:10. The major points are that God knows all things (including our hearts), that we are all guilty of iniquity, and that God will call every person to account. The only way to be forgiven is through Christ.
Pastor Geoff exposits Isaiah 30. In this long, detailed and very theologically rich chapter, he pulls put three very important lessons for us so we do not trust in the earthly comforts.
1. Refuse worldly securities
2. Receive God's Word
3. Regain Hopeful Perspective
Pastor Geoff continues the verse by verse exposition through 2 John. And in this sermon, Pastor Geoff provides three supremely important imperatives that we draw from verse 8 as John pastorally & urgently pleads with believers to be on guard.
1. Be watchful! (Be on guard!)
2. Be constant! (Don't lose ground!)
3. Be eternal-minded! (Serve Christ for the full reward!)
May the Lord help us to be strong, steadfast, and vigilant in guarding and keeping the Truth!
Pastor Geoff teaches on the believers' use of spiritual gifts. It's not so much how to find your gift and discovering which gift you have as much we find in the New Testament to be (1) involved in your local church, and (2) be obeying the commands given to all believers (=the 'one anothers'), and (3) then seeing how God especially gives you joy in particular areas of service for the edification of the flock.

Psalm 80 — Urgently Pleading for Revival!
refrain: O GOD restore us - v.3, 7, 19
Restore us O God: for You Are Powerful! (1-3) because of who YOU are
Restore us O God: for We Are Ridiculed (4-7) because of who WE are
Restore us O God: for We Are Impotent (8-19) because of WHAT we are
This sermon covers the rest of the opening greeting from John to the chosen "lady" and her children (vv.1-3). This sermon provides 2 more lessons on being a church full of love & committed to the Truth!
Pastor Geoff continues the verse-by-verse exposition through the Gospel of Luke. Luke 12:1-13:9 is one unit -- it's a traveling narrative as Jesus speaks to thousands of people as He journeys in Judea.
In this text, Luke 13:1-9, Jesus calls all those who hear Him to repent for if they do not they will perish!
This message speaks of the DEMAND for repentance (unless you repent you'll perish) and the DESCRIPTION of genuine repentance (fruitbearing & the parable of the barren fig tree).
Listen to this exposition & ask yourself: "have I genuinely repented?" Turn from your wicked ways and live!
