Pastor Geoff preaches Luke 13:18-21 where Christ provides 2 parables (short stories with spiritual meaning):
1. the parable of THE MUSTARD SEED
2. the parable of LEAVEN
The simple point in these parables is this: the kingdom of God grows -- and it will grow -- till it reaches and permeates the world & nothing can stop or hinder this growth!
This message also covers what the kingdom of God, how the Old Testament & New Testament speak of this Kingdom & surveys the concept of the kingdom in Luke's gospel.
Listen to this message & be encouraged that God's Kingdom cannot be stopped!
"The King's Return in Judgment & the Kingdom Prayer for Mercy"
This sermon goes through Isaiah 7 --
1. Misplaced Trust (1-9)
2. Majestic Truth (10-16)
3. Miserable Trials (17-25)
Trust God! Don't trust in self or in others! But throw yourself on God & Him alone!
In this psalm, Pastor Geoff shows how Asaph pictures God as having a 'case' against His people for 2 ways they wrongly worship Him:
1. God indicts Israel for their formalistic (mindless, heartless, ritualistic) worship
2. God indicts Israel for their hypocritical worship
Pastor Geoff preaches through 1 Thessalonians 1 and exhorts the Christ Fellowship Bible Church congregation with this question: "What's the kind of church you wanna be a part of?" And 1 Thessalonians 1 provides a healthy template of a good, Christ-exalting church.
Listen to this message to hear the essential features of a church you wanna be a part of.
Pastor Geoff preaches the gospel on the college campus of STL Community College. Then after he preaches, he engages the students with Q&A afterwards and then engages in personal conversations following that.
