Your Sorrow Will Be Turned into Joy!

April 20, 2014

Sermon Notes

Date: 04/20/2014, Easter Sunday

Preacher: Monty Simao, elder

Key Text: John 16:16-22; 20:1-31

Description:  In this sermon, we look at the promise Jesus made to His disciples in John chapter 16.  He told them that they would be filled with sorrow even as the world rejoices, but that He would turn their sorrow into Joy. Then we look at John chapter 20, to see the fulfillment of that promise and the benediction of peace that Christ pronounced upon His church on that first Easter Sunday and continues to pronounce upon His people today.

The Priest and the Filthy Robe

Sermon Notes

Date: 03/31/2013, Easter Sunday

Preacher: Monty Simao, elder

Key Text: Luke 24 and Zechariah 3:1-10

Description:  Easter Sunday, the resurrection of Christ, solves the problem of tension that existed among the Old Testaments prophets concerning the coming of the Messiah.  The prophets prophesied that the coming Messiah would be a suffering servant who would be scourged, smitten, beaten, and pierced and yet he would also be a conquering king.  How could these two apparent contradictions in description possibly be?  The answer is found in Easter.

“Today You Shall Be With Me in Paradise”

April 24, 2011

Sermon Notes

Date: 04/24/2011, Easter Sunday

Preacher: Monty Simao, elder

Key Text: Luke 23:39-43

Description:  Have you ever wondered if a person who had lived wickedly his whole life and was now on death row could be saved if he received Jesus? Well you don’t need to wonder because the Bible not only answers that question but gives us an account of that very thing. The Penitent thief on the cross who was crucified next to Jesus, gives us one of the clearest examples of Justification by grace thru faith.  This man did no good works. He was demonstrably evil, he was a criminal. He knew he was dying and he knew he deserved it.  Find out how this evil man saw his sin, saw his Savior, and then was assured of salvation!

From the Guttermost to the Uttermost

April 4, 2010

Sermon Notes

Date: 04/04/2010, Easter Sunday

Preacher: Monty Simao, elder

Key Text: 2 Samuel 9:1-13

Description: Though you might not think of looking for the Easter Story in the Old Testament, God tells it beautifully through the life of Mephibosheth — a life that was filled with tragedy and shame.  In the end, however, he was lifted out of his lowly position and given a place at the king’s table.

Listen in as Elder Monty Simao shows us how the story of Mephibosheth and King David parallels man and the King of Kings.
