Monty Simao 2014Sermon Notes

Date: 10/31/2021

Preacher: Monty Simao, pastor

Series: Reformation Sunday

Key Text: Luke 24:13-27; John 2:13-22, 5:39-47

Description:

“Christ-Centered.”

It’s an adjective that has become more and more popular in recent years when describing any number of activities either in the church or in the lives of God’s people. And while this descriptor is helpful and often a necessary reminder, we usually don’t give credit where credit is due for this perspective in the Christian life.

Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, on this Reformation Sunday, Pastor Monty Simao takes some time to reflect on this term, because it’s one that involves the Reformers.

For as the Reformers returned to the authority of Scripture, they, also, began to see that Jesus, Himself, revealed Himself as the “scope” of all the Scriptures.

What this means is that the credit goes to Christ: for all of Scripture is “Christ-Centered” — it all points to Him, and therefore, Jesus is the target and the end of all revelation from God.

The Righteous Shall Live by Faith [Hebrews 10:35-39]

Monty Simao 2014Sermon Notes

Preacher: Monty Simao, pastor

Series: Hebrews

Key Text: Hebrews 10:35-39

Description:

What does it mean that the righteous shall live by faith?

Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, Pastor Monty Simao continues with our study in the book of Hebrews and explains that we often hear this phrase and immediately think it’s about the doctrine of justification… because Paul uses that expression to teach that we are saved by grace alone, through faith alone, in Christ alone.

But there is another part to it: Not only are we justified by faith, but we live and hope by faith as well.

In the darkest of days, the believer should live by faith, meaning that the people of God continue to trust in Him and cling to His promises even when distress and disaster have come to them.

Knowing not only that God is faithful and will not let their soul come to destruction, but also that Christ is coming to bring an end to all calamity in a final judgment that is so complete, it will right every wrong.

Remember the Former Days [Hebrews 10:32-35]

Monty Simao 2014Sermon Notes

Preacher: Monty Simao, pastor

Series: Hebrews

Key Text: Hebrews 10:32-35

Description:

Remember the “Good Ol’ Days”?

Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, Pastor Monty Simao continues with our study in the book of Hebrews and explains that when we encounter difficult times, it’s natural for us to remind ourselves of former days that were better — probably because we feel that doing so will give us the needed courage to face our current challenge.

The writer of Hebrews takes the opposite approach, though.  Instead of recalling former times of ease, he tells his readers to recall former times of hardship! … times of affliction and persecution.

Why?

Because when we remember God’s past faithfulness during trying times, we are encouraged to persevere…in the hope of our eternal reward.

Warning Against Apostasy [Hebrews 10:26-31]

Preacher: Monty Simao, pastor

Series: Hebrews

Key Text: Hebrews 10:26-31

Description:

WARNING: The only plan of salvation is hinged upon Jesus Christ.

Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, Pastor Monty Simao continues with our study in the book of Hebrews and reminds us that it is Christ’s perfect righteousness — and only His righteousness — that makes us acceptable to God.

Christ offered the perfect sacrifice of His own blood and it was through His blood that the New Covenant was established. There is no salvation in any other covenant nor is there any other way to God.

Therefore, the one who repudiates the New Covenant has no sacrifice that can be offered to God to make himself acceptable. He has repudiated the only basis of receiving forgiveness, mercy, and grace and will only find wrath apart from Christ, and it is a terrifying thing to fall into the hands of the Living God.

Key Text: Hebrews 10:19-25

Description:

While the Gospel is good news about what Christ has done and not good news about what we have done, it does have ramifications on what we do.

Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, Pastor Monty Simao continues with our study in the book of Hebrews and explains that these changes in our life are the fruit of regeneration — brought about by God.

…And yet in a practical way we are encouraged to pursue this fruit by pursuing Christ and asking ourselves:

“How then shall I live in light of what Christ has done for me?”
