Sermon Notes

Date: 03/27/2022

Preacher: Josh Peglow, guest preacher

Key Text: Jeremiah 17:5-8

Description:

Thus says the Lord,

Cursed is the man who trusts in mankind

And makes flesh his strength,

And whose heart turns away from the Lord.

For he will be like a bush in the desert

And will not see when prosperity comes,

But will live in stony wastes in the wilderness,

A land of salt without inhabitant. [Jeremiah 17:5-6]

Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, Josh Peglow returns to our pulpit and opens the book of Jeremiah… a book that addresses a point we all struggle with: putting our trust in man versus God.

Why?

Because Jeremiah struggled with it too.

For Jeremiah exhorts that the Lord says:

Blessed is the man who trusts in the Lord

And whose trust is the Lord.

For he will be like a tree planted by the water,

That extends its roots by a stream

And will not fear when the heat comes;

But its leaves will be green,

And it will not be anxious in a year of drought

Nor cease to yield fruit. [Jeremiah 17:7-8]

Monty Simao 2014Sermon Notes

Date: 03/20/2022

Preacher: Monty Simao, pastor

Series: Hebrews

Key Text: Hebrews 11:39-40

Description:  

Avg Guy Sportscaster: [sport theme music] Welcome everybody to the Big Game! We’re in the Hall of Faith where the Old Covenant Saints will face the New Covenant Saints… Who will win?… It’s anybody’s call… should be pretty close.

SBC Host: Hold on! [sport music stops]

Avg Guy Sportscaster: Oh, do you want to be my color commentator?

SBC Host: No! This isn’t a game!!

Avg Guy Sportscaster: Are you kidding me?? This is the game of games! It’s like the “Bible Pro Bowl!”

SBC Host: What?? [Pause. Has an idea.] Wait. Hold on a second…. Keep going and take my opening lines. I need to look up something.

Avg Guy Sportscaster: [sport music resumes] All right!… Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, Game Official and Pastor, Monty Simao, is on the field to continue our study in the book of Hebrews and to oversee these final verses in the Hall of Faith. And like I said, it doesn’t appear that one side has an advantage over the other since both sides of believers — both Old Testament and New Testament — must still look to God in faith.

SBC Host: Okay I’ve got it! Stop the music. [sport music stops] …Ok. While I’m not technically betting here, I’m willing to give up my place in line for common meal and give the advantage to the New Covenant Saints.

Avg Guy Sportscast: You seem pretty confident there. Do you have some inside information?

SBC Host: Let’s just say that got a tip from the author of Hebrews. And while the Old Covenant Saints are to be revered, [sport music fades back in] the New Covenant Saints have got “something better.”

Monty Simao 2014Sermon Notes

Date: 03/13/2022

Preacher: Monty Simao, pastor

Series: Hebrews

Key Text: Hebrews 11:30-38

Description:  

SBC Host: If you were going to put a list together of heroes of the faith —real examples of faith — would your list include Samson, Jephthah, and Rahab?

Avg Guy: Are you kidding me?? Samson’s a womanizer. Jephthah — “The King of Rash” — needs to slow down and think before he acts. And Rahab… [whispering] she’s a harlot!!

SBC Host: Yep.

Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, Pastor Monty Simao draws to the end of our Hall of Faith Deep Dive, as we move through the book of Hebrews, and points out that most of us wouldn’t compile a list with those names… and yet, God did.

And to the degree that we are surprised… is the degree to which we still don’t understand faith.

Avg Guy: oh.

Faith Passes Through the Waters [Hebrews 11:27-29]

SBC frame line - current sermons

Monty Simao 2014Sermon Notes

Date: 03/06/2022

Preacher: Monty Simao, pastor

Series: Hebrews

Key Text: Hebrews 11:27-29

Description:

Avg Guy: Faith prevents the difficulties of life, for a lack of it is sure to bring trials and tribulations. 

[sfx: buzzer]

SBC Host: That’s not what the Bible teaches.

Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, Pastor Monty Simao continues with our study in the book of Hebrews and our focus on Moses in the Hall of Faith.

Faith looks to God. It doesn’t prevent the difficulties in life, but it does overcome them.

SBC logo 204x204

Often, God uses difficulties to strip away our self-reliance and silence our prideful hearts, and it is in this silence that faith looks to God in trust — knowing that even when we can’t see His hand, we can trust His heart.
