Monty Simao 2014Sermon Notes

Date: 12/31/2017

Preacher: Monty Simao, pastor

Key Text: Psalm 98

SBC logo 204x204Description:  While the Bible contains 150 Psalms, there is one that captures the true essence of all of them. And yet, if you didn’t know it, its title would fool you. Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, Pastor Monty Simao, in the wake of his son’s tragic death, leads us to Psalm 98 – because he was lead there. It’s a psalm that in just nine simple verses, lays out the very heart of worship and the great and wonderful God who is greatly to be praised.

December 24, 2017

Sermon Notes

Date: 12/24/2017

Preacher: Keith Barker, elder

Series: Advent, Christmas Eve

Key Text: Isaiah 7:14

SBC logo 204x204Description: “Virgin birth” – an expression people hear all around the world during Christmastime. But for people outside of Christianity – and sadly for far too many within it – they consider it a myth. Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, elder Keith Barker delivers a Christmas message that seeks to clearly and simply state the absolute essential need for Christ being born of a virgin.

Sacrifice of Praise [Hebrews 13:15]

Monty Simao 2014Sermon Notes

Date: 12/17/2017

Preacher: Monty Simao, pastor

Key Text: Hebrews 13:15

SBC logo 204x204Description: 

Host: Sacrifice and Praise.

Alter Ego: Wait a minute are we playing a game of opposites?

Host: No, but I can see what you mean. Because “sacrifice” sounds somber and costly.

Alter Ego: –And “praise” sounds joyful… and a lot easier than “sacrifice.”

Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, Pastor Monty Simao takes to the pulpit once again – following the fresh sting of the sudden loss of his son – and points out that when it comes to these two words, it’s not always one or the other, for the author of Hebrews tells us that we are to offer a sacrifice of praise. In fact, much of the New Testament describes the Christian life as the intersection between these two terms, where they not only meet but become intertwined into the very warp and woof of what it means to be a Christian.

God of Comfort [Psalm 119:1-176]

SBC frame line - current sermons

Monty Simao 2014Sermon Notes

Date: 12/03/2017

Preacher: Monty Simao, pastor

Key Text: Psalm 119

SBC logo 204x204Description: Psalm 119. It’s not a Psalm we usually go to when looking for comfort, but, ironically, it has more to say about comfort and affliction than any other Psalm.

Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, Pastor Monty Simao continues to preach in the aftermath of his son’s tragic death and points out that when you see a passage of affliction in the Bible, take heart in knowing that you are not far from comfort — for this pattern, of passages of comfort following passages of affliction, occurs over and over again… in almost every instance. God is the God of all comfort, and He comforts the afflicted.

When it comes to Psalm 119,  we often categorize it as a Psalm about the beauty of God’s word and statutes, but what we’ll find is that, consequently, it is also a Psalm about God’s great comfort.

No Room for Jesus [Luke 2:1-7]

December 25, 2016

Sermon Notes

Date: 12/25/2016

Preacher: Keith Barker, elder

Series: Advent, Christmas Morning

Key Text: Luke 2:1-7

SBC logo 204x204Description: 

“A Baby’s hands in Bethlehem were small and softly curled; but held within Their dimpled grasp the hope of all the world.”

– Leslie Savage

Merry Christmas! Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, Elder Keith Barker opens the Bible and shares with us that despite the efforts of Joseph and Mary to find suitable accommodations in Bethlehem, there was no room for Jesus.

Christmas is a festive time.  A happy time.  A family time. A time to remember Christmas’ past – perhaps as a child – when the wonder of the sounds and smells and singing of Jingle Bells warmed and filled your heart.  Sometimes though it’s easy to fill our hearts with everything BUT the main point: the marvelous birth of the Lord Jesus Christ.

How’s your heart? Do you have room for Jesus?

For Unto Us a Child is Born [Isaiah 9:1-7]

December 18, 2016

Monty Simao 2014Sermon Notes

Date: 12/18/2016

Preacher: Monty Simao, pastor

Series: Advent

Key Text: Isaiah 9:1-7

SBC logo 204x204Description: The birth announcement of Jesus was not a time of joyful anticipation… but anticipation in the midst of darkness, sin, and pain. Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast as we move towards Christmas this Advent Season, we are reminded that 700 years before the birth of Christ, the prophet Isaiah described the coming Messiah in terms that sounded too good to be true:

Not only will He be King, but He will rule with justice and righteousness; He will increase the nation; He will deliver us from our enemies and bring about a peace that will never end.  And His kingly titles shall be Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Eternal Father, and Prince of Peace.
