Preacher: Josh Peglow, pastor

Key Text:1 Thessalonians 5:14-15

Description:

In order for God’s Church to function as He intends, we have to CARE.

Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, Pastor Josh Peglow brings us a message from Paul’s letter to the Thessalonians exhorting the congregation to CARE about each other’s walk with God.

Paul wasn’t addressing the unruly, fainthearted, or weak…

…but addressing those who were in position to help those people — to notice, come alongside, invest in, and care for those very people around them that were struggling — giving wisdom from above.

Praying Through Trials [Psalm 27:1-14]

Sermon Notes

Date: 08/28/2022

Preacher: Josh Peglow, pastor

Key Text: Psalm 27

Description:

Though a host encamp against me,
My heart will not fear;
Though war arise against me… I shall be confident.

Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, Pastor Josh Peglow takes the pulpit to share a Psalm, a prayer, a very raw and vulnerable cry to God from King David. And while this psalm demonstrates fearless trust, courageous confidence, and unwavering faith… it also shows us something else: David is scared.

“Please don’t leave me Lord.”

It’s hard to imagine someone of his stature feeling this way… and yet, he does. And by God’s grace it is recorded for us as an example to pattern and learn from — an encouraging imperative.

For as David concludes:

I would have despaired unless I had believed that I would see the goodness of the Lord,
In the land of the living.

Wait for the Lord;
Be strong and let your heart take courage;
Yes, wait for the Lord.

Sermon Notes

Date: 07/17/2022

Preacher: Josh Peglow, pastor

Key Text: 1 Peter 1:3-5

Description:

I could not have begun to love thee hadst thou not

first loved me,

or been willing unless thou hadst first made me so.

O that such a crown should fit the head of

such a sinner!

…And so goes —but a stanza of— a rich, Truth-soaked Puritan Prayer.*

Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, in his first official sermon as pastor, Josh Peglow takes to the pulpit to illuminate a marvelous hope — a marvelous truth —  we find in scripture. 

It’s a truth and hope that shows us that God is to be blessed for His work in bringing about an unassailable salvation to His heavenly people. 

And the Puritan Prayer? Well, it encapsulates this reality beautifully:

Let thy love draw me nearer to thyself,

wean me from sin, mortify me to this world,

and make me ready for my departure hence.

Secure me by thy grace as I sail across this
