Scandia Host: Have you ever sat under a starry night sky and marveled at the billions of tiny lights?

Alter Ego: Oh yeah!

Scandia Host: Have you ever wondered how it is that the sun and moon work out their yearly schedules with such clocklike precision?

Alter Ego: And how the tides work? And why birds migrate? And how magnets do there “thing”?

Scandia Host: That I don’t know. But I do know, that if you’re honest, it’s pretty hard to deny that Someone wonderfully powerful and amazing is in charge of our universe.

Alter Ego: That’s for sure.

Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, Elder Keith Barker opens the Bible in a humble effort to expose our limited minds to the awe and wonder and magnificence of our God.

Three Ways God Speaks to Us [Psalm 19:1-14]

Keith Barker 2014Sermon Notes

Date: 01/07/2018

Preacher: Keith Barker, elder

Key Text: Psalm 19

SBC logo 204x204Description:

Alter Ego: Believing in God is utter nonsense. It’s ridiculous! Anyone who does has obviously checked his intelligence at the door. I mean how can someone believe in a God they can’t even see?

Scandia Host: That was pretty good.

Alter Ego: Thanks, I’ve been practicing.

Scandia Host: Sadly, though, too many people believe this way — so much so that they have their own groups.

Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, Elder Keith Barker opens the book of Psalms to show us that  even the heavens declare His name. They speak of His Glory, His Greatness, His Goodness, and His Grace. Nevertheless, even though God is shouting His existence into creation, a person with perfect vision can still be too blind to see it.

Three Ways God Speaks to Us

  1. Heavens
  2. Hands
  3. Heart

Challenge: 

If you are one who is unsure of God, consider seeking to know Him. Open a Bible to the book of John, ask God to reveal Himself, and read the text with an open mind. It might just prove to be the most exciting decision of your life.

Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner? [Luke 11:37-44]

Preacher: Keith Barker, elder

Key Text: Luke 11:37-44

SBC logo 204x204Description: Guess who’s coming to dinner?

Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, Elder Keith Barker points out that many people — both today and in the days that Jesus walked the earth — believe that they are living lives in a manner pleasing to God. …But if Jesus were to come to your house for dinner, would He commend you or correct you? For the Pharisees of Jesus’ time, because they led such extremely disciplined lifestyles, their answer (at least for them) would be obvious. In today’s message we’re privy to such a dinner conversation, in which the Lord brings these very religious men face to face with the Truth.

Any Bush Will Do [Exodus 3:1-6]

Keith Barker 2014Sermon Notes

Date: 10/22/2017

Preacher: Keith Barker, elder

Key Text: Exodus 3:1-6

SBC logo 204x204Description: It’s difficult sometimes to say “no” to an obvious need. But we must remember that needs are never calls. Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, Elder Keith Barker opens the book of Exodus to remind us that our strength comes from the Lord. We are to draw our strength only from Him… not ourselves. For when we depend upon our own humanity to energize and power us, we surely cascade to destruction. No, a need – in and of itself – is not a call; rather, a call is something that comes from God… to meet a need.

Following Jesus [Psalm 23:1-3]

SBC frame line - current sermons
Keith Barker 2014Sermon Notes

Date: 08/20/2017

Preacher: Keith Barker, elder

Key Text: Psalm 23:1-3

SBC logo 204x204Description:

“How’s a person supposed to make good decisions!?? I’m trying my best… but a little help from Jesus would be nice.”

Many Christians have little to no confidence that they have Jesus overseeing their daily activities – the result, they make decisions which are contrary to a life of peace. Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, Elder Keith Barker opens the Bible to the well-known Psalm 23, where we learn that, indeed, we are like sheep… often wanting our own way even when it’s the wrong way. But what we learn from God’s Word is that we can at any time ask for wisdom, and He promises to guide and provide… just like a good shepherd.
