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.

Monty Simao 2014Sermon Notes

Date: 11/26/2017

Preacher: Monty Simao, pastor

Key Text: 2 Corinthians 4

SBC logo 204x204Description: How is it that the Christian can be devastated and yet hopeful at the same time? How is it that at the point when we are weakest is also the point at which we are strongest? 

Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, Pastor Monty Simao preaches in the aftermath of losing his son to a brutal horseriding accident and shows us, in the midst of that, that the Apostle Paul answers these questions in the book of 2 Corinthians; and within it we find more beauty in the Gospel for it is Good News even in times like this.

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

Keith Barker 2014Sermon Notes

Date: 11/19/2017

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.

Monty Simao 2014Sermon Notes

Date: 11/12/2017

Preacher: Monty Simao, pastor

Series: Genesis

Key Text: Genesis 34

SBC logo 204x204Description: It’s one of the ugliest chapters in the first book of Bible, and yet God  sometimes uses negative examples to teach.

Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, Pastor Monty Simao continues with our study in the book of Genesis where we witness humanity’s stench of sin open for inspection in chapter 34. For in this passage we are reminded that even the patriarchs failed and compromised, and that, shamefully, as it happened, the sons of Israel missed the beauty of the covenant that was right before them – turning, instead, what God called sacred into what could only be described as savage.

Contend Earnestly for the Faith (Reformation 500) [Jude 1:3-7]

Monty Simao 2014Sermon Notes

Date: 10/29/2017

Preacher: Monty Simao, pastor

Series: Reformation Sunday

Key Text: Jude 3-7

SBC logo 204x204Description: On October 31, 1517, Martin Luther took out a hammer and nailed 95 theses to the castle church door in Wittenberg – an act that would catalyze debate and usher in radical change in the church.

Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, Pastor Monty Simao takes a moment to recognize this significant milestone in church history: the 500th anniversary of the Protestant Reformation. Indeed, the reformers of yesteryear have left us with a great body of knowledge about God and the church and the state of man; but it leaves us wondering if any tasks remain. Is there anything left for us to do?

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.
