Preacher: Keith Barker, elder

Key Text: Psalm 46:1-10

Description: 

Average Guy: I’m trying to listen to God, but I just don’t hear Him.

Host: Shhhh…. In our busy lives it’s often a challenge to slow down enough to actually come to a full stop and listen. For what we’ll find is that our desire and ability to listen to God is in direct correlation with who we consider Him to be.

Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, Elder Keith Barker shares that too often we as Christians neglect the wonderful access and fellowship opportunities we have with our and Lord and Savior, because we fail to follow the clear and simple instructions found in Psalm 46:10:

“Be still and know that I am God.”

The Holiness of God [Exodus 15:11]

Keith Barker 2014Sermon Notes

Date: 11/11/2018

Preacher: Keith Barker, elder

Key Text: Exodus 15:11

Description: The cross: a Christian symbol evoking comfort and love for many, many people. But for some, it stands as a graphic warning sign declaring danger ahead.

SBC logo 204x204

Today on Scandia Bible Church podcast, Elder Keith Barker exhorts that the cross is SHOUTING that God hates our sin — so much so that He sent His only begotten Son, Jesus, to pay the price for it by hanging on the cross. His blood was a ransom for us — freeing us from an eternity separated from Him, our loving Heavenly Father.

 

Yes, the cross serves as a merciful word of comfort to Christians of God’s finished work but, to the unsaved, a stark shout of danger.

A Day in the Life of Jesus [Mark 1:29-39]

Sermon Notes

Date: 10/21/2018

Preacher: Kris Baines, guest pastor

Key Text: Mark 1:29-39

Description: If a TV crew followed you around for 24 hours, would it be worth watching?

Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, we welcome to our pulpit New Zealand Pastor, Kris Baines, who shows that we can learn a lot from reviewing the day in the life of someone… especially when that someone is Jesus Christ.

SBC logo 204x204

For when we review a 24 hour period of Jesus’ ministry in the book of Mark, we find Him to be a man of compassion, a man of service, a man of prayer, and a man of purpose. And that, in turn, encourages us to be the same… in His strength, for His glory.

The Insanity of Christ [Philippians 1:21-30]

Sermon Notes

Date: 08/19/2018

Preacher: Colton Bennett, guest preacher

Key Text: Philippians 1:21-30

Description: 

“Now am I beginning to be a disciple. May it only be that I attain unto Jesus Christ, come fire and flood, grapplings with beasts, cuttings and manglings, wrenching of bones, hacking of limbs, crushing of my whole body…. The farthest bounds of the universe shall profit me nothing…. Him I seek, who died on our behalf; Him I desire, who rose again for our sake.”

— Ignatius of Antioch (35-107, earliest post-New Testament martyr)

There’s no doubt that Ignatius of Antioch was “all in” for Christ. How about you? Are you all in?SBC logo 204x204

Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, we’re pleased to welcome to our pulpit, guest preacher from Kentucky, and up-and-coming pastor-to-be, Colton Bennett… who describes himself as “a follower of Jesus, lover of Liberty, and passionate voice when the world is silent.” And though he’s only 19 years-old, he has the wisdom-filled insight that though we may all WANT to be “all in” for Christ, the truth is that none of us are… and that is PRECISELY why we need Jesus.

Holiness [1 Peter 1:13-16]

Keith Barker 2014Sermon Notes

Date: 08/12/2018

Preacher: Keith Barker, elder

Key Text: 1 Peter 1:13-16

Description: 

Do you remember the Susan B. Anthony dollar? …You know the one that looked like a quarter.

Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, Elder Keith Barker opens the Bible and draws our attention to a problem in America today: a lack of holiness.

Too often the church looks so much like the world, that those that are unsaved see no need to consider the claims of Jesus on their own lives. To them, they all look like quarters – but they’re really dollars. They don’t stand out because they’re lacking holiness.SBC logo 204x204

If by the saving grace of Jesus Christ you are now considered a “dollar”… act like one. Because as He clearly commands: “Be holy for I am holy.”

Enjoying His Presence in the Morning [1 Peter 2-3]

June 10, 2018

SBC frame line - current sermons
Keith Barker 2014Sermon Notes

Date: 06/10/2018

Preacher: Keith Barker, elder

Key Text: 1 Peter 2-3

Description: As the old saying goes, “If you are too busy for God, then you are too busy.

Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, Elder Keith Barker takes us to the book of 1 Peter to show us that too often we start our day on a run and never quite get time to talk to our Lord and Savior – leaving us with the sad reality that God is more interested in talking with us, than we are with Him.SBC logo 204x204

Our lack of a dedicated, disciplined, devotional time is perhaps the greatest hindrance to our growth as Christians. But our message reminds us that if we meet God each and every morning, we will experience a deeper, closer, and more wonderful relationship with our Lord… Our Lord who loves us so much that He was willing to die in our place.

The Secret of Gethsemane [Mark 14:32-42]

April 29, 2018

SBC frame line - current sermons
Keith Barker 2014Sermon Notes

Date: 04/29/2018

Preacher: Keith Barker, elder

Key Text: Mark 14:32-42

Description: “He plunged into a sinkhole of dreadful agony.” That’s how one Bible translation describes how Jesus felt during His prayer in the Garden of Gethsemane.

Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, Elder Keith Barker opens the book of Mark to explore this prayer that theologians have endlessly pondered. The King James translation says that while praying in the garden, Jesus was “sore amazed” – prompting Martin Luther to describe it as the most astonishing statement in the Bible. SBC logo 204x204

But all this agonizing stress seems out of context for Jesus, doesn’t it? After all, He is the God-man who spoke the universe into existence. But as we examine the situation, it becomes shamefully obvious that He did this for us. All this happened because of our sin. And because of His deep love for us, He surrendered His will and underwent the horrific experience. And then we realize, it’s not out of context for Him at all.
