Last week we looked at three ways in which we can listen to sermons to obtain the most benefit from them, and this week we look at five.

Sure listening can be hard work. …But unlike some other endeavors in this life, God will bless our efforts so that our sweat will reap a harvest of good to our souls.

May 17, 2020

SBC frame line - current sermons

Monty Simao 2014Sermon Notes

Date: 05/17/2020

Preacher: Monty Simao, pastor

Series: Christian Living, CoronaVirus

Key Text: Matthew 5

Description: Do you ever think about the fullness of the Ten Commandments when making decisions in life? 

…Or do you fall into the trap like the rich young ruler who viewed the Commandments only in the letter of the law and justified himself as having kept them his whole life?

SBC logo 204x204

Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, the corona confinement continues as Pastor Monty Simao preaches a message that reminds us that God’s Moral Law is not just words written on stone, but the means by which we learn what pleases Him.

The Decalogue is a guide to every decision we make and, often in confusing situations, is the very thing that brings clarity.

Notes:

The 3-Fold Use of the Law

  1. MIRROR — mirrors God’s righteousness and thereby our weakness
  2. CURB — commands and threatens; civil authority; fear of consequence
  3. GUIDE —tells of the things that please our Heavenly Father (Christian use only)

SBC Host: Woah! That’s a lot of C’s. Here’s one more: How ought the Christian think about and react to the world around us?

Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, Pastor Monty Simao preaches a message, as we continue to move through the Pandemic of 2020, that reminds us that what we believe — and the Bible makes this very clear — affects how we behave.

And because of that, how someone reacts to the circumstances of life, gives us insight as to what hey believe about God.

Do they react in fear or in anger?… or is their reaction one of peace?

The Foolishness of the Cross [1 Corinthians 1:18-25]

Sermon Notes

Date: 03/15/2020

Preacher: Josh Peglow, guest preacher

Key Text: 1 Corinthians 1:18-25

Description: 

Average Guy: The Cross? The Cross is a joke! It’s for fools. It lacks any intellectual fortitude or logical reasoning. If I’m going to believe in such a fairy tale, I need some solid proof.

Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, brother in Christ, Josh Peglow, fills in at the pulpit to share a concept in the the Bible that at first to the believer may seem incredulous (and wrong): the Cross as foolishness.

But that’s exactly how God wants it to be seen. His intent is to turn conventional wisdom on its head. For as we begin to understand why He wants it this way, we begin to see the depth and richness of His power through it.

…And then we begin to realize where the foolishness really lies.

Preacher: Kris Baines, guest pastor

Key Text: Philippians 3:12 – 4:1

Description: There’s no doubt we’re living in challenging times — times in which there is an unprecedented effort to marginalize Christian values.

Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, we welcome back our Down Under pastor and pianist friend, Kris Baines, to share the encouraging message that though we face challenge, with Jesus, we can remain unshakable.

SBC logo 204x204

For though the world — like never before in recent history — now celebrates and normalizes things the Bible condemns as wicked, sinful, and perverse, we as followers of Jesus Christ are called and empowered to “keep going and stand firm” in our Christian walk.
