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.

Why Did Jesus Need to Die? [Romans 3:23-24]

April 1, 2018


Sermon Notes

Date: 04/01/2018, Easter Sunday

Preacher: Monty Simao, pastor

Key Text: Romans 3:23-24

Description:

Why did Jesus go to the cross?

There are many reasons that Jesus went to the cross. There are human reasons such as Judas Iscariot betraying Him and the Sanhedrin wanting to kill him. …But those reasons see the cross from the perspective of man of things that happened to Jesus – they don’t ultimately answer the question “why.” Because obviously, He had escaped the grasp of evil men before.

SBC logo 204x204Today on our Easter Sunday Scandia Bible Church Podcast, Pastor Monty Simao rightfully sharpens our thinking on this question and shows us that the cross wasn’t just a thing that happened …it was necessary. Jesus didn’t just go to the cross, He needed to go to the cross…He needed to die. For that was His purpose in taking on flesh. So perhaps a better question we need to ask is “Why did Jesus need to die?”

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.

How We Demonstrate Hope [1 Peter 1:13-16]

Sermon Notes

Date: 01/28/2018

Preacher: Peter Montoro, guest pastor

Key Text: 1 Peter 1:13-16

Description: Holiness gets a bad rap in our society.

For some, it is one more difficulty in a life already filled with struggle. For others, it is a means of justifying their own sense of superiority to the rest of the world.

Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, we welcome back guest preacher Peter Montoro from Westside Baptist Church, pinch-hitting for Pastor Monty as he and his family take a much needed respite in the wake of his son, Isaiah’s, death.

SBC logo 204x204In our message, Pastor Montoro shows us that holiness, rightly understood, is neither of these things mentioned at the beginning, but rather a wonderful opportunity to demonstrate the hope that we have in Christ. In the end, holiness is not about an upturned nose but about uplifted eyes.

Preacher: Peter Montoro, guest pastor

Key Text: 1 Corinthians 10:12-13

Description: Temptation. We all know what it’s like to face it – and we all know what it’s like to give in to it.

Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, we’re pleased to welcome back to our pulpit guest preacher Peter Montoro from Westside Baptist Church, as Pastor Monty and his family take a much needed break to connect and mourn the loss of their child, Isaiah Gregory.

In our message, Pastor Peter reminds us that when it comes to temptation, the Scriptures teach – though we will never be safe from falling – we are always enabled to stand when, instead of looking to ourselves, we look to Jesus.
