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.

In 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.

Blessed is the Man [Psalm 1]

December 30, 2012

Sermon Notes

Date: 12/30/2012

Preacher: Monty Simao, elder

Key Text: Psalm 1

Description: Psalm 1 is the “preface” psalm to the entire book of Psalms. We see here the blessings of God pronounced upon His people and the curses of God upon the wicked. It draws its theme from the blessings and curses of the covenant of Sinai outlined in Deuteronomy 28-31 and we see its echo in the New Testament in what is commonly called the Beatitudes in the Sermon on the Mount.
