Redeeming the Ruthless [Isaiah 25:1-9; Ephesians 2:1-10]

April 12, 2020

Sermon Notes

Date: 04/12/2020, Easter Sunday

Preacher: Monty Simao, pastor

Series: CoronaVirus

Key Text: Isaiah 25:1-9; Ephesians 2:1-10

Description: The prophet Isaiah painted a picture of the rebellion in the nations: a place of idolatry, injustice, and insurrection; a place where God is ignored and His followers mocked, as man sits in his citadels of strength.

…That is, until God brings man’s city to ruin and his citadels to rubble.

Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, Pastor Monty Simao virtually delivers a Resurrection Sunday Service to our church body as we watch from the safety of our homes during the Coronavirus Pandemic of 2020 and reminds us that during these times when God brings people low, we rejoice.

We rejoice because God does it to rescue the afflicted and to vindicate His people. But there’s another reason we rejoice…a scandalous reason.  SBC logo 204x204

God brings people low to make the proud humble and remove the strength of the mighty and bring the ruthless to their knees.

And most shockingly, He redeems the ruthless so that they too worship Him.

Series: Ephesians

Key Text: Ephesians 3:14-16a

Description:  This sermon covers the introduction to Paul’s apostolic prayer for the Ephesian believers. Paul’s reasons for praying for the Ephesians are found in chapter two of the epistle as Paul teaches about the unity of Christ’s church. Paul now prays that the Ephesians understand these great truths. Many of these truths are ones that Paul struggled in understanding until confronted by the resurrected Lord. We will answer the following questions in this message:

  1. Why is Paul Praying?
  2. How does Paul Pray?
  3. To Whom does Paul Pray?
  4. According to what does Paul Pray?
