Key Text: Genesis 5

SBC logo 204x204Description: A long list of dead men who lived long ago…what’s the point???

Chapter 5 is one of those chapters we usually skip, after all, just about the whole thing is a genealogy. The Apostle Paul tells us though that:

All Scripture is inspired by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, for training in righteousness; so that the man of God may be adequate, equipped for every good work.”

…And that means that even Genesis 5 is given by God for our benefit.  For those who doubt, all we can say is “Come and see.”

Key Text: Genesis 3:20-24

SBC logo 204x204Description: The last five verses of Genesis Chapter 3 give us a glimpse into the work that Christ would accomplish and a picture of substitutionary atonement.  We are left with a picture of a God who is a Savior and who will bring about good in the midst of man’s sin and rescue Adam’s fallen race from their sin and misery.

Key Text: Genesis 3:1-21

SBC logo 204x204Description: God placed Adam and Eve in a holy temple we call the Garden of Eden. There they would enjoy unrestricted access and fellowship with God as God covenanted with them and gave them the world.  And in all of God’s creation, there was only one thing He forbid and that was the eating of a single fruit. How could Adam and Eve throw it all away? How angry God must have been by there disobedience, and yet even as God pronounced a curse upon the wayward couple, He announced His plan to rescue them.

Failure to Keep the Covenant [Judges 1:1-2:5]

March 29, 2015

Monty Simao 2014Sermon Notes

Date: 03/29/2015, Palm Sunday

Preacher: Monty Simao, pastor

Series: Judges

Key Text: Judges 1:1-2:5

Description:  Israel fails to take the land and this sets off 350 years of rapid decline.  It’s a downward spiral of depravity as things go from bad to worse.  God hears the cries of His people and over and over He sends a judge to rescue them. But when the judge dies, the people fall back into idolatry and rebellion…and so the cycle continues.

The anticipation is for a judge that will rule righteously and not die. And whose righteous rule will bring a time of peace and the possession of the land.  That anticipation has been met in Christ who is the only righteous king and who alone obeyed the covenant for the prospering of His people.

Beyond Good Behavior: Parenting and the Gospel of Grace

March 15, 2015

Monty Simao 2014Sermon Notes

Date: 03/15/2015

Preacher: Monty Simao, pastor

Key Text: Luke 15

Description:  Our children are much the same way.  We tend to have the Prodigals or the Pharisees.  We tend to think of the Prodigals as hard to parent and we are always telling them the rules and the things that God requires.  While the Pharisees actually seem to get either praised or largely ignored.  After all, since they follow the rules, they require so much less…don’t they?

The truth of the matter is that our children can fall into both categories on any given day.  Sometimes our rebellious children follow the rules for a while and it seems that we are making so much progress.  And sometimes our rule-following children go through seasons of rebellion.  The categories are not hard and fast but rather designed to be descriptive.

What we fail to remember is that the Gospel is not about following the rules to get saved.  The Gospel is the good news that Jesus Christ obeyed the law perfectly for us.  In other words, both our rebels and our rule-followers need the same thing.  They need a Savior who has pleased God in all things and who has purchased their forgiveness by His death on the cross.

The ironic thing is that we fail to give either child the Gospel.  The Prodigal just gets scolding and punishment.  We tell them over and over what is expected…we tell them the rules.  Our Pharisees get praised for doing the right thing.
