Preacher: Keith Barker, elder

Key Text: Exodus 15:11

Description: The cross: a Christian symbol evoking comfort and love for many, many people. But for some, it stands as a graphic warning sign declaring danger ahead.

Today on Scandia Bible Church podcast, Elder Keith Barker exhorts that the cross is SHOUTING that God hates our sin — so much so that He sent His only begotten Son, Jesus, to pay the price for it by hanging on the cross. His blood was a ransom for us — freeing us from an eternity separated from Him, our loving Heavenly Father.

 

Yes, the cross serves as a merciful word of comfort to Christians of God’s finished work but, to the unsaved, a stark shout of danger.

Holiness [1 Peter 1:13-16]

Keith Barker 2014Sermon Notes

Date: 08/12/2018

Preacher: Keith Barker, elder

Key Text: 1 Peter 1:13-16

Description: 

Do you remember the Susan B. Anthony dollar? …You know the one that looked like a quarter.

Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, Elder Keith Barker opens the Bible and draws our attention to a problem in America today: a lack of holiness.

Too often the church looks so much like the world, that those that are unsaved see no need to consider the claims of Jesus on their own lives. To them, they all look like quarters – but they’re really dollars. They don’t stand out because they’re lacking holiness.SBC logo 204x204

If by the saving grace of Jesus Christ you are now considered a “dollar”… act like one. Because as He clearly commands: “Be holy for I am holy.”

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.

Holiness [Hebrews 12:4]

Keith Barker 2014Sermon Notes

Date: 04/09/2017

Preacher: Keith Barker, elder

Key Text: Hebrews 12:4

SBC logo 204x204Description:

“Without holiness no one will see the Lord.”

Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, Elder Keith Barker shares with us that holiness is not something that you muster all of your energy to do, but rather something that is done to you. Holiness is an EFFECT – not a cause. Often, people believe that they need to “get better” in order to qualify for salvation. That in fact is, nothing is more impossible: the flesh cannot “Christianize” the flesh… because holiness is of the Lord.

The Holyness of God [Exodus 3:5]

Sermon Notes

Date: 06/12/2011

Preacher: Keith Barker, elder

Key Text: Exodus 3:5

Description: It would be no wonder if an unholy God could love unholy men, but that the God whose name is Holy, could love beings so utterly sinful as we are, that is the wonder of  eternity.  There are many deep mysteries in the Bible, but no other so profuound as this.  (taken from ‘What the Bible teaches’ by R. A. Torrey)
