…The sole possession of those who have trusted in Christ.
Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, Pastor Josh Peglow continues with our study in the book of 1 Peter in which we see the apostle begin his letter with an encouragement to praise God for the amazing salvation we have in Christ — a living hope brought about by Jesus’ resurrection from the dead.
For because of His mercy we have a reservation in heaven, guarded by God, to obtain an inheritance — an inheritance that is imperishable, undefiled, and that (as it says in the King James) fadeth not away.
Avg Guy: …It means, mustering the courage and taking a leaping step into the dark.
Avg Gal: …It’s channeling the power that comes from positive thinking to bring about what you want.
SBC Host: These are NOT Biblical views of faith.
Avg Guy/Gal: Oh.
Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, Pastor Monty Simao continues with our study in the book of Hebrews and shows how the author not only defines faith for us, but gives us example after example of those that went before, who knew what it meant to live by faith: the saints of the Old Testament.
Description: What can bring joy from the seeds of pain and sorrow?
The immediate answer is The Resurrection, which means that the ultimate answer is Jesus Christ.
Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, Pastor Monty Simao explains that just as that first Easter morning brought joy to those who were crushed and dismayed in their spirit, so too does the Resurrection bring a guaranteed hope to all who trust in Christ today.
Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, Pastor Monthy Simao preaches his final sermon for our study in the book of Revelation, in which he points out the many wonderful and good gifts the Lord has given to His church in this life.
Many of His good gifts, however, will come to an end. They will come to an end when this present evil age is over, and they no longer are needed.
For unlike the idiom we all know, stated at the beginning, which conveys negative emotions of acceptance that all things are temporary… with God, these things come to an end because they must make way for the better things that have arrived.
Description: He is risen! … and indeed, He is risen!
Happy Resurrection Sunday from Scandia Bible Church, 2019, and we want to welcome you to our Sunrise Service Sermon, as our church gathers in its tradition for this special time at the lovely waterside home of Elder Keith Barker. Music this morning being provided by our church family.
And our Sunrise Service message… being delivered this time by Mr. Josh Peglow…. a member of our church body and brother in Christ.
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.
Description: Psalm 119. It’s not a Psalm we usually go to when looking for comfort, but, ironically, it has more to say about comfort and affliction than any other Psalm.
Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, Pastor Monty Simao continues to preach in the aftermath of his son’s tragic death and points out that when you see a passage of affliction in the Bible, take heart in knowing that you are not far from comfort — for this pattern, of passages of comfort following passages of affliction, occurs over and over again… in almost every instance. God is the God of all comfort, and He comforts the afflicted.
When it comes to Psalm 119, we often categorize it as a Psalm about the beauty of God’s word and statutes, but what we’ll find is that, consequently, it is also a Psalm about God’s great comfort.
Description: How is it that the Christian can be devastated and yet hopeful at the same time? How is it that at the point when we are weakest is also the point at which we are strongest?
Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, Pastor Monty Simao preaches in the aftermath of losing his son to a brutal horseriding accident and shows us, in the midst of that, that the Apostle Paul answers these questions in the book of 2 Corinthians; and within it we find more beauty in the Gospel for it is Good News even in times like this.
Description: The widow Naomi begins her journey home from the land of Moab to Bethlehem. Ruth her daughter-in-law refuses to leave her and binds herself to Naomi pledging her loyal love to go with her. Hope starts to enter Naomi’s life for the first time in a long time.
Description: We look at the fifth piece of the Armor of God and the last of the defensive pieces (the last is offensive). This piece truly represents the last piece of our defense, where we must look beyond the temporal battle and fix our eyes upon Jesus and the most sure hope of glory, knowing that this battle will have an end and the end is known and victorious.
Description: Our Redeemer lives. He was victorious over death the grave could not hold Him. Paul presents in 1 Corinthians 15 the facts concerning the resurrection of Christ to those at the church at Cornith.
Description: The problem of division and disunity in the body of Christ is nothing new. It is a problem which Paul addresses in his letter to the church in Ephesus and which we will examine in this message. Paul clearly lays out the theological basis for the unity of the church by describing the work of the triune God in the lives of His people. Difficulty arises because those whom God has called to be His are made up of people from so many backgrounds that division seems likely. For this reason, Paul instructs his readers to better understand the unity they have in Christ and how that unity is to be lived out in our daily experience.
Description: All through the New Testament from the time of the Ascension onward, the one assurance is that Christ is living; and in His life we live, hold fellowship with God, receive grace for daily living and rejoice in victory over sin, sorrow and death. Our message today is a reassuring message of hope, trust and belief in the Risen Lord.
Description: The Apostle Peter, in 1 Peter 3:13-17, tells his readers that they should not fear men and any suffering they might encounter. Quoting Isaiah 8:11-13, Peter writes that they should have a reverence for Jesus and be always ready to tell others why they have hope.
