“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.

Key Text: Genesis 1:1

“In the beginning God….”

…The first four words of the Bible – four words whose depth and volume lay the very foundation for the truths that the rest of the Bible proclaim.

Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, Elder Keith Barker takes us all the way to the beginning of the Bible – Genesis 1:1 – and explains that when an author pens a story his aim is to grab your attention to draw you into his book. God did this with the first four words of His book… four words that are so important that if the reader can’t digest them, the remainder of the Bible will likely remain a mystery.

Preacher: Keith Barker, elder

Key Text: Matthew 27

SBC logo 204x204Description: Have you ever reflected on who actually killed Jesus?

…Was it the angry crowd? Was it the Roman governor, Pilate? Was it the religious leaders? Or was it the work of Satan?

Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, Elder Keith Barker addresses the possible contributors to Jesus’ death by opening the 27th chapter of Matthew – a portion of scripture that every Christian should be familiar, for it is the centerpiece of our belief. Because you see, when you understand this chapter, you not only gain a grasp of what Jesus was willing to endure for the forgiveness of each and everyone of us… but you peer into the sacrificial heart of God.

Preacher: Keith Barker, elder

Key Text: Romans 8:28

SBC logo 204x204Description: Isn’t fascinating how a chemist can put together certain chemicals that in and of themselves would be poison … yet when properly mixed, change from something bad to something good?chemistry-lab-b For example sodium is a poison, and chlorine is a poison; but when compounded together, sodium chloride becomes table salt. Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, Elder Keith Barker opens the Bible to show us that God’s “chemistry” was exhibited at the cross when His holiness met the depravity of man: yielding an outcome, for all who would believe, of salvation.

Key Text: 1 Corinthians 1:18-25

SBC logo 204x204Description: It’s a comforting thought to realize that God wants us to know Him. And while most people see the Bible as “too deep” and “too confusing,” the reality is just the opposite. Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, Elder Keith Barker opens the Bible to clearly establish the most important truth in all of Scripture – a truth made so simple by God that a child can both understand and respond: resulting in a life redeemed.

No Room for Jesus [Luke 2:1-7]

Series: Advent, Christmas Morning

Key Text: Luke 2:1-7

“A Baby’s hands in Bethlehem were small and softly curled; but held within Their dimpled grasp the hope of all the world.”

– Leslie Savage

Merry Christmas! Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, Elder Keith Barker opens the Bible and shares with us that despite the efforts of Joseph and Mary to find suitable accommodations in Bethlehem, there was no room for Jesus.

Christmas is a festive time.  A happy time.  A family time. A time to remember Christmas’ past – perhaps as a child – when the wonder of the sounds and smells and singing of Jingle Bells warmed and filled your heart.  Sometimes though it’s easy to fill our hearts with everything BUT the main point: the marvelous birth of the Lord Jesus Christ.

How’s your heart? Do you have room for Jesus?

Come to Me [Isaiah 55:1-13]

Preacher: Keith Barker, elder

Key Text: Isaiah 55

SBC logo 204x204Description: “Come”…. The inviting, guiding word seen throughout the Bible. Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, Elder Keith Barker shows us that the word “come” is found all throughout the Bible; in fact, the phrase “come to Me” is found 335 times! And in our text today out of Isaiah 55, we see that the word “come” appears three times in just the first verse alone! It’s a verse that begins a beautiful picture of the overflow of the results of the work Jesus did on the cross to make our salvation possible. And thus, in a sense, making the Bible one great, loving invitation to fallen humanity.
