Preacher: David Teves, guest preacher

Key Text: Ephesians 2:8-10

Description: 

Average Guy: If you want to get to heaven, you’d better have a good looking résumé, because the things you do while your here matter.

Average Gal: Total nonsense! Everyone knows that once you get a “Grace Card” from Jesus, works are meaningless.

[argument between the two]

Scandia Host: There is much confusion in the church today as to what good works are and why we need (or need not) do them.

Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, brother in Christ, David Teves, fills in at the pulpit to preach on a topic that greatly separates Christianity from other religions: GOOD WORKS.

Some say you need to do good works in order to get into heaven; others, we’re saved by grace and that good works don’t matter. …But what does the Bible say?

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.

Miserable Comforters [Job 4-7]

May 25, 2014

Monty Simao 2014Sermon Notes

Date: 05/25/2014

Preacher: Monty Simao, elder

Series: Job

Key Text: Job 4-7

Description:  In chapter 4 the first of Job’s friends, Eliphaz, breaks the silence and provides council to Job.  It is miserable council.  Eliphaz believes that calamity only follows sin and so has already concluded that Job is in sin and calls for his repentance.

Job is discouraged by his friend and eventually turns his plead to God.  In fact, Job is so discouraged that he requests God turn His gaze away from him and let him die in peace.

Aspects of Faith [1 John 5:1-3]

January 19, 2014

Sermon Notes

Date: 01/19/2014

Preacher: Monty Simao, elder

Series: 1 John

Key Text: 1 John 5:1-3

Description: John’s epistle is like looking through a kaleidoscope.  He repeats the same truths, but from different perspectives. In this final chapter, John turns the kaleidoscope yet again to present a new view of the themes of loving God, loving the brethren, and obedience to God’s law.  But this time we see it from the perspective of faith.
