Monty Simao 2014Sermon Notes

Date: 03/29/2020

Preacher: Monty Simao, pastor

Series: CoronaVirus

Key Text: Romans 13:11-14

Description:

How are we to live during a crisis? 

How are we to walk when told to stay put? 

How are we to represent God’s kingdom — a kingdom of hope —when chaos is all around us?

Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast as Pastor Monty Simao continues his virtual preaching to our church body while we obey stay-at-home governmental mandates during the COVID-19 Pandemic, he shows us that Romans 13 gives us the answers to these questions.

Not only does it provide us the way to walk during crisis, but, perhaps more importantly, it provides us a way to live with the end in sight…and how, ultimately, the return of our Lord affects the way we live in the here and now.

Monty Simao 2014Sermon Notes

Date: 02/09/2020

Preacher: Monty Simao, pastor

Series: Revelation

Key Text: Revelation 22:18-21

Description: All Christians believe in the return of Christ.

Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, Pastor Monty Simao comes to our final passage for our study in the book of Revelation and presents us with a challenge:

If we know our Lord is returning, how does that change us? Does it change the things we think, say, and do?

The church’s response to Christ’s promise to come quickly is to say “Amen, Come Lord Jesus”.

But, is that your attitude? Are you looking forward to the blessed hope at the appearing of our Lord?

Jesus is Risen. Now What? [1 Corinthians 15:1-5]

Sermon Notes

Date: 04/28/2019

Preacher: David Teves, guest preacher

Key Text: 1 Corinthians 15:1-5

Description: After the Resurrection, the disciples had no idea what to do… so they went fishing.

Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, brother in Christ, David Teves fills in at the pulpit and explains that even after 3 years of living with Him, eating with Him, and listening to Him, the disciples still did not understand what Jesus was talking about.

In fact, it wasn’t until after His ascension that they finally knew what to do: Proclaim the gospel to all nations.

But has modern day Christianity faithfully followed suit? …Or has it fallen into a trap of deception — making the gospel into something it is not.

Good Works [Ephesians 2:8-10]

Sermon Notes

Date: 02/03/2019

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.

SBC logo 204x204

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?

GOOD WORKS

  1. What are they?

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.

Monty Simao 2014Sermon Notes

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.
