Monty Simao 2014Sermon Notes

Date: 11/26/2017

Preacher: Monty Simao, pastor

Key Text: 2 Corinthians 4

SBC logo 204x204Description: 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.

A Man Called Job (part 2) [Job 1:1-5; 13-22]

April 6, 2014

Monty Simao 2014Sermon Notes

Date: 04/06/2014

Preacher: Monty Simao, elder

Series: Job

Key Text: Job 1:1-5; 13-22

Description: In this sermon (part 2 of 2) we follow the man Job as he encounters calamity.  We only look at the parts of the story that happened directly to Job.  We see it from his perspective and skip the section of the happenings between God and Satan in the heavenly throne room (which we will cover in the next sermon).

We look at Job’s response and in it we see an example of a man who must look to a Redeemer in the midst of his trials.

We end by looking at Christ who in many ways is the anti-type of Job and is the greater sufferer and who accomplished the ultimate defeat of all of Job’s enemies.  (Listen to Part 1)

40 Minus One [2 Corinthians 11:24; John 19:16-30]

April 28, 2013

Sermon Notes

Date: 04/28/2013

Preacher: Keith Barker, elder

Key Text: 2 Cor 11:24 and John 19:16-30

Description: Pain and punishment go together. We try to avoid both. The Apostle Paul experienced more than his share of both. Punishment is deserved in most cases — but the Bible tells of the pain that Jesus endured, though innocent, for the sin of you and me.
