Do you ever wonder about your standing before God?
Do you wonder if God is angry with you when you are weak?
…Or do you wonder if God compares you with other Christians who seem to have it all together?
Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, Pastor Monty Simao continues with our study in the book of Romans in which we are just about through the Apostle Paul’s salutation to the believers in Rome — a salutation that goes WAY beyond a simple greeting.
For we find him laying a foundation of gospel truth that when correctly understood makes those questions we started with go away… and can only result in praising our great God from whom all blessings flow.
And [the jailer] called for lights and rushed in, and trembling with fear he fell down before Paul and Silas, and after he brought them out, he said, “Sirs, what must I do to be saved?”
They said, “Believe in the Lord Jesus….”
Acts 16: 29-31a
Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, Pastor Monty Simao continues with our study in the book of Romans in which we see Paul strike upon the key to understanding the Gospel: “the obedience of faith.” …words that seemingly don’t belong together.
For obedience is all about YOU — following the rules, adhering to the Law… but faith is different: It’s about HIM — and putting your trust and belief in the Gospel.
…Making “the obedience of faith” simply a command to believe.
For while the Law says DO-DO-DO… the Gospel says DONE.
Apostle Paul:Tertius, my amanuensis, grab pen and ink… I must write to the church in Rome.
Tertius of Iconium:At the ready Paul.
Apostle Paul: [dictating] Paul, a bond-servant of Christ Jesus, called as an apostle, set apart for the gospel of God, which He promised beforehand through His prophets in the holy Scriptures, concerning His Son, who was born of a descendant of David according to the flesh who was declared the Son of God with power by the resurrection from the dead, according to the Spirit of holiness, Jesus Christ our Lord…
Bible scholars agree: Of all his epistles, Paul’s letter to the Romans stands out.
Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, Pastor Monty Simao embarks upon a new study in the book of Romans— a letter that many not only credit as Paul’s magnum opus, but as the clearest articulation of the Gospel found anywhere in the Scriptures.
Apostle Paul: [dictating] …to all who are beloved of God in Rome, called as saints: Grace to you and peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.
Description: The doctrine of Election… Perhaps no where in the Bible is it seen more clearly than in Genesis Chapter 25 and Apostle Paul’s explanation of it in Romans Chapter 9. Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, Pastor Monty Simao continues with our study in the Book of Genesis and shares with us that the doctrine of Election is not some philosophical ethereal kind of “shelf doctrine,” but rather the picture of God’s sovereignty in the affairs of men and the way of salvation.
Description: Paul deals with the final issue in his appeal to Philemon by dealing with Onesimus’ outstanding debt. Paul is willing that the debt be written in his name and in that act, we see elements of the Gospel.
Description: In today’s message, we that a look at the second illustration that Paul provides on how a husband is to love his wife. That is, he is to love his wife as himself. This is bound up in a special unity that exists between husband and wife that doesn’t exist in any other relationship on earth. This unity is meant to reflect the unity that we have as the bride of Christ with our Lord and Bridegroom. What an amazing mystery.
Description: To be a Christian Mother is a high, holy and crucial calling. It is the highest calling any Christian woman can enter. We must never underestimate the power of God working through a mother to achieve His purposes.
Description: All Christians are under the authority of someone else. Husbands are accountable to the Lord and to the elders in the church. Children are under the authority of parents and slaves under the authority of masters. In our passage this morning Paul speaks to husbands and commands them to love their wives as Christ loved the church.
Description: All Christians are under the authority of someone else. Husbands are accountable to the Lord and to the elders in the church. Children are under the authority of parents and slaves under the authority of masters. In our passage this morning Paul speaks to wives to be in submission to their own husbands as unto the Lord.
Description: Paul gives us 5 participles to explain the consequences or results of a spirit filled life. We find that one who is under the control of the Holy Spirit is a person who has a heart that sings, a life of thanksgiving, and is a humble servant.
