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)

Confessions of the Contrite [1 John 1:8-9]

Sermon Notes

Date: 08/11/2013

Preacher: Monty Simao, elder

Series: 1 John

Key Text: 1 John 1:8-9

Description: In this morning’s passage, John responds to the second of three errors found in this section.  All of these errors have to do with a false view of sin.  The first error essentially taught that sin doesn’t matter, whereas the second error teaches that sin doesn’t exist.  The seriousness of these errors is that it undermines the atonement and robs the Gospel of it’s Good News.

The Gospel of Peace to Prepare you for War [Ephesians 6:15]

October 7, 2012

Sermon Notes

Date: 10/07/2012

Preacher: Monty Simao, elder

Series: Ephesians

Key Text: Ephesians 6:15

Description: Although it may sound strange to read about peace when we are being equipped for war, it is not strange at all. War and peace are always two sides of the same coin, and when you are at war with one party it usually means that you have established peace with another.  We are warring against the devil because we have experienced peace with God.  We need to remind ourselves of this peace with God: that Christ has purchased and firmly planted our feet into it so that we will be able to stand firm.
