Preacher: Josh Peglow, guest preacher

Key Text: Titus 2:11-14

Description: 

Driver: Hey Grace… How do I get to Christian Living?

Grace GPS: Getting directions to Christian Living. … Starting from Salvation, with the grace of God, drive straight and continue on the narrow path for a lifetime with sobriety, righteousness, and godliness. Along the way, avoid ungodliness and worldly lusts, as you look for the blessed hope and glorious appearing of the great God and our Savior, Jesus Christ.

Driver: Thank you.

Grace GPS: Happy to help!

Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, brother in Christ, Josh Peglow fills in at the pulpit and takes us to the book of Titus where we are reminded that when we need direction, “Grace” is there!… the grace of God… for it instructs us how to live, points us toward our coming hope, and grounds us in the work of Christ.

Ultimately, what we find is that the grace of God transforms us.

Monty Simao 2014Sermon Notes

Date: 09/27/2020

Preacher: Monty Simao, pastor

Series: The Church: Church Discipline, CoronaVirus

Key Text: 1 Corinthians 5

Description:

“Shouldn’t this person and his conduct be confronted and dealt with?…You pass it off as a small thing, but it’s anything but that. Yeast, too, is a ‘small thing,’ but it works its way through a whole batch of bread dough pretty fast. So get rid of this ‘yeast.’ ”

[1 Cor 5:2, 6-7 MSG]

Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, Pastor Monty Simao continues our study on Church Discipline and notes that Paul’s letter to the Corinthians, seems to instruct a very different and — dare I say — more drastic method for church discipline than what we learned from Jesus in the book of Matthew. 

Why is this? …And why, in order to correctly view and apply church discipline, must the church exercise wisdom?

Monty Simao 2014Sermon Notes

Date: 09/20/2020

Preacher: Monty Simao, pastor

Series: The Church: Church Discipline, CoronaVirus

Key Text: Matthew 18

Description:

“If any man has a hundred sheep, and one of them has gone astray, does he not leave the ninety-nine on the mountains and go and search for the one that is straying?” [Matthew 18:12]

Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, Pastor Monty Simao continues our series on the Church, and specifically church discipline, as we look at the teaching of Jesus in Matthew 18.

And what we find is that this is not an isolated text, but a theological treatise that not only instructs in the HOW of church discipline but the WHY, as well — and roots discipline in the Gospel of grace.

Discipline’s a Good Thing [Hebrews 12:1-3; Matthew 18:15-17]

September 6, 2020

SBC frame line - current sermons

Monty Simao 2014Sermon Notes

Date: 09/06/2020

Preacher: Monty Simao, pastor

Series: The Church: Church Discipline, CoronaVirus

Key Text: Hebrews 12:1-3; Matthew 18:15-17

Description:

SBC Host: How does the word “discipline” strike you?

Avg Guy: Strike me? … Oh I get it! Striking happens with discipline. [laughs]… Hey you turned off my mic!

SBC Host: Yeah, I meant to do that.

When we hear the word discipline, most of us think of strikes from the rod, dunce hats while standing in the corner, public embarrassment, and frankly, nothing good.

SBC logo 204x204

Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, Pastor Monty Simao continues our series on The Church in which we learn that while the word discipline may conjure up negative images…it’s not negative at all.

In fact, it is actually something we need, ought to want, and is commanded — in the life of the church.

Date: 09/01/2019

Key Text: Revelation 16:8-16

Description: ARMAGEDDON — a term well-known in both Christian circles and pop culture.

Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, Pastor Monty Simao continues with our study in the book of Revelation and points out that when most hear the term, what they picture is the final doom’s day battle — the war to end all wars — and indeed, it will be….

But as we read about this last battle, should this be the picture we are to walk away with?

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)

The Pursuit of Righteousness [1 John 2:29 – 3:10]

Preacher: Monty Simao, elder

Series: 1 John

Key Text: 1 John 2:29 – 3:10

Description: The Apostle John provides an argument for the pursuit of righteousness in the life of the Christian.  He provides essentially eight reasons for the Christian’s life to be marked by righteousness and not by sin.  This passage is commonly misquoted by those who teach Christian Perfectionism.  We will discuss why this is not what it is teaching.

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

August 11, 2013

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.

Series: Ephesians

Key Text: Ephesians 6:14b

Description: The enemy is a slanderer and a liar. In our passage today, Paul shows us how Christ’s righteousness is as a shield about the sinner and protects us from the enemy’s lies and enables us to stand in the spiritual battle that we are engaged in.

Humility [1 Peter 5:5-7]

March 6, 2011

Sermon Notes

Date: 03/06/2011

Preacher: Frank Acevedo, elder

Key Text: 1 Peter 5:5-7

Description: Humility is an essential characteristic of true piety, or of the person who is right with God. God humbles men in order to bring them to Himself, and it is when men humble themselves before Him that they are accepted. To “walk humbly with your God” completes the Divine requirements.
