Monty Simao 2014Sermon Notes

Date: 12/17/2017

Preacher: Monty Simao, pastor

Key Text: Hebrews 13:15

SBC logo 204x204Description: 

Host: Sacrifice and Praise.

Alter Ego: Wait a minute are we playing a game of opposites?

Host: No, but I can see what you mean. Because “sacrifice” sounds somber and costly.

Alter Ego: –And “praise” sounds joyful… and a lot easier than “sacrifice.”

Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, Pastor Monty Simao takes to the pulpit once again – following the fresh sting of the sudden loss of his son – and points out that when it comes to these two words, it’s not always one or the other, for the author of Hebrews tells us that we are to offer a sacrifice of praise. In fact, much of the New Testament describes the Christian life as the intersection between these two terms, where they not only meet but become intertwined into the very warp and woof of what it means to be a Christian.

Jephthah: Hero of Feeble Faith [Judges 12:1-7]

August 9, 2015

Monty Simao 2014Sermon Notes

Date: 08/09/2015

Preacher: Monty Simao, pastor

Series: Judges

Key Text: Judges 12:1-7 and Hebrews 11:32

Description:  After Jephthah’s defeat of the Ammonites and the wicked sacrifice of his own daughter, his troubles are not over.  He is rebuked by the Ephraimites and ends up fighting against them and over 40,000 Ephraimites die.  Israelite killing Israelite.

With all of the sinfulness and tragedy in the life of Jephthah, the book of Judges is not the only place we see mention of his name.  Jephthah surprisingly is listed in the “Hall of Faith” in Hebrews 11.  We explore how Jephthah might have “made the cut”.

JephthahDescription:  The Judge Jephthah was a man who was despised and rejected by his brethren but who ended up saving them from the hand of the Ammonites.
