Series: Genesis

Key Text: Genesis 23

SBC logo 204x204Description: Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, Pastor Monty Simao continues with our study in the book of Genesis and takes us to chapter 23 – a chapter which, admittedly, following Abraham binding his son Isaac to the alter as as a sacrificial offering to the Lord in the previous chapter…may seem a bit anti-climatic. In chapter 23, we see that Abraham’s wife, Sarah, has died… But instead of focusing on her death, Abraham enters into a land negotiation.

Why is this all here, and what is God showing us through it? …The answer may surprise you.

A life of waiting.

…Such is much of the life of a Christian. Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, Pastor Monty Simao continues with our study in the book of Genesis in which he teaches that we can either wait in frustration for the passing – temporal – things, or we can wait in anticipation for God bringing about His purposes and how they will work themselves out in our lives. Either way, waiting teaches us life lessons that can’t be learned anywhere else … as we learn to endure with faith and patience.

Key Text: Genesis 20

“The fairest marbles have their flaws, and, while there are spots in the sun, we must not expect anything spotless under it.” 

— the great Puritan Commentator, Matthew Henry, concerning Genesis Chapter 20.

Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, Pastor Monty Simao continues with our study in the book of Genesis and points out that no truer words than those penned by Henry were spoken about Abraham… or about us, for that matter. Because you see, Genesis Chapter 20 is not a chapter recorded to Abraham’s honor, but it is recorded to God’s grace.

God knows your every thought and can see everything that is in your heart.

Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, Pastor Monty Simao continues with our study in the book of Genesis and explains that if you are fearful about God’s ability to know everything you keep from others, you’re not alone. In our passage we’ll see that even Sarah felt this way when God rebuked her while she was laughing in her heart. But what we’ll also see is that God’s ability to see into our heart is actually part of the Gospel, part of the good news of God’s love poured out in the work of Jesus Christ.

  1. Do not neglect to show hospitality to strangers, for by this some have entertained angels without knowing it. (Heb 13:2)
  2. Know therefore that the LORD your God, He is God, the faithful God, who keeps His covenant and His lovingkindness to a thousandth generation with those who love Him and keep His commandments; (Deu 7:9)

abraham-sarah-and-hagarYour patience has run out… and, frankly, your faith is wavering.

Ever gotten to that place? Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, Pastor Monty Simao continues with our study in the book of Genesis and shows us that Abram’s wife, Sarai, has. In fact, her experience was such that she attempted – by her own effort – to bring about the promises of God. The results were disastrous.

Servants in Submission to Their Sovereign (part 4) [1 Peter 3:1-6]

May 9, 2010

Sermon Notes

Date: 05/09/2010

Preacher: Frank Acevedo, elder

Series: 1 Peter

Key Text: 1 Peter 3:1-6

Description: An unsaved husband can better be won to Christianity by seeing it work in his wife’s godly life — even, as the Apostle writes, without a word. To illustrate, Peter turns to the marriage of Sarah and Abraham as the quintessential example of how the holy women of former times submitted to their husbands.
