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.

Following Jesus [Psalm 23:1-3]

Keith Barker 2014Sermon Notes

Date: 08/20/2017

Preacher: Keith Barker, elder

Key Text: Psalm 23:1-3

SBC logo 204x204Description:

“How’s a person supposed to make good decisions!?? I’m trying my best… but a little help from Jesus would be nice.”

Many Christians have little to no confidence that they have Jesus overseeing their daily activities – the result, they make decisions which are contrary to a life of peace. Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, Elder Keith Barker opens the Bible to the well-known Psalm 23, where we learn that, indeed, we are like sheep… often wanting our own way even when it’s the wrong way. But what we learn from God’s Word is that we can at any time ask for wisdom, and He promises to guide and provide… just like a good shepherd.

Servants in Submission to Their Sovereign (part 3) [1 Peter 2:21-25]

April 19, 2010

Sermon Notes

Date: 04/18/2010

Preacher: Frank Acevedo, elder

Series: 1 Peter

Key Text: 1 Peter 2:21-25

Description: The Good Shepherd is one of the thrusts of Biblical scripture. This illustration encompasses many ideas, including God’s care for his people and his discipline to correct the wandering sheep. The tendency of humans to put themselves into danger’s way and their inability to guide and take care of themselves apart from the direct power and leading of God is also reinforced with the metaphor of sheep in need of a shepherd.
