SBC Host: [narrating audio bible] …Hallowed be Thy name. Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done in ear—
Avg Guy: [knocking on booth glass] Excuse me.
SBC Host: I’m kind in the middle of recording here.
Avg Guy: My apologies. But I’ve always wondered, why should we pray to God that “His WILL be done”? I mean isn’t His will always done? He is God after all.
SBC Host: Good point…. Hang tight for just a second.
Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, Pastor Monty Simao welcomes our congregation back in-person after 17 weeks of Corona Captivity in this pandemic of 2020 and continues his series on The Church — specifically the Lord’s Prayer, in which we learn exactly why we are told pray that our sovereign God’s will be done.
SBC Host: Sounds like this sermon was written just for you. Now if you’ll excuse ME.
Avg Guy: Okay… Bye.
SBC Host: [resumes narrating] …And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors….
Description: We do it in private. We do it with our families. And we do it with our church.
Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, as we move into the homestretch on our Pandemic Stay-Home Virtual Church Service Program, Pastor Monty Simao continues his series on The Church in which he talks about prayer.
Prayer is one of the most essential parts of the Christian life.
And while, Christians are commanded to pray and unbelievers pretend to pray, it is Jesus who taught us to pray. What better teacher could we have than God the Son teaching us how to address God the Father.
Avg Guy:The Corona Crisis is Careening out of Control!!! The Constraints are Crazy! Those in Command say we Can’t Congregate, have Crushed Commerce, and have Cut-off Camaraderie! They are Culpable and must be Charged!
SBC Host: Woah! That’s a lot of C’s. Here’s one more: How ought the Christian think about and react to the world around us?
Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, Pastor Monty Simao preaches a message, as we continue to move through the Pandemic of 2020, that reminds us that what we believe — and the Bible makes this very clear — affects how we behave.
And because of that, how someone reacts to the circumstances of life, gives us insight as to what hey believe about God.
Do they react in fear or in anger?… or is their reaction one of peace?
Description: And then John looks up and sees an image that makes Colossus of Rhodes look small and the gods of the Roman pantheon look… well, weak.
Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, Pastor Monty Simao continues our study in the book of Revelation in which witness right along with John…
And yet, as breathtaking as this image is… this amazing being is just simply one of God’s servants do His bidding.
But through this vision, we capture a glimpse of God’s amazing sovereignty over a seemingly chaotic world which will one day come to an end — when the mysteries of the Lord Almighty will be revealed in the renewed world that awaits.
Average Guy:Believing in God is utter nonsense. It’s ridiculous! Anyone who does has obviously checked his intelligence at the door. I mean how can someone believe in a God they can’t even see?
Scandia Host: That was pretty good.
Average Guy: Thanks, I’ve been practicing.
Scandia Host: Sadly, though, too many people believe this way — so much so that they have their own groups.
Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, Elder Keith Barker opens the book of Psalms to show us that even the heavens declare His name. They speak of His Glory, His Greatness, His Goodness, and His Grace. Nevertheless, even though God is shouting His existence into creation, a person with perfect vision can still be too blind to see it.
If you are one who is unsure of God, consider seeking to know Him. Open a Bible to the book of John, ask God to reveal Himself, and read the text with an open mind. It might just prove to be the most exciting decision of your life.
Description: Is God really in control??? Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, Pastor Monty Simao continues with our study in the book of Genesis and shows us that even through the Bible’s genealogies we can see God at work, sovereignly orchestrating the affairs of man to bring about His purposes. For He is sovereign over EVERYTHING – sovereign over the BIG things in life, and even sovereign over those things, which to you and I, may seem too small to matter.
Description: This sermon (part 1 of 2) serves as an introduction to our series in book of Job — the aim of which is to see the Gospel and Christ even in the midst of an ancient book about the suffering of a man called Job. (Listen to Part 2)
Description: Christmas is preeminently about God’s promise of a coming Savior who would rescue man from the curse of the fall. God’s mercy and grace is always seen in His works and in His interactions with man. In the Garden of Eden Adam and Eve shook their fists to Heaven as they rebelled against God and God cursed them according to the covenant agreement. No sooner had the curse been said God also proclaimed the Gospel of a coming Savior.
Description: This book began proclaiming that God has given the believer every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places and now Paul has taken us from the heavenlies and brought us to our knees. Now as we conclude this book, we are reminded that it is all of God and we require His strength to sustain us …prayer helps us remember that.
Description: God has a plan that is as eternal and perfect as He is. Understanding that God is in control should provide us with a boldness and confidence in approaching God and dealing with the circumstances of life.
