SCBC Lord’s day #1 (2022)

A Song of Ascents. Of David. I was glad when they said to me, “Let us go to the house of the LORD!” Our feet have been standing within your gates, O Jerusalem! Jerusalem—built as a city that is bound firmly together.

Psa 122:1-3 ESV


SCBC Sunday School: Exposition of 1689 London Baptist Confession of Faith (Ptr. Jeremiah)

Chapter 30:2 Of the Lord’s Supper

In this ordinance Christ is not offered up to his Father, nor any real sacrifice made at all for remission of sin of the quick or dead, but only a memorial of that one offering up of himself by himself upon the cross, once for all; and a spiritual oblation of all possible praise unto God for the same. So that the popish sacrifice of the mass, as they call it, is most abominable, injurious to Christ’s own sacrifice the alone propitiation for all the sins of the elect.
  1. Rejection of wrong views of the LORD’s supper
    • We reject transubstantiation (the bread and wine’s substance-not appearance- became the substance of body and blood of Christ – Rome) and consubstantiation (Christ’s presence is in the bread and wine – Luther). The presence of Christ is not in the elements.
    • The bread and wine are not magically transformed into the body and blood of Christ.
  2. Affirmation of the Biblical view of Lord’s Supper
    • Its remembrance of the once-for-all sacrifice
      • Christ’s sacrifice is a once and for all event. There is only one sufficient sacrifice. Heb 10:14. Only on the basis of this sacrifice one can be forgiven.
    • Its Spiritual significance
      • The Spirit’s ministry is to communicate Christ to us, and to glorify Christ through the Word Preached. Our attitude in the LORD’s supper is spiritual.
      • It is the Spirit’s task to keep our mind focused on the significance of Christ’s sacrifice, not on the elements.
    • Its proper observance
      • On the one hand, we remember Christ’s death on the LORD’s supper, but on the other hand, we do this before the presence of Christ who is presently living.

We do not hope on the elements but the message of the gospel for the saving of our souls. Christ’s sacrifice is not ongoing and continuously offered through the LORD’s Supper. Forgiveness of sins is not obtained through the Lord’s Supper but the Lord’s once-for-all sacrifice.

SCBC Morning Message: Expository Series on the Book of Romans (Ptr. Jeremiah)

Verse: Romans 11:11-12

  1. The Purpose of the Corporate Fall
  2. The Principle Behind the Purpose – The perfect harmony between the Sovereignty of God and the responsibility of man.
  3. The Anticipated Outcome of God’s Purpose
    • To provoke them to Jealousy. v. 11
    • Future/massive conversion
Despite the persecution that we receive, let us be active and vigilant in proclaiming the gospel. Despite the world's mockery, God is not a loser. The world has a practical weapon against Christians, but the Christians have a spiritual weapon to capture the world's callous hearts.

SCBC Afternoon Message: Ptr. Jeremiah

Verse: Hebrews 2:18 – Jesus is the great comforter because He suffered more than we can ever do.

The gospel message is a message of comfort.

  1. The Nature of the Savior’s Experiences
    • He suffered on the cross and experience the weight of the wrath of God (Isaiah 53:6, 10 – It pleased the LORD to crush Him).
    • Jesus’ life was a life of sorrow, suffering, shame, and pain.
    • He was tempted (and suffered) in every way but He did not sin – Heb 4:14-16, Psalm 57:4
  2. The Result of the Savior’s Experiences
    • Isaiah 53:11, Heb 2:18 – He was comforted, and He is able to comfort. He triumphed over sin, and He is able to help those who struggle with sin triumphantly.
    • Job 16:2 – Jesus is not a miserable comforter. A tear is a language our Savior can understand.
    • The LORD has comforted us in all of our afflictions.
    • Jesus limits the power of the tempter (1 Cor 10:13)


  • All of these come from the loving heart of the Father, the sympathizing care of the Savior, and the faithful ministry of the Spirit.
  • The Savior was made (legally) sin by the Father (2 Cor 5:21)
  • Have you thought about your neighbor’s salvation? Have you exhorted them to flee from the wrath to come?
Jesus knows how it feels like to be under the wrath of the Father, and He is able to rescue those who are under God's wrath.

Blessed Lord’s Day!
