Sermons by Paul Haugtvedt
In our first ever Church Online service, Paul presented an update on the coronavirus measures ordered by the Swiss authorities and IBF’s decision to suspend Worship Services at our church building for the next several weeks. Trey gave us a message about Wisdom, Family, and our resposibilities to others in times like these.
Paul continued with our Wisdom and Life series and lead us through several Proverbs which gave insight on how the Bible teaches us about the act of gaining wisdom and the cautions of folly.
The Bible is God’s communication to us as human beings. We are His special creation. And we see it in the world today when we’re praying for our children that God would bless them and help us give them a good foundation.
Let us then approach God’s throne of grace with confidence, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need.
Do not be afraid, for I know that you are looking for Jesus, who was crucified. He is not here; he has risen, just as he said.
“It is not those who are healthy who need a physician, but those who are sick; I did not come to call the righteous, but sinners.”
The church is a living organism and not a static institution. Church is much more than a 90 minute service held once a week.
We are looking forward to a new year; we are looking forward with anticipation for what’s going to happen in this new year.
We are at the end of another year: 2014 is over in a few days. It has gone by very quickly from the perspective of someone who is over 60. I guess time seems to speed up the older we get.
Concerning this salvation, the prophets who prophesied about the grace that was to be yours searched and inquired carefully, inquiring what person or time the Spirit of Christ in them was indicating when he predicted the sufferings of Christ and the subsequent glories.
