A new member letter was written and will be sent out early next week. In the letter, Dave Harris is pleading with us not to lose our first love, and if we have, to rekindle it, showing from the Bible the devastating consequences if we don’t.
A new StandingWatch program was posted this week on StandingWatch and YouTube. It is titled, “Why Aren’t We SOLVING Our National and Global Problems?” In the program, Norbert Link discusses the following: Our domestic and international problems seem insurmountable. We are facing problems in Afghanistan, the Middle East and now with Europe. And look at our economic problems–while our recession is deepening, our bank failures are on the increase, and our unemployment is rising. Health care discussions don’t address the real concerns, and Mr. Obama’s eligibility as President is widely ignored. But sugar-coating, suppressing or falsifying the facts or resorting to compromise will never get us anywhere.
A new German sermon was recorded this week and posted on the Web [and www.aufpostenstehen.de]. It is titled, “Wieso starb Christus für SIE, Teil 2?” [“Why did Christ die for YOU, Part 2?”]. In the sermon, Norbert Link discusses the requirements that Christ had to fulfill to make possible God’s forgiveness; including that He was born of a woman; that He came in the likeness of sinful flesh; that He was made sin for us; and that God the Father forsook Him at the cross. The sermon also emphasizes the love of God towards us, which must be reflected by us today, including forgiving others and loving those who hate us.
