Precious OFRH Family,
HOW GREAT IS OUR GOD! On August 21 my wife Janene, our son Timothy, and myself had been guided to a very remote location near the western border of Idaho, high above the Snake River. There, with some dear friends who own a ranch in Idaho, we witnessed the breathtaking total solar eclipse. We could see the darkness rushing at us from the west, first down in distant valleys and then overtaking our mountain lookout. We sang “How Great Thou Art.” And that’s the CD we’ve decided to offer this month. There are 16 uplifting songs by the OFRH men’s quartet. (If you’re planning to make a donation to the ministry and want to order the CD, simply add $12.50 to your gift and ask for September’s C D.)
It’s amazing to think that the sun is 400 times larger than the moon but is 400 times farther away from us and, therefore, both appear the same size from our vantage point. Otherwise, the moon couldn’t have completely covered the sun as it did. Is this just a coincidence? I think not! In Genesis 1:14 we read that God created these two great lights for signs and seasons, days and years. This same awesome, all-powerful Creator who, with such precision, created the universe also created you. Your body is a mini-universe also functioning with precision (most of the time). And the Creator loves you perfectly.
In his Bible lessons this month, Dr. Fuller will highlight Moses and then Rahab who lived in the city of Jericho. Both of them yielded themselves to the Lord and witnessed results beyond all they could ask or think. Sometimes each of us needs the reminder to yield ourselves fully to God, remembering that we were created to know Him, to know ourselves, and to let Him into each room of our hearts so that He might do the miracle of transforming us into all He created us to be. The life-changing little booklet, “My Heart, Christ’s Home,” explains this in detail, and we’d be pleased to send a copy to you. Just request it the next time you call or write. It will be sent free of charge. We’d love to hear from you.
Here are a couple of encouraging notes we received last month. From Fredericksburg, Virginia : “Thanks for Dr. Fuller’s Gospel of the Grace of God preaching which brings joy to my heart and comfort to my soul. God bless you all!” And then: “I would like to thank you for your Radio Program. I have been listening for about six months now on Phoenix, AZ 1010 AM KXXT. I really enjoy the sermons and the beautiful music, especially Jericho Road and Rock of Ages. Please keep up the great work…God bless you all.”
Basking in the Heavenly Sunshine of God’s blessings,
[ Dr. Mike ]
