March 2021 Newsletter
Dear OFRH Family,
Last month as Dr. Fuller was finishing up the Book of Titus you may recall how, in chapter 3, verses 4 to 7, Paul pours out a glorious reminder of the unmerited favor of God which He has lavished on each of His children because of Jesus.
Now in March, Dr. Fuller starts a very important series in the Book of Ephesians, and I really want to emphasize Paul’s prayer life – and ours. Paul, writing from Rome while in prison, explains how all the gifts and benefits of our adoption by God empower our prayers beyond our expectations and imagination. As we draw closer and closer into the heart of God, we will realize the importance of our access to the Father through prayer – and we’ll increasingly appreciate the peace, grace and power which are abundantly ours.
In the weeks leading up to Easter on April 4, in order to stand firmly against the noise, confusion, bad news and downright despair of this world, will you join me in slowly absorbing all the joyous life-altering truth densely packed in each verse of Ephesians? As we are freshly overwhelmed with the staggering treasure that is ours as children of our Father, would you also join me in praying, that all those you love and those you encounter every day would have the eyes of their hearts enlightened? This is how the Apostle Paul prayed: “…that the eyes of your heart [the very center and core of your being] may be enlightened [flooded with light by the Holy Spirit] so that you will know and cherish the hope [the divine guarantee, the confident expectation] to which He has called you, the riches of His glorious inheritance in the saints (God’s people)” – Ephesians 1:18 (Amplified Version).
Well, dear friend, we have that hope – that guarantee, that confident expectation – because God raised Jesus Christ from the dead. So to help in celebrating His resurrection, we want to highlight two of our outstanding CDs: “An Old Fashioned Easter” and “Another Old Fashioned Easter.” Each has 16 uplifting songs by the OFRH musicians. Individually, the CDs are $16.50 which includes shipping. But if you order both, the price is $31.00. (For Californians, due to tax, the prices are $18.00 for one CD and $34.00 for both.)
Larry in New York left a message on our 800 number and said our programs are an inspiration to him, that they help him wonderfully with the Word of God and he loves the music. He also said, “You bless a lot of people.” That comment encourages us a great deal. We love to hear from such blessed listeners.
With confident hope in the resurrected Savior,
Michael Khanchalian, D.D.S.
