Disappointed

(September 2013) On the same day the women came and found the empty tomb and brought the angel’s message of the resurrection of Jesus Christ to the disciples, two of the disciples made their way to a village that was about a two-hour walk from Jerusalem. They too... more ...

What we love about our faith

(August 2013) The motto of a recent youth service in Berlin, Germany - “Loving faith, living faith, sharing faith” - really spoke to me. And I must say that it was the first part, namely “loving faith”, that moved me the most. What does it mean to love our faith?... more ...

Glorifying the Father

(July 2013) In His intercessory prayer Jesus prayed to His Father: “I have glorified You on the earth. I have finished the work which You have given Me to do” (John 17: 4). This is, as it were, a summary of the life of Jesus Christ. Jesus concentrated on His... more ...

The Lord will acknowledge those who hold to Him

(June 2013) Jeremiah once received the following message from the Lord: “Therefore thus says the Lord: ‘If you return, then I shall bring you back; you shall stand before Me’” (cf. Jeremiah 15: 19). This is taken from the professions of Jeremiah, where the... more ...

The doctor’s advice

(May 2013) I am sure many people have at some point been told by their doctor: “You should really pay more attention to what your body is telling you.” It is quite easy to understand this counsel: it is a matter of supplying the body with things that are good... more ...

Holy Communion – central to the congregation

(April 2013) When we celebrate Holy Communion, we proclaim the sacrifice of Christ. Today people attach great importance to morals and ethics, but unfortunately people try to bring everything down to this level: “All you have to do is do something good. All you... more ...

Fear and joy

(March 2013) I would like to take a moment to look back upon the events of Good Friday and Easter. It touches us deeply when we reflect upon the account of Easter and everything that occurred on this occasion. To some degree, one can imagine the situation of the... more ...

Labour for the food which endures

(February 2013) I would like to draw attention to a passage that has occupied my mind in recent days. The Lord Jesus once said: “Do not labour for the food which perishes, but for the food which endures to everlasting life, which the Son of Man will give you” (John... more ...

A Year of Profession

(January 2013) My dear brothers and sisters, The year 2013 is an anniversary year. The prophetic calling of Apostles 150 years ago—who were not recognised by the Apostles of the Catholic Apostolic Church—is considered the birth of the New Apostolic Church. In... more ...

Christmas – Unreserved trust in God

(December 2012) Christmas is associated with a great deal of sparkle and glitter. Just look at everything that is going on! The stores are filled with people! There are lights everywhere! But in contrast to all of this hustle and bustle, the story of Christmas... more ...

A message of comfort

(November 2012) Often I come to congregations where – without knowing any details – I feel many burdens and concerns. In this context I recently came across a Bible passage that I found to be very beautiful and comforting. It is recorded in one of Apostle Paul’s... more ...

Thank God for everything always

(October 2012) “Give thanks always for all things to God the Father” (cf. Ephesians 5:20). That is how Paul puts it in his epistle to the Ephesians. In my eyes this is a fundamental attitude: our thankfulness must not be limited to specific events or moments when... more ...
