This is the video shared on you-tube the week before the shooting. It is heartbreaking, but it shows the Love in the little church. They started off singing “Happiness is the Lord”.

One Week Later
The little church was turned into a beautiful memorial to honor the victims. It  was repainted and restored, chairs with roses were placed where each victim was found.

A beautiful service was held one week after the fatal shooting. Hundreds of people came, it was the largest they ever had. Sutherland Springs First Baptist Church Pastor Frank Pomeroy led the sermon and said, “Rather than choose darkness … we choose life.”

“FRUIT OF THE SPIRIT” ~Calling All D.U.C.K.S. To Come Out From Under The Bed~

  LEGALISM KILLS!!!
Paul said in Galatians 5:1” It is for freedom that Christ has set us free. Stand firm, then, and do not let yourselves be burdened again by a yoke of slavery.”The purpose of the Fruit of the Spirit is set us free from sin by telling us how to avoid sinning. We grow and mature as Children of God by bearing the Fruit of the Spirit.

Man can read the written word with man’s wisdom or with God’s spiritual wisdom. The outcome can be quite different! The interpretations and how we see things is can be like night and day. Man’s doctrine puts laws and commandments upon the Lord’s Children which should not be there. Legalism robs the freedom that Christ has given us.

As Children of God it is important we pray and ask the Lord for His spiritual wisdom to help see the truth. Jesus Made Love Mandatory so when reading the written word it comes alive in the hearts of those filled with love. Jesus told us to walk in the Spirit of righteousness and that means having total trust and faith in him. Let the fruit of the spirit pour out and be a light for the Lord. If one is trapped in legalism it is very difficult to see any light in them. They are as D.U.C.K.S. under the Bed. They may be “Devoted Unconditional the Christ’s Kingdom and Service” and know the written word like the back of their hand but something is missing and that is the Light!!! Legalism leads to unrighteous judgement, it causes a lack of compassion, humility, and mercy.


When we walk in the spirit, the “FRUIT OF THE SPIRIT”
shines forth to other people,
like a lighthouse shines forth it’s light.

Luke 8:16-17
“Now no one after lighting a lamp covers it over with a container, or PUTS IT UNDER A BED; but he puts it on a lampstand, so that those who come in may see the light. “For nothing is hidden that will not become evident, nor anything secret that will not be known and come to light.

~Calling All D.U.C.K.S. To Come Out From Under The Bed~

The acronym D.U.C.K.S. stands for
Devoted Unconditionally to Christ’s Kingdom and Service”.

“In essentials UNITY; in opinion LIBERTY; in all things LOVE”
God of all nations, We humbly ask you to guide us in all that we do. Strengthen us to love one another,
to help each other along in our faith journey.
Forgive us of our harsh thoughts, words,
and actions against people of other denominations in Christ. Help us to forgive one another, and join together, so that we may do YOUR work and glorify YOU LORD in the best way possible.
In Jesus name we pray,
Amen

So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed!” John 8:36
