I just wanted to say how awesome last night’s service was. I want to thank the elders for being so vulnerable before us and for bringing us the truth in love. I have been really convicted lately to share the truth in love, and it is wonderful that the elders gave us such a good example of that last night. I am so excited to see how DCF will grow with all of our repentant hearts. Thank you elders!!!

Thanks Emily.
An encouragement to everyone: It was a powerful time by all accounts. My own heart was torn down and built up. One moment I would identify myself as the sinner, wanting my heart to be more broken, and other times I wanted to defend myself. I never cried the whole night, others wept quite openly.

God knows what’s happening in someone’s heart. Things might seem entirely different on the outside of a person than the inside. The work of the Holy Spirit is invisible, but one of the effects we can see is the fruit of the Spirit.

Gal. 5: 22-26, “But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, 23 gentleness, self-control; against such things there is no law. 24 And those who belong to Christ Jesus have crucified the flesh with its passions and desires.

25 If we live by the Spirit, let us also walk by the Spirit. 26 Let us not become conceited, provoking one another, envying one another.”

So, I don’t want to say that any particular action we see or do in our meeting either must be from God, or must not be. Our responsibility is to love our brothers and sisters and seek the fruit of the Spirit. May we all increase in our desire to treasure the riches of Christ, hate sin and love our fellow man, especially the lost.
