On Sunday November 5, 2017 a crazed gunman shot and killed 26 Christians in their church as they worshiped the Lord at First Baptist Church Sutherland Springs, TX. That event caused a lot of concern within the church across America. A lot of discussions took place on social media about what a church should do about security for it’s members on any given Sunday. A lot of these discussions seemed to me to be motivated by fear. So, on Sunday, November 12th I felt led to preach a message of encouragement on the topic of fear. Here is that message. I hope you find it helpful as you deal with this horrific event.
