The Spirit of the Law September 21st, 2015

These last couple weeks have been pretty weird.
We have had so many more appointments that have fallen through. We have been feeling that God is trying to help us shift our focus and recognize some things that we need to be doing better. We are still trying to figure out what some of those things are, but we feel like we are catching some of the idea's.
One guy that we met yesterday is named Chris. He was one of the people we met sharing the family proclamation. When we first gave it to him, he was headed off to the hospital because his wife was having a baby. We think he may have been drunk while he was meeting with us, but he was very wishy washy. One moment he would be telling us that we were saved, the next we were deceived, then that we were Brother's in Christ, then that we were damned. He seemed to be struggling, and he doesn't know for sure if he can be forgiven. We are hoping to find him at a time when he is sober that way we can help him feel and recognize that he can have a knowledge of the forgiveness of his sins. He is a great guy and he is just new to Christianity but he is trying to figure it out, and we hoping we can do all we can to help him feel the power of the atonement in his life.

One thing we have been learning about more recently, is about the spirit of the law vs the letter of the law. The spirit will require more of us than the letter of the law, and that is why we have such a great need to be obedient. If we can't be obedient to those things plainly put in front of us, how can we be raised above that bar. As we are willing to give more of ourselves to the Lord, we can become more effective tools in his hands and we can be those that the Lord will call upon us to accomplish His work in bringing to pass the immortality and eternal life of man. It is amazing and we are hoping to see changes. In the way we work as well as the zone. Though transfers are next Monday so I will let you all know what is happening next week.
