Sunday Sermon: Persistence in Faith
Beloved, there are many circumstances in life that can overwhelm our faith; health issues, financial problems, influences of the world and evil around us. The blind man of Jericho had all of these working against him……yet he did not give up. He stayed persistent in his faith and he called out to Jesus for help and healing. And Jesus responded and healed and blessed him. So also will He do the same for us. But we’ve got to try as best we can, and stay persistent in our faith, and not allow anyone or anything to suppress us!
This sermon was delivered on Sunday, January 24, 2016.
