Speaker ‘Frank Sumrall’

Faith Is

Saturday November 30, 2013

Sermon message: Hebrews 11:1, 6. Faith is not in your brain but in your spirit. Faith comes by hearing the Word. You must speak your faith. Faith is obedience to the Word. In Luke 5:1-8 Jesus told Peter to let the nets down after a night of catching nothing. Because Peter obeyed Jesus, the fisherman caught an overabundance of fish. The Lord is speaking to you, telling you what to do. Listen to Him, because He has good things for you. In Joshua 1:6-9 God told Joshua to be strong and not afraid, and then he would make his way prosperous. God is with you wherever you go. In Jeremiah 1:12 God tells us that He performs His Word. Sometimes timing is an issue. In Genesis 28:12 Jacob saw the angels ascending and descending with the answers to prayers. In Number 13:2-23 God told the Israelites and leaders to be of good courage, but because ten of the spies did not believe God, they wandered in the wilderness for forty years. When you are in a problem, see and remember what God did for you before. (Frank told of several miraculous events in his and his father’s lives.) Speak and act on your faith and listen to the Spirit. We are living in the time of the Holy Spirit. In Jesus’ home town, the people did not receive miracles because they did not believe He was the Son of God. God will touch you and set you free. The communion part of the service held earlier is located after the sermon. Communion: 1 Corinthians 11:23-32. Examine and judge yourself, and if needed, repent and get right with God.
