Ordinarily, I don't find outline sermons helpful... but Mr. Fry's grouping of her physical, financial and spiritual desparation spoke to me.

that is what the world is lacking.total surrender to God.man is still desparetly clinging to his own knowledge instead of clinging to God in totality.thats a great sermon

I feel like this woman because I have diseases with no cures, and I find myself just like her...determined to fight the crowds, which to me are discouragement. I not only reach out to touch the hem of His garment, but cling on to it ever so tightly, unable to let go. He is what gives me strength and hope each new day. And I praise God for His compassion and mercy upon me. This outline for the sermon is very powerful to me. I wish there was a way to read this entire sermon.

So, what did you think?


Thank you.
