Summary: Faith, It does a body good
Since there are a large amount of sermons and topics and illustrations that are posted on Sermon Central, I feel it is necessary to place this disclaimer on all of the sermons that I submit.
These sermons are original to the author and the leading of the Holy Spirit.
While ideas and illustrations are often obtained from many sources including those at sermoncentral.com, any similarities and wording including sermon titles, that may appear to be the same as any other sermon are purely coincidental.
In instances where other minister’s exact wording is used, due recognition will be given.
These sermons are not copyrighted and may be used or preached freely.
May God richly bless you as you read these sermons.
It is my sincere desire that all who read them and hear them may be lifted up to a higher relationship with God.
Most of the scriptures quoted in these sermons are copies and quoted from the New Living Translation of the Holy Bible.
I do at times use scripture from several different versions of the Bible such as NIV, New King James Version, King James Version etc.
Any and all ministers may freely use any of my sermons and post them anywhere that they want to.
After all, it is God’s Word and not our own!

Faith Is All We Need
Jesus answered and said unto them, go and shew John again those things which ye do hear and see; the blind receive their sight, and the lame walk, the lepers are cleansed, and the deaf hear, the dead are raised up, and the poor have the gospel preached unto them ( Matthew 11:4-5 ).
Faith is a subject that holds the interest of everyone.
The Bible says that faith comes by hearing the Word of God.
We can pray all day long and still not have faith.
We must listen to the Word of God, this produces faith.
God does not talk as man talks.
Man makes promises and never keeps them.
You cannot trust the word of man.
God makes promises and keeps them.
You can always trust the Word of God.
This is why faith is based on the Word of God, it is a sure thing; it is a solid foundation.
Heaven and earth may pass away, but the Word of God will endure forever.
God is the source of all faith.
