The Preached Word - Minister Sherry Flewellen-Ervin
Scripture: Mark 4:35-41
Sermon Title: “What Are Your Storms Trying to Teach You?”
This past Sunday, Minister Sherry Flewellen-Ervin calmly informed us about the perfect storm in our lives. The scripture of reference was Mark 4:35-41 and the title of her sermon was “What Are Your Storms Trying to Teach You?” The message resonated strongly with those in attendance.
Jesus asked the disciples “do you still have no faith?” Minister Sherry says he asked this because the disciples had already witnessed so many miracles even before the storm. The points were:
1. Storms teach us to pray
2. Storms strengthen our faith
3. Storms teach us we can’t do anything without God
4. Storms teach us how to surrender
Once again, if you missed the word on Sunday, you missed a great lesson. Please join us each Sunday at 10 a.m.
