I know when I've asked others about this, answers are usually similar. Many times I hear how families have had problems to the point that certain family members don't speak or they've even separated themselves. Sometimes I hear stories about financial problems that have wiped out savings, and homes are even sold, so lesser costs can be acquired. The subject of illness may even become the dominating factor in peoples' lives. Loss of jobs and loss of loved ones are also desperate situations, to name just a few.

In fact, these sorts of things are simply symptoms marking a path which can only be conquered by the crucial, extraordinary, force of FAITH, which truly is the most critical issue in our lives.
You may be thinking, Pastor, why would you say that faith is the most critical issue when I can't pay my bills on time, and my wife is sick, and the car won't run? The answer is near you even in your mouth, the Word of Faith, which we preach! [Romans 10:8] Faith is the victory! [1 John 5:4] Yes, it's faith that pleases God, and faith that brought salvation to our souls, and faith that moves mountains!
At Liberty, you will hear a message to build your faith each time you come. Faith is always in season and faith never fails. Faith is what will carry you through the storms of life and faith will always cause you to hope. Follow me to Liberty this week, and hear something that will change your life forever for the good.
