Our faith sometimes falters. Although we believe in God and have received His saving grace through faith in Jesus Christ, we have times and even seasons when our faith weakens. We may begin by doubting God's presence during a trying time. We may doubt His goodness and even His existence. But God's indwelling Holy Spirit patiently prompts our hearts, drawing us back to a place of confidence, trust, and hope. Even Abraham, that great example of outstanding faith, stumbled at times. Genesis 12:10-20 reveals one of those weaker moments in Abraham's faith journey. In these verses we read that Abraham neglected God's promise, allowed fear to formulate his decisions, and willingly entered into deception. We also read that God graciously protected Abraham and Sarah, thereby preserving His promise. God had promised to make Abraham into a great nation and Abraham's lapse in faith could not prevent God from fulfilling His unconditional covenant. When we falter, God is still faithful.
There are two ways to listen to the semons on this website.
Click the "Play" icon (the triangle) shown along with the sermon title. The sermon will start playing right away (few second delay). Once playing starts, you can move through the audio with the slider/progress indicator. Note: Internet Exporer users may need to click the play icon twice.
Click on the "download audio file" text. This will use the audio player you have associated with MP3s. This will most likely download the audio to your computer so there will be a delay as the file downloads. The files are fairly small (usually less than 10Meg) so they should download quickly.
