Tumbling in the Sand
“Your faith has made you well.” ?? My faith! Hardly.
I came to Jesus, for sure. But it was not out of faith. It was out of desperation.

Lately, I’ve been having people contact me about being unable to read whole sermons on my blog, thinking that this may be a technical difficulty. It isn’t! You are doing everything right! I just don’t post the text of my whole sermon (and this one, I posted particularly little of it since the memorized monologue only follows the outline of the transcript rather than word-for-word); instead, I post an audio file—so, if you click on the play button below the text references, you can listen to me preach the sermon (make sure your browser and plugins are up to date—sometimes the little player doesn’t load if you aren’t up to date). If, by chance, you would like a copy of the full transcript, please feel free to email me (pebblefaith at gmail dot com) and I will be happy to send it to you!
