Matthew 15: 21-28 “Obstacles to Overcome"

 

Pastor Anthony lets us know today that if we want to receive blessings from God, there will always be obstacles to overcome.  In these passages, Jesus does not answer a Gentile women's request to heal her daughter right away, He however knew the full depth of her faith and He was seeking to draw it out.

Listen to this sermon to learn more about overcoming obstacles to our faith.
