Bishop Rudolph W. McKissick, Jr. preaches a sermon entitled, “Request Granted” at Empowerment Temple in Baltimore, MD.
Matthew 9:27 – 31
A blind person can move but they need direction.
There are people who can see but are still blind.
Some people can see but don’t have their own direction.
Some people can see but only go where other people tell them to go.
Some people are defined by other peoples authority over there life.
God wants you do be independent enough to respect peoples opinions, but not be defined by their opinion.
You can be in the presence of Jesus and still be blind.
Some of us come to church but still have no direction.
Connections have everything to do with direction.
You should not be listening to everybody.
You can’t be in covenant with everyone.
Who you hangout with may reveal what is wrong with you.
You hang out with what’s familiar to you.
A real friend is somebody who can check you and cover you at the same time.
The devil mistakes where your power comes from.
