IS THERE POWER IN THE
In this sermon outline we look at the unchanging power of God. He is not limited
to Bible Days and stories of the Bible, but His power to save, change and
deliver is present today to work in our lives.
I. GOD IS UNCHANGING IN POWER!
A. The first reason is that He is unchanging.
