V14-16: 
14: Because he "loves me," says the Lord, "I will rescue him; I will protect him, for he acknowledges my name.
15: He will call on me, and I will answer him; I will be with him in trouble, I will deliver him and honor him.
16: With long life I will satisfy him and show him my salvation."
 
Psalm 91 is a prayer/praise to God.  During these times our faith is being tested.  We are comforted and protected when we are close to the arms of God.  We are protected for eternity.

Matthew 5:13-16 “Salt and Light”

Posted by fork union baptist in Book of Matthew, 2020 sermons

You are the salt of the earth.  But if the salt loses its saltiness, how can it be made salty again?  It is no longer good for anything, except to be thrown out and trampled underfoot.

You are the light of the world.  A town built on a hill cannot be hidden.  Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl.  Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house.  In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven.

Pastor Anthony answers the questions:
- What are we doing with the salt and light? 
- Are we spreading them?

Sermon date: 2/23/2020

*Blessed are those who are persecuted because of righteousness, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.

*Blessed are you when people insult you, persecute you and falsely say all kinds of evil against you because of Me.

Rejoice and be glad, because great is your reward in heaven, for in the same way they persecuted the prophets who were before you.

These are the last two beatitudes Jesus delivered from the sermon on the mount.  Join us as the Lord teaches us to be an unashamed Christ follower and that He holds us accountable for our sins.  We should all strive to live a life that is pleasing to Him.
