Charlotte Layne, a long time member of Fork Union Baptist Church, is our first guest speaker today, she explains how she lost religion and found faith.

Have you chosen to take refuge in Christ?  Listen to Pastor Anthony's sermon on the Parable of the Mustard Seed.  In these passages, Jesus shows us how Christianity can grow from something as small as a tiny mustard seed into a tree in which birds can come and rest and make nests in it's branches.

Matthew 13: 24-30 “Focused or Distracted?”

In these passages, Jesus tells the Parable of the Weeds, Jesus is describing the kingdom of God.  He is sowing gospel seeds throughout the world and raising up Christians. But at the same time, the enemy is in the world spreading counterfeit seed. In its immature state, it isn't always simple to discern the differences between those who belong to the kingdom and those who do not.  We must remember to not let the weeds distract us from what God has for us in the field.

Is your heart ready to receive the living Word of God?  Will each of us allow the Lord to show us the seed He is ready to plant and harvest?  We can’t have a relationship with God if we don’t start with letting God have the keys to our hearts.  In today’s message, Pastor Anthony helps us to understand that each of our hearts is the starting point to understand, grow and deliver the Word of God.

Pastor Anthony speaks to us today and points out the biggest pressure a Christ follower can experience is from family.  Family is one of the biggest blessings given to us from God and they can also be the most distracting and aggravating things on earth.

Matthew 12: 38-45 “An Evil Generation Be Like…”

Pastor Anthony today points out that these passages are directed towards an evil generation that:

1. Demands a miraculous sign that Jesus is the Son of God
2. Refuses to repent
3. Refuses to seek God's wisdom
4. Follows a false religion

We must realize that the only way to defeat sin is through Christ Jesus.

Matthew 12: 22-37 “The Unforgivable Sin”

God wants to heal, the devil wants to devour us.  In reading through these passages, Pastor Anthony helps us to see that Jesus healed through the power of God and that we need to follow Jesus Christ instead of what we are used to following.  Jesus tells us that satan has a kingdom here on earth, that he is powerful and actively trying to devour us and that God's power is better and bigger than satan's power.

The Holy Spirit is the final witness that leads us to do God's will and draw us back to God.  If we reject the Holy Spirit there is no forgiveness.

Matthew 12: 14-21 “God’s Chosen Servant”

Jesus' actions in these passages display healing, humility, love, justice, encouragement, victory and hope, they are all visible and explained in these verses. 

Pastor Anthony helps us to understand the many prophesies that come true and how we cannot let our hearts become hardened to Jesus.
