Matthew 9: 35-38 “The Church That God Uses”

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

In these passages today, Pastor Anthony teaches us about 3 actions that the church needs to take:

  1. GO and spread the Good News of the Lord, we need to seek those who are lost.
  2. COMPASSION drives us into action so we can meet both physical and spiritual needs, this is how we build God's kingdom.
  3. VISION is always asking ourselves "where are we going next?  What's our next ministry"?  There should be no time for laziness in the church.

We should let the size of our God determine the size of our goals.

Matthew 9: 18-34 “Desperate for Jesus”

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

Pastor Anthony delivers a powerful message of faith from these passages found in the book of Matthew.  He helps us to understand that Jesus will always respond to our desperate needs and make us whole.  In these passages, Jesus performs miracles that give life, heal the sick, give sight to the blind and heals a possessed man.

If you believe, Jesus will open your eyes, we need to seek after Him wholeheartedly.

2 Corinthians 12:7-10 “God’s Kintsugi”

Posted by fork union baptist in II Corinthians, 2020 sermons

Guest pastor James Benson, Fork Union Military Academy Chaplain, delivers a timely and powerful sermon today given the current broken climate of our country.

We see broken pieces all around us in relationships, communities, families and more.  With God's help anything can be fixed and be more beautiful than before.  God uses all of us in His story of redemption, not one of us is beyond His reach.

Kintsugi is the Japanese art of putting broken pottery pieces back together with gold — built on the idea that in embracing flaws and imperfections, you can create an even stronger, more beautiful piece of art.

Matthew 9: 9-13 “Matthew’s Story”

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

In this very important passage, Matthew provides his testimony by saying he was a lost cause and unsatisfied spiritually but Jesus knew He could do great things through Matthew.  

When was the last time we introduced Jesus to our friends?  Jesus said "Follow Me" and Matthew did.  We need to follow in the same footsteps of Matthew and bring others to know Him.

In today's sermon, Pastor Anthony explains there are 3 things to learn in these passages today:

  1. We must be dedicated and willing to do what it takes in our mission of getting people to Christ.

Matthew 8: 28-34 “Demons are Real”

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

The devil is still at work in this world and many are trapped under satan's control.  Pastor Anthony teaches us that we need to put on the firm armor of God to keep the devil away and stand firm against his schemes.

We must not be afraid of the cost to us if we can save even one soul!  We are God's prized possession.

Jonah:1-4 “My Saturday Morning Adventures - The Story of Jonah”

Posted by fork union baptist in 2020 sermons, Jonah

Today's guest speaker, Gary Osteen, tells us about the story of Jonah and helps us to understand that a true prophet speaks for God.  When God calls, we must listen and obey.

Do we say thank you to God or are we angry when things don't go our way?  God's goal is not for our comfort but for our character - generosity is always part of God's plan.  We need to share the gospel and walk the path that God asks us to walk.

 

 

Matthew 8: 23-27 “Storms and Miracles”

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

Today's sermon encourages us to be true disciples of Jesus by not staying on the shore but by getting on the boat and following Him.  Many ask the question, "why follow Jesus if storms keep coming?"  The answer  is that a "real" follower of Jesus would rather be on a boat in a storm with Him than to experience a storm without Him.  We must call on the Lord to save us.
