Summer on the Mount: Control and Worry Redefined

Sermon on the Mount - Control and Worry Redefined sermon slides     Sermon on the Mount - Control and Worry Redefined sermon notes

In Matthew 6:25-34 and 7:7-11, Jesus addresses the kind of worry that is a restless, anxious care about temporal things - the here and now. He speaks to the natural question: "If I choose God as my master and place my value and source of security in heaven, who will take care of my daily needs on earth?" Jesus gives three reasons why we should not worry: 1. God cares for his creatures, and we are of even more value; 2. He "dresses" the flowers of the field in beauty and cares even more for his children; and 3. Our heavenly father knows our needs. This sermon also addresses God's promises, His values and steps to overcome worry.

From Series: "Summer on the Mount"

In this most famous sermon of all time, we will learn what life looks like when lived according to the Kingdom of Jesus Christ. We will also learn just how just how revolutionary Jesus' teaching was and still is in our culture today. Jesus sets a high bar when it comes to topics like judging others, lust, marriage, false religion, money and how we treat others. While we will never live up to the holy standards set forth in this sermon, Jesus practiced what He preached, fulfilling these standards in our place. Jesus now calls us to live as members of His kingdom so that the world sees Him.
