What do we need to watch out for as a Christian? What might blow us off course as we try to follow Jesus?

In this fifth video from the Sermon on the Mount series, we take a look at Matthew 7:1-20 where Jesus points out dangers for us to ‘look out’ for so we can stay on course with him. He helps us to avoid things that will lead us away from him and instead shows us how we can keep following Jesus as he leads us home to eternal life with him.
