Description

03 | Please

Who do we seek approval from? Who do we live to please?

In this third video from the Sermon on the Mount series, we take a look at Matthew 6:1-18. We’ll be challenged to think about the motives behind our actions and reflect on who we really live for.

In this passage, we’ll see the beauty in living to please our Father in heaven. Not to gain his approval but because we already have his love and acceptance in Jesus. We’ll see the difference between a life full of religious duty and a life lived in response to Gods grace.

–> The Sermon on the Mount series from Video Bible Talks is a six-video series of Bible teaching from Matthew 5-7 looking at what Jesus says about how to live as his disciples.

Possible Discussion Questions

  • If we’re honest with ourselves, do we do certain things to gain certain peoples approval? In what ways may we do this?
  • How does knowing what God has done for us free us to live for him? How is that different from the religious people in the passage?
