04 | Trust

What do we live for? Where do we put our hopes and dreams?

In this fourth video from the Sermon on the Mount series, we take a look at Matthew 6:19-34. We see how so much of the stuff we put our hope and trust into will not last. Jesus shows us that those things cannot deliver in the way we want them to.

Jesus helps us to see where we really need to put our trust. He gives us a greater vision to set our sights on. He urges us to trust in a Good Father and his promise of eternal life, rather than the things in this world that ultimately always let us down.
