January 4, 2015 Sermon Notes
A New Year | A New Perspective for Anxiety
1. An Eternal Perspective trusts God will take care of His own (Matthew 6:25-31)
The idea here is that we should not fret over temporary things, but focus on the everlasting things.
2. An Eternal Perspective guards us from the sin & stress of idol worship (Matthew 6:32)
Often our struggle with anxiety is due to striving so very hard for the earthly treasures we think will make us happy.
3. An Eternal Perspective pursues God, never wasting a day (Matthew 6:33-34)
Aim at Heaven and you will get Earth ‘thrown in’: aim at Earth and you will get neither. – C. S. Lewis
