Fighting Against Worry (Matthew 6:25-34)Pastor Justin Pratt, July 30, 2017
Part of the Stand Up and Fight! series, preached at a Sunday Evening service
Are you a worrier? Maybe your spouse is? Do you have anxiety about the things of day to day life? Jesus preached about that very topic during the Sermon on the Mount. Tonight, Pastor Justin showed us what Jesus said about worry and anxiety.
As a Christian, worrying is pointless and disobedient. It shows a lack of faith and understanding of God! It hampers you efforts for today and will drag you down!
If you are prone to worry, follow this plan that Jesus laid forth and live your life day to day!

25Therefore I say unto you, Take no thought for your life, what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink; nor yet for your body, what ye shall put on. Is not the life more than meat, and the body than raiment? 26Behold the fowls of the air: for they sow not, neither do they reap, nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feedeth them. Are ye not much better than they? 27Which of you by taking thought can add one cubit unto his stature? 28And why take ye thought for raiment? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow; they toil not, neither do they spin: 29And yet I say unto you, That even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these. 30Wherefore, if God so clothe the grass of the field, which to day is, and to morrow is cast into the oven, shall he not much more clothe you, O ye of little faith? 31Therefore take no thought, saying, What shall we eat? or, What shall we drink? or, Wherewithal shall we be clothed? 32(For after all these things do the Gentiles seek:) for your heavenly Father knoweth that ye have need of all these things. 33But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you. 34Take therefore no thought for the morrow: for the morrow shall take thought for the things of itself. Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof. (KJV)
