Jesus Gets Us: Anxiety

June 9, 2024 Speaker: Jay Pound Series: Jesus Gets Us

Scripture: Matthew 6:25–34

Two radical claims of the incarnation 

  • Jesus became fully human without ceasing to be fully God (Jn. 1.1, 14)
  • Jesus understands the temptations, stresses and struggles of being human (Heb. 4.15)


Jesus understands our anxiety for meeting the daily needs of life (6.25)

  • Our anxiety motivates us to run after money and possessions (6.31-32)


Jesus’ response to those wrestling with worry and anxiety:

  • God is good! And he can be trusted care and provide for us (6.26, 30)

Stop running after money and possessions and start running toward God and his Kingdom (6.33)
