Summary of Bible Passage: Jesus warns his disciples to beware drifting into hypocrisy because they fear the consequences of trusting God sincerely - if, instead, we fear God, there is nothing left to fear!

Note: The first 13 minutes of the file below contain the (all-age) message. The very beginning, which didn't record, said, "It's a few days past Christmas so I want us to consider a story that happened a few days after the first Christmas (40 days to be exact), when Mary and Joseph took the 6-week old baby Jesus to Jerusalem."
