Deceived by Empty Promises from Trevor Nashleanas on Vimeo.


The world promises life, love and happiness to anyone who would love it and live according to its impossible standards. The problem is that these promises are empty. No matter how much we love the world it won’t love us back. We can never do enough, be enough or say enough to secure the world’s approval and acceptance. The good news is we don’t have to. God has given us his love through Jesus and that love will expel any desire for the world and its ways. When we receive God’s love for us in Christ it will redirect our affections away from the world and back to him.
