temptation-of-jesusThis week we are continuing our study of the Gospel of Mark and looking at Mark 1:12-13. This is the Mark’s account of Satan tempting Jesus in the wilderness.

When you read it, you’ll see that it is brief– very brief! We will have to visit Matthew 4:1-11 to fill in some of the details. But this is an important experience in Jesus’ life– and it’s important for us too.

A couple other passages I plan to mention are Romans 5:3-5 and Hebrews 4:14-16. Each of these are relevant to what we’ll be talking about this Sunday. Read these scriptures and see what you think– you may be surprised what God tells you!

Also, if you would like to help with some service opportunities in our new meeting place (Hilltop Community Church Fellowship Hall), please e-mail me ( and we can talk. A couple of things that you can help with are:

1) Coming early on Sunday morning (8:45am) to brew the coffee for everyone.

2) Cleaning up the room after the service (vacuum, wipe down counters, etc.)

In the days and weeks ahead, I can meet with Hilltop folks and see other ways we can help keep the facility neat and ready.

Have a great Saturday…

Looking forward to Sunday!


Grace and peace,
