Message: The Temptation of Jesus

This Sunday, we will continue to look at the life that Jesus modeled for us. As we see how he lived, we see how we can live as well.

Two weeks ago we looked at the Baptism of Jesus as he heard God say,

“This is my Son, whom I love; with him I am well pleased.”

God is pleased with Jesus before any recorded miracles, or healings, or preaching. Why? Because Jesus is God’s son. He’s pleased with us too. Why? Because we are his!

But there is opposition to this truth. Satan does not want us to know the truth about God and what he thinks about us. He wants us to doubt God (and he does a pretty good job at this). God knows about Satan’s strategy, however, and he works things out so that we can not only stand firm against Satan’s lies, but actually grow in faith when we encounter them.

That’s what we will see this week when Jesus is tempted by Satan in the desert.

 

To prepare, read Luke 4:1-14.

I also want thank Dallas for preaching last Sunday– and everyone who made the service possible in my absence. We had a wonderful time at my niece’s wedding in Philadelphia.

Looking forward to Sunday!

 

Grace and peace,

Doug

Prayer Ministry

Do you need prayer? Our prayer ministry wants to pray for you! Look for Prayer Request cards by the offering basket. Fill one out and put it in the offering basket– or find the prayer table after the service and pray with someone.
