How does Jesus combat the temptation of Satan? By remembering the Word of God!
Sermon preached on January 12, 2020.
QUESTIONS TO CONSIDER:
- Why was Jesus to go into the wilderness (desert) to be tempted by Satan?
- What are some parallels to Jesus’ time in the desert and the Israelites wandering in the desert during their exodus?
- Why is it important to know scripture when being tempted? What is the result if you do and what’s at stake if you don’t? (For further discussion read James 1:13-15 and discuss the meaning of those verses.)
YOUR CALL TO ACTION:
- Of the three temptations you struggle most with (temptation to be relevant, temptation to be exceptional or the temptation to be powerful), what is something you could do this week to fight against that temptation? This week or this year make a commitment to read God’s Word even if it is a few verses a day.
