Temptation and Trust

March 1, 2020

Looking at the story in Matthew 4 about the temptation of Jesus in the wilderness, Josh walks us through the three tests that Jesus faced and how He responded. We see that Jesus is faced with temptations that continue to challenge us: self-sufficiency; how to walk in our identity; seeking notoriety; compromising a little; obtaining power to dominate; and the mindset that the ends justify the means. The apprenticeship of Jesus invites us into handling those tests the way Jesus did -- by trusting the Father -- instead of yielding to the empty promises attached to those temptations. The worship journey for this week: "Temptation and Trust." Matthew 4:1-11; Romans 8:31-39; 2 Kings 6:15-17.
