Worship Sermon Series – Lenten Season 2020
Week 1 “When Quoting Scripture Isn’t Enough”
Scripture: Matthew 4:1-11
When Jesus spent 40 days fasting and praying, he was tempted by the devil to renounce his calling and abdicate his role in God’s plan for a new role that would promise him power and popularity. Jesus was strong enough to face those temptations with courage and see through the tempter’s agendas. When we face temptations, we do so with the help of One who has gone before us, One who knows what it means to “Worship the Lord your God, and serve only him” in the middle of chaotic forces pulling us away.
