Sermon Preview

Last week, our sermon text pointed us to the sobering truth that we have an enemy and adversary in the devil. In Matthew 4:1-11 we read of the devil tempting Jesus in the wilderness. Jesus being fully man faced the temptations of the devil and can sympathize with us in our weakness. Jesus being fully God was able to withstand the devil and never succumb to sin.

Our hope is not found in what we can do, but instead in what Jesus Christ has already done and accomplished for my sake as a child of God.

Serving Christ alongside you,
Pastor Kirk
