Temptation: How Jesus Resisted and So Can You (ARBC Worship from January 16, 2022)

Would you turn with me to Matthew 4:1-11? As we mentioned earlier, we observe a day that I wish we would never need to observe: Sanctity of Human Life Sunday. And, again, we are grateful to the ministry of Alternatives Pregnancy Center for sharing about their ministry with us, as they have every January. This is a day that we not only observe the sanctity of human life at the start of life, we do so for end of life matters, for those from other countries, genders, races–all who are imagebearers of God.

As Jesus began His ministry, Mark 1:12-13 simply says, “12 The Spirit immediately drove him out into the wilderness. 13 And he was in the wilderness forty days, being tempted by Satan. And he was with the wild animals, and the angels were ministering to him.” Brief, clear, to the point. Yet, let’s take a look at Matthew 4:1-11 that fills in the events that happened with Jesus’ temptation.
