"If then you have been raised with Christ, seek the things that are above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God. Set your minds on things that are above, not on things that are on earth. For you have died, and your life is hidden with Christ in God. When Christ who is your life appears, then you also will appear with him in glory." - Colossians 3:1-4

Matthew 4:5-7
Then the devil took him to the holy city and set him on the pinnacle of the temple and said to him, “If you are the Son of God, throw yourself down, for it is written,'He will command his angels concerning you,' and  'On their hands they will bear you up lest you strike your foot against a stone.' "

I mean come on!! How is this even a temptation? We can see the obvious first temptation after Jesus had been fasting for 40 days, to "turn these stones into bread." However, what on earth is Satan really trying to tempt Jesus with here? What if Jesus could have really looked like a Superstar in front of the people? Would they believe him then? We are halfway through our road to Easter and we are looking forward to joining back up in the Silk Mill as we continue in our series on the Temptations of Christ and how the enemy is still after us with the same temptations.
