"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 

 

The Cry to be Relevant

Mar 4, 2018

Matthew 4:1-4
And the tempter came and said to him, “If you are the Son of God, command these stones to become loaves of bread.”

Lent is a season of confession and repentance. Because of this it is also a season of great temptation and the reminder that our struggle is not just against flesh and blood but our struggle in these bodies is a spiritual struggle. Satan comes to Jesus and tempts him in three ways and over the next three weeks, we'll be taking  deeper look at what this means for the Gospel and what it means for us. This first temptation is to turn stones into bread and to make the hungers of the body more important than the hungers and thirsts of the spirit. Yet Jesus is stalwart in his response and unlike Adam and Eve, he shows us a way through the wilderness of temptation.
