Tempted and Tried

The first Sunday of Lent takes us into the wilderness. It's a place filled with jackals, sand, hot wind, and the Devil. We also  find a few angels and Jesus out there. Bonhoeffer once wrote, "So the Chrisitian, too, belongs not in the seclusion of a cloiseterd life but in the thick of foes." Jesus showed us how to live in the world as it is. The focal text for this Sunday reminds us of this truth.

A robust understanding of sin and evil is one of the most practical things we can possess. R.T. Kendall said, "A solid, sound doctrine of evil is essential both to good theological foundation and also to practical Christian living." I hope you'll join us at FBC Waco this week as we begin the long walk to the empty tomb. We start on the piccacle of the temple.

Text: Matthew 4:1-11
