It Is Written

Series: New Thru 30

Message: It Is Written
Matthew 4:1-11

Jesus is in the desert for 40 days, fasting.  No food for 40 days and then Satan comes to tempt him.  What would have happened if Jesus made his decisions the way we do?  He is offered food, a chance to prove God is God, offered power and control.  At one point Satan even quotes scripture to Jesus.  But to each temptation Jesus response is, “it is written.”  In other words, this is what God’s word says. How different would your life be, if you made decisions based, not by how you felt but by what God’s word said.  The problem for many, is we don’t know God word well enough to know.  This is where “New Thru 30” comes in.
