Podcast – The Way: Resisting Temptation
June 19th, 2022 | Barry Swindon
In this week’s teaching we’ll take a look at the actionable practice of resisting temptation in order to be more like Jesus. We will examine Jesus’ own life and experience, particularly when he goes out into the desert in Luke 4 to be tempted by the devil. Jesus is tempted to give in, to prove himself, and to fill his need for love and self-worthby any other means than by looking to God for fulfillment. Recognizing that Jesus has the same choices we do now when it comes to temptation and imitating how he countered those temptations is a key practice for Christians today.
This Sunday we will also recognize and remember together the stories of enslaved Black Americans as part of our commitment to engage in racial justice and intercultural competence – something we feel Jesus compels us to participate in a church as part of our discipleship journey. There will be a raffle giveaway as well as a tasting event after service!
