Title: Resisting temptation

Bible verse: Mark 1: 12–13

Immediately the Spirit drove Him into the wilderness. And He was there in the wilderness forty days, tempted by Satan, and was with the wild beasts; and the angels ministered to Him.

Message: Like Jesus, we strive to prove ourselves in temptation and trials.


  • Jesus, the last Adam, resisted Satan’s temptation and put the will of God above all else.
  • The new creation has been laid into us through baptism with water and the Spirit. We are on the way to becoming a new Adam.
  • Let us use the strength of the Holy Spirit to resist temptation and give priority to the will of God.
  • Those who make such an effort will receive the ministration of the angels.
