Pastor Sheldon Williams - Jan. 25/26
Matthew 4:1-11 -
1. Every temptation provides a consequence. The result depends on our response.
2. When temptations arise, they do so with a hungering for a response.
3. Temptation tries to motivate us to accomplish a short-term goal without consideration of the long-term impact.
4. God permits us to be tempted, but He doesn’t produce them.
5. Let no one say when he is tempted, “I am being tempted by God”; for God cannot be tempted by evil, and He Himself does not tempt anyone. [James 1:13]
6. Our human weakness can provide an opportunity for the display of our spiritual strength.
7. An individual cannot fully satisfy self and fully satisfy God; to do one means you have decided to disappoint the other.
8. There are times when temptations are masquerading as invitations to explore what has already been entertained.
9. Temptations are the influencers that encourage human “selfies” - selfishness, self-gratification, and self-empowerment.
