Jesus faced real temptations just as we do. Yet, as the perfect Son of God, he was always able to overcome. Having been there, Jesus not only understands what we’re going through, he also shows where we find the strength to win the battle. Matthew 4:1-11
Tentatio is the testing, temptation, and trial that occur when God and his Word intersect with us and our world. God uses tentatio to drive us away from self and to his promises alone.
Sermon Text: Psalm 119:65-72
