Shaped for Resistance (March 5th, 2017)

We can resist anything, except temptation, right? On this first Sunday in Lent, we hear two very different stories of temptation: Adam and Eve tempted by the serpent in the Garden (Genesis 2:15-17; 3:1-7), and Jesus tempted by the devil in the wilderness (Matthew 4:1-11). Looking at these encounters, we discover why we can’t face temptation on our own, and how Jesus can reshape our heart and mind, so that we can think faithfully, truly, and well when we encounter evil.
