Temptation+ (Oct. 23, 2022)

Worship Service

This Sunday we look at the temptation of Jesus in Mark 1:12-13. Mark's account is very brief, leaving us to wonder what happened when Jesus was tempted? His account highlights the fact that spiritual conflict is inevitable for those who follow Jesus. We digress into the other accounts and look at how Jesus was tempted by Satan and some ways that he experienced in life.

Sunday School

This week the kids learned about when God made a covenant with Abraham.


  • God chose a man named Abram to use in His plan.
  • God promised Abram to make his family a great nation and bless the whole world through his family line.
  • God changed his name to Abraham and promised a family more numerous than the stars.

Christ connection

God promised to bless all the world through Abraham. God sent Jesus from His home in heaven to be born on earth into Abraham’s family. Through Jesus, all the nations of the earth are blessed because Jesus saves people from their sins.

Key Passage

I know that the Lord is great,

    that our Lord is greater than all gods.

The Lord does whatever pleases him,

    in the heavens and on the earth,

    in the seas and all their depths.

Psalm 135:5-6

Big picture question

Who is in control of everything? God is in control of everything in heaven and on earth. Nothing is outside of God’s good plan.
