The Fast I Choose

The Fast I Choose

Passage: Matthew 4:1-11

Speaker: The Rev. Deacon L. Ann Douglas

Series: Lent

Category: Faith

Life's temptations often draw us away from the work God has given us to do. In Christ, we see and are given another way to live.

It is easy to be distracted by our desires, and to be tempted to believe that the wrong we would do is not really wrong, especially if it will benefit us. Jesus' experience of temptation is a lesson to us: with God's help, we need not give in to false dreams that take us far from the love of God.
