Collide: When Grace Hits... Our Temptation
Read Matthew 4:1-11
“Temptation only proves our need for a savior, and that it never goes away proves our need for continuing grace” ~Asil Treblig
When grace hits our temptation there is victory! But we have to…
1. Realize our reality.
· Temptation will come.
· The Devil is real.
2. Realize our dependence on God.
· His will.
· His Word.
3. Realize our trust in God.
· His timing.
· His way.
4. Realize our inheritance from God.
· His riches.
· His glory.
5. Realize our power from God.
· To resist temptation.
· Over the Devil.
