March 10 (Lent 1)
Text: Luke 4:1-13 (Temptations of Jesus)
Sermon Title: Flee from the Idols of the Past
After 40 days in the desert, praying and fasting, the devil came to Jesus and tempted him three times.
Jesus was at most vulnerable and desperate state. But he defeated the temptation by not heeding to human desires but by obeying God’s desire.
When our human desires - “my most precious” become the centre of our worship, they become idols that we must leave behind.
