The Story: Chp 23- Jesus’ Ministry Begins

Sermon for March 4th, 2018


Jesus begins his earthly ministry first being baptized in the Jordan, as he anointed for ministry, then he is led into the desert to be tempted by Satan. The devil comes to divide. He is a divider, a separator. Every time you see communities divided, families divided, or hearts divided, there you see the work of Satan. Most of all, when you see people divided or separated from god, you see the work of Satan. That was the intent of the snake in the Garden of Eden: he succeeded in separating Adam and Eve from God. Now Jesus demands a rematch, this time between Satan and himself, the second Adam. Satan cannot and will not create a wedge between Jesus and his Father.

We are going to spend some time today looking at the enemy and how we can combat him.

Listen to the message today and be challenged by God’s Word.
