New You Resolution Day 17

Fasting confession: Erica and I got into a heated argument on Sunday night.  We both were not seeing the other perspective.  It took a good hour to work through the situation and come to reconciliation.  The peace at the end was sweet and sincere.  However, the pre-peace atmosphere was quite rough.

How strange?  It was Sunday. We have had a wonderful church experience.  We were praying and fasting.  We were tempted to be selfish and we bit the bait.  😦

Jesus was tempted during his wilderness/fasting experience in Matthew chapter 4.  However, Jesus was perfect in the test.  He flawlessly quoted scripture to ward off the devil’s deception.  In February, our sermon series will be diving into this specific topic of temptation.  Look over that chapter if you get a chance.  It will be a powerful study on the three types of temptation.  When we consider how we are tempted today, our temptation generally goes back to one of the same three that Jesus faced.  Temptation to satisfy our Appetite, Acceptance, and Ambition.

How is your fast going? The church-wide fast will conclude Saturday night.  Sunday, will be quite special. Come expecting a great day.

All for now,

Robin
