The Lure of Greatness

This week is on Deuteronomy 6:13; Matthew 4:1-11. In the 3rd temptation, Jesus is offered complete power and control. We don’t have to give in to these temptations, the battle has been won and we celebrate that. By Pastor Paul Sausser

The Lure of Cheap Applause

The Lure of Cheap Applause

This week is on Deuteronomy 6:14-17; Matthew 4:1-7. In the 2nd temptation, Jesus is asked to do something spectacular, to win applause. This lure is not to prove one worthy of God’s love, but just for the ovation and praise of others. It is in God’s unconditional love that we find the lure of this temptation powerless. By Pastor Paul Sausser

The Lure of Self-Promotion

The Lure of Self-Promotion

This week is on Deuteronomy 8:1-3 and Matthew 4:1-4. In Jesus’ first temptation that wants Jesus to be self-promoting, Jesus shows us that we have no need to try to impress others with any personal adornments because our true identity is by being a child of God. True identity is not found in the applause from others. By Pastor Paul Sausser

Be Caring

Be Caring

This week is on 2 Samuel 9. In King David’s relationship with Mephibosheth we see David caring when Mephibosheth, Jonathon’s son, had nothing to give him in return. Kindness goes to those undeserving; caring for others is about fulfilling our promises to God to show a life of gratitude, even if there is a possibility of a threat. By Pastor Paul Sausser

Be Soft

Be Soft

This week is on Mark 5:21-24, 35-43. We might think of a soft person as being mild or meek, but definitely not a leader, but it is—Jesus is gentle of heart. So am I thoughtful, calm, and considerate in my dealings with others? Do I treat people like fine china? By Pastor Paul Sausser
