In the final wilderness temptation, Jesus faces the most difficult challenge yet. If he’s truly the Messiah, how will he come to rule over the nations of the earth? The devil offers Jesus power over all the kingdoms of the world, but Jesus chooses the cross instead of the sword. In No Shortcuts in the Kingdom (4 of 6), Pastor David reveals how we must patiently endure hardship and wait on God’s salvation.
