Sermon Series: 40 Days in the Desert: Faith Formed in the Wilderness
Sermon Title: Courageous Faith (3 of 6)
Scripture Reading: Matthew 4:5-7; John 2:13-22; 1 Corinthians 16:13-14
If you’re going to be the Messiah, you must have the loyalty of the religious leaders—the gatekeepers and caretakers of God’s covenant people. This is what the “temple temptation” in the wilderness is all about. But instead of choosing to use spectacle to gain followers, Jesus uses a bit of prophetic theater. In Courageous Faith (3 of 6), Pastor David shares how our zeal for the Lord ought to make us strong.
