Overcoming Temptation

Sermon text: Luke 4:1-13 Every believer faces temptation. Jesus did, and we should expect to as well. We can learn a lot about how to deal with temptation from how Jesus handled it. The core of His success was the filling of the Holy Spirit and the power of God’s Word.

Someone surrendered to Christ should no longer have these characteristics. Instead, believers should be holy and righteous.
