This week we study, “Lead us not into temptation and deliver us from evil.” That begs the question, what tempts you? Does chocolate tempt you? Do rich foods tempt you? Those are the simple things, but temptation can go much deeper! Does despair tempt you, does hate tempt you, does anger tempt you, does jealousy tempt you? This prayer reminds us of how temptation can lead to evil and God calls us away from both!
Last week we discussed how forgiveness frees us from our past, and when we pray about temptation we are praying about our futures. We are praying about putting our faith in God’s hands. Join us this Sunday as we think about temptation, evil, and how God holds our future! Join us in-person and online via Facebook Live or Youtube Live on Sunday at 11 am.
Grace and Peace,
