Sermon: Our Problem
Theme: We are people who are mired in sin and unable to overcome our weakness.
Purpose: We will understand our need for submission to God.
Scriptures: Genesis 2:15-17, 3:1-7 God’s commandment to not eat of the fruit of the knowledge of Good and Evil.
Matthew 4:1-11 Jesus’ temptation in the wilderness by the devil.
What role does temptation and trial play in our process of sorting out our priorities? How is it that we come to examine what we truly believe rather than the things we wish we believed? What is the path we need to walk in order to come to a place where we are able to be authentic in our faith? What causes people to be more focused on their own will and desires rather than on what would truly be fulfilling and joyful?
