The Temptation of Manipulation • Matthew 4:1-11 • David Baxley
“Jesus was willing to trust God’s plan and timing for him all the way to the cross. He experienced the hardest thing imaginable in his choice to obey his Heavenly Father in order to show the greatest demonstration of God’s love to us, by giving his life for us. He has shown us his love. Are you willing to take God at his Word and trust in his love, even when it’s hard, without needing other confirmations, and obey in the middle of the hard that God has you in?”
