Sermons on Temptation

Lenten Heart Cleaning

3rd Sunday in Lent, John 2:13-22
So, this week, when you find yourself doing some kind of cleaning, pause, picture Jesus cleaning the temple out, and be reminded how Jesus has cleansed you with His blood, and empowered by His grace, examine your heart, what sin am I clinging to?

Examine Yourselves

19th Sunday after Pentecost, 2 Corinthians 13:5-8
Jesus lived and died for you! Jesus lives inside of you. But that examination question is good because it causes us to live in repentance. To confess our sins, to be strengthened by Jesus’ forgiveness who lives in us and to clear out the bad thinking, to change bad behaviors and pursue what is right and good. That’s the Christian that you are.
