Temptation isn't new. From the apple in the garden, to the guy with the cute smile, to the slightly illegitimate business deal, we all face temptation. But why can't we just walk away?
In this 4-part series, Andy Stanley takes a closer look at the temptations Jesus faced in the desert in order to identify the driving forces behind the temptations we face every day. Once we realize what is behind temptation, and what is at stake every time we're tempted, we can find the confidence to respond as Jesus did.
Pause is so excellent! We used it in our Sun School class and now are using it with teens. The message about temptation and what is at stake every time we face temptation is simple, but profound. Seeing how Jesus handled temptation and how we can live victoriously are woven throughout the study.
Do we trust our heavenly Father? Do we know what's at stake? The lessons are terrific and lend themselves to soul searching and great discussions in groups.
