III. Temptation of Jesus

7. Temptation of Jesus Christ in the Desert

He knows us better than we know ourselves and loves us better than we love ourselves. So he does what every parent does. ...

8. Overcoming Temptation In Christ

Our pilgrimage on earth cannot be exempt from trial. We progress by means of trial. No one knows himself except through trial, or receives a crown except after victory, or strives except against an enemy or temptations. ...

9. 8 Ways to Beat Temptation

10. Temptation Is Always a Battle Between Now and Later

Consider what happens when we're tempted. Temptation isn't just a battle between good and bad or what's best and what's not best. Temptation is always a battle between now or later. ...

IV. Raising of Lazarus

12. Raising of Lazarus - Timing of Jesus

13. God Is Always on Time

Remember two things: One, God is never in a hurry. And two, God is never late. God's timing is always perfect. ...

15. The Simple Things

Seeking God begins with recognizing who He is and then inviting Him into our lives as Lord and Savior. ...
