A Word from Pastor Alex
Our recent sermons focus on our Lord’s forty days of fasting and temptation. Matthew begins his account with, “…Jesus led up of the Spirit into the wilderness to be tempted by the devil.” Luke completes the story: “And Jesus returned in the power of the Spirit into Galilee”. Satan is vanquished and the Son of Man emerges victor. Most of us do not think in abstracts, but in images and pictures.
The battle is between the tempter and Jesus the man. Even the angels enter to minister to Him only after the devil left Jesus. On display is the Last Adam in weakness, wholly dependent on His Father. Think of it, the Lord relies on the power of Scripture and the Spirit’s might to repulse each attack. “It is written…” There is no arguing or debate with the devil.
The passages Christ selects provide us with marching orders in our testings. The Lord unmasks the methods and cunning of Satan. Jesus the man also grasps human strength and frailty. In Christ, our gifts and abilities abound. In Adam, we persevere through fears, struggles and conflicts. We have, the apostle Paul reminds us, “…this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellency of the power may be of God, and not of us.” Ordinary men made extraordinary by the tasks given to us. Men, not angels, express Calvary’s glory.
During this time of withdrawal, stay prayerful and take care of your loved ones and their needs. Stay in contact with one another.
“Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might.”
