16 Oct 2016 – Greg Oliffe preaches on the Good News of Luke 4:1-30
God knows we face temptations, although God does not tempt us. When Jesus was tempted he used the scriptures to resist temptation and he remained free of sin. Although we need to do likewise and turn to scripture to help us resist temptation, we also need to accept that we will sin and fall short of the example Christ gave us. The good news is that Jesus has already paid the price for our sins and offers forgiveness to those who recognize their sin and turn back to accept God’s free gift of grace.
