Temptation Religion Round 3 sermon video. Round 3 (Luke 4:9-13) It’s interesting to me that the last round of temptations dealt with religion. Jesus was exhausted. He’s had no food in forty days. He is weak. He is vulnerable. Many people come to church at those times. They are exhausted in life. They are starving for something to revive them. They are weak. They are vulnerable. That’s when the devil comes with religion. “Jump into religion,” he says. “God will fix everything for you. Test God. Your life’s a mess. Just pray a prayer and go to church a few times. Get your fire insurance policy.”

Sermon notes

Temptation Religion Round 3 sermon video Luke 4:9-13

Scriptures: 1 Corinthians 10:13; Luke 4:9-11; Psalm 91:11-12; Matthew 7:15; Psalm 91:1; Luke 4:12; Deuteronomy 6:16-17; Luke 4:13

The devil again attacked the identity of Jesus. We talked about this in round one. A fighter will target a location and continue to hammer it. A boxer will continuously pound the opponent’s body. A kick boxer will continuously kick the opponent’s thigh. They break down the opponent by pounding the same spot. The devil will continuously pound our identity and there is nothing that does that in better than religion. Either you’re a no good sinner (a guy once tried to tell me I was a maggot), or your sins don’t matter to God. Two out of the three temptations, 66% of the devil’s punches will pound your identity… (continue sermon notes)
