Satan said a lot of stuff to Christ to try to tempt Him. Last time, we started to cover the beginning of Christ's temptation and today we are going to finish it. There are some really interesting differences between Matthew and Luke especially. Let's dive in! Today's Reading: Matthew, 4:07-11 Mark 1:13, and Luke 4:05-13 … Continue reading Gospel Journey | Satan Claimed He Had “Authority”
It feels like it has been a while since we have returned after the baptism of Jesus because last week instead of focusing on the New Testament I continued 2 Samuel. (Also, I had the last three posts of this section already written so...it's been awhile for me.) Easter is approaching the next few weeks and… Continue reading Gospel Journey | Was Christ Tempted For Forty Days Or Fasting For Forty Days?

Let's start this off.… Continue reading Hell’s Purpose | Believer 101

There is just no point to get that passionate. It is not about our power, but the power of Christ in us. Never forget that.… Continue reading Song Sunday | Define Me (Jonny Diaz)
As the title says, this song is a warning, not a worship song. One, if you haven't heard before, you need to. It spoke a lot to me. "Waiting On The Night," By Casting Crowns Satan likes sin. Darkness likes sin. We are tempted to sin. Pieces we leave when we fall in temptation can… Continue reading Song Sunday | This Isn’t A Worship Song But A Warning (Casting Crowns)
