THE TEMPTATION OF CHRISTMAS (MATT. 4:9)
Intro: What lesson will you take away from this season?
I. Worship is Response to Revelation (not observation)
Luke 2:17, Is. 6:1
II. The Temptation of Christ - the devil wants to get your attention; he wants you to do something
III. The Application of Christmas
- Priority - God first
- Exclusivity - God only
- Energy - Give power to resist
Conclusion: Worship restores us and gives us the energy to resist temptation. Our declaration for Christmas is that Christ is enough. We will not surrender our worship for Christ to a commercial holiday season.
