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.
