Jesus Was Tempted by Bread (Matthew 4:1-4)

/Get the Sermons Automatically

After fasting in the desert for 40 days and 40 nights, Satan tempted Jesus to turn rocks into bread that He could eat. This interaction and Jesus' response point to our own vulnerability in becoming enslaved, sometimes even by good things, and to our need to find life in Him. Jesus feeds and gives life in a way that bread never could.

Is it possible that we're being enslaved and kept from finding true, deep life by everyday things like food?
