March 5, 2017. Do we need a kind of North Star in our lives? Today we hear the Gospel story of Jesus being tempted in the wilderness. How did he know he was being tempted? Pastor Penny preaches on this text and says that he knew because what the devil was offering didn’t match up with his mission. Our mission, like Jesus’, is to help and care for others. Knowing this helps us to know when we’re being tempted. And we can resist temptation because of our loving relationship with God, a relationship that becomes our North Star that will guide us home.
