Scripture includes: Genesis 2:15-17; 3:1-7 and Matthew 4:1-11
Rev. Dr. Libby Grammer will preach a sermon entitled, “Who are you, really?”
Jesus’s temptation in the desert at the beginning of his ministry was a series of tests to show who he really is. Of course, he passed with flying colors! How is our response to temptations and tests going? How can this season of spiritual growth during Lent help us manifest the kind of response Jesus would give, rather than the usual, sinful human responses?
Today is the First Sunday in Lent. Lent is the season in which we anticipate Jesus’ final trip to Jerusalem and the self-giving nature of love shown in his passion and death. The season begins with Ash Wednesday and extends for forty days through Saturday of Holy Week. Sundays are excluded from Lent, being regarded as feast days in the midst of the forty-day fast. Lent is a strongly penitential season. The liturgical color is purple, used to symbolize penance, preparation, sacrifice.
