His Mission and Method”
Thursday, February 11, 2016
After Jesus’ baptism came the battle! He faced a severe time of testing in the wilderness by the Devil himself. But Jesus passed the test and defeated each of the Devil’s temptations with the Word of God. Times of testing come to all of us. And in life’s tests, we too can expect to face temptations just as Jesus did. However, we can also face life’s tests with confidence when we respond to temptations as Jesus modeled for us in Matthew 4:1-11.
Worship begins at 10:30 a.m. and we are conveniently located one mile east of the Veterans Expressway at 5395 Ehrlich Road. For more information, check us out online at carrollwoodbaptist.org. This Sunday's Scripture passage is shown below.
Looking forward to celebrating Jesus this Sunday!
Matthew 4:1-11New International Version (NIV)
1 Then Jesus was led by the Spirit into the wilderness to be tempted[a] by the devil. 2 After fasting forty days and forty nights, he was hungry. 3 The tempter came to him and said, “If you are the Son of God, tell these stones to become bread.”
4 Jesus answered, “It is written: ‘Man shall not live on bread alone, but on every word that comes from the mouth of God.’[b]”
5 Then the devil took him to the holy city and had him stand on the highest point of the temple. 6 “If you are the Son of God,” he said, “throw yourself down. For it is written:
“‘He will command his angels concerning you,
and they will lift you up in their hands,
so that you will not strike your foot against a stone.’[c]”
7 Jesus answered him, “It is also written: ‘Do not put the Lord your God to the test.’[d]”
8 Again, the devil took him to a very high mountain and showed him all the kingdoms of the world and their splendor. 9 “All this I will give you,” he said, “if you will bow down and worship me.”
11 Then the devil left him, and angels came and attended him.

Is our view and picture of Jesus complete? Or could there be more to Jesus than the one we thought we knew? Of course, the best way to get an accurate and full portrait of Jesus is from the Gospel accounts in our Bible. Beginning this Sunday, February 7th at Carrollwood Baptist Church, we will begin to look at some pivotal points in Jesus’ life that will help “flesh out” a fuller picture of who Jesus was and still is. We may think we know Jesus but we may be surprised at “The Jesus we thought we knew.” When we dig deeper into the portrait we have of Jesus in the Gospels, we will discover a richer and fuller picture of the living Jesus that saves, satisfies, and is worthy of our worship and service. My hope is that through this study believers will have a greater appreciation for the living Lord they worship and serve and that people searching for answers to life’s questions will see God’s grace and truth at work in the life of Jesus. Invite someone to worship with us during this important season of reflection leading up to Easter Resurrection Sunday.
