Empowered and Authorized to Ministry
- “This is my Son” called/authorized Jesus to ministry
- the most critical temptations test the meaning, value and
purpose of our existence
- nature of temptation: prove who you are (reversed the
roles of being and doing)
Our doing flows out of our being.
-the presence of the Spirit empowered Jesus for ministry
Hope
Love
