Scripture: Matthew 4:1-11 "More than Bread"
RISE: MORE THAN BREAD ALONE
Jesus says that people can’t live by bread alone. True. But what else do we need? What is it that makes us whole, embodied people of faith? And what kinds of things do we need to sustain a life of discipleship?
During Lent, we’ll follow along as Jesus meets a series of characters. Each of them needs something. Each of them has something to offer. Through their encounters with Jesus, we learn something about life beyond bread, beyond the body, beyond human limitations. Along the way, we’ll lay down some things, making room for new life. Because in Christ, we are “more.”
