In Philippians 3:10, the Apostle Paul expresses his heartfelt desire, “that I may know Him (Christ).” Paul had known Christ for many years as his Savior and Lord, so what did he mean? Paul desired to know Jesus Christ more deeply through experiencing a close, personal relationship with Him on a daily basis. In this series of Bible messages, we explore how we, as believers in Christ, can experience this same thing in our own lives.

These Bible messages entitled “Knowing Christ” were preached by Pastor Gregg Bing in 2021 during the morning worship services at Grace Bible Church in Fort Worth, TX.

How Christ Handled Temptation

Knowing Christ

Before Jesus began His public ministry, He was led by the Holy Spirit into the wilderness to be tempted by the devil. This was done to demonstrate His perfect sinlessness so He could die on the cross as a sacrifice for our sins. Jesus can sympathize with our weaknesses because He was tempted and tried in all points just like we are, yet He was without sin. This morning, we consider how Satan tempted Jesus and how He handled the temptation so that we can grow to learn more about the mind and heart of our Savior and better understand how we can resist the temptations of the devil.
