  1. 1. First Sunday in Lent: The Lord Jesus Christ Is Our Champion against Satan Genesis 3:1-21; Romans 5:12-19; Matthew 4:1-11; Psalm 32:1-7
  2. 2. FIRST SUNDAY IN LENT Genesis 3:1–21 Romans 5:12–19 Matthew 4:1–11 The Lord Jesus Christ Is Our Champion against Satan Following His Baptism, Jesus is “led up by the Spirit into the wilderness to be tempted by the devil” (Matt. 4:1). As He takes upon Himself the curse of our sin and sets Himself against our enemy, He trusts His Father‘s voice and waits upon His Father‘s hand for all things. The devil questions His sonship, but the beloved and well-pleasing Son remains faithful and lives “by every Word that comes from the mouth of God” (Matt. 4:4). Jesus patiently suffers hunger in His mortal flesh and returns to the dust whence man was taken, and by His pain He brings forth food for all the children of men (Gen. 3:18–19). By the sweat of His brow we eat the fruit of His Cross, even as our nakedness is covered by His righteousness. Although all people live in bondage to death through the trespass of the first man, Adam, all the more “have the grace of God and the free gift by the grace of that one Man Jesus Christ abounded for many” (Rom. 5:15). His righteous obedience “leads to justification and life for all men” (Rom. 5:18).
  3. 3. •How does Satan corner you? •How does the Spirit do battle within you, for you?
  4. 4. 1 A mighty fortress is our God, A trusty shield and weapon; He helps us free from ev'ry need That hath us now o'ertaken. The old evil foe Now means deadly woe; Deep guile and great might Are his dread arms in fight; On earth is not his equal. 3 Though devils all the world should fill, All eager to devour us. We tremble not, we fear no ill, They shall not overpow'r us. This world's prince may still Scowl fierce as he will, He can harm us none, He's judged; the deed is done; One little word can fell him. 2 With might of ours can naught be done, Soon were our loss effected; But for us fights the Valiant One, Whom God Himself elected. Ask ye, Who is this? Jesus Christ it is. Of Sabaoth Lord, And there's none other God; He holds the field forever. 4 The Word they still shall let remain Nor any thanks have for it; He's by our side upon the plain With His good gifts and Spirit. And take they our life, Goods, fame, child, and wife, Let these all be gone, Our vict'ry has been won; The Kingdom ours remaineth.

Genesis 3:1-21 You will crawl on your belly The Fall and you will eat dust 3 Now the serpent was more crafty than any of the wild all the days of your life. 15 And I will put enmity animals the LORD God had made. He said to the woman, ―Did God really say, ‗You must not eat from any tree in the between you and the woman, garden‘?‖ and between your offspring[a] and hers; 2 The woman said to the serpent, ―We may eat fruit from the he will crush[b] your head, trees in the garden, 3 but God did say, ‗You must not eat fruit and you will strike his heel.‖ from the tree that is in the middle of the garden, and you must 16 To the woman he said, not touch it, or you will die.‘‖ ―I will make your pains in childbearing very severe; 4 ―You will not certainly die,‖ the serpent said to the with painful labor you will give birth to children. woman. 5 ―For God knows that when you eat from it your Your desire will be for your husband, eyes will be opened, and you will be like God, knowing good and he will rule over you.‖ 17 To Adam he said, ―Because you listened to your wife and and evil.‖ 6 When the woman saw that the fruit of the tree was good for ate fruit from the tree about which I commanded you, ‗You food and pleasing to the eye, and also desirable for gaining must not eat from it,‘ wisdom, she took some and ate it. She also gave some to her ―Cursed is the ground because of you; husband, who was with her, and he ate it. 7 Then the eyes of through painful toil you will eat food from it both of them were opened, and they realized they were all the days of your life. naked; so they sewed fig leaves together and made coverings 18 It will produce thorns and thistles for you, for themselves. and you will eat the plants of the field. 8 Then the man and his wife heard the sound of the LORD God 19 By the sweat of your brow as he was walking in the garden in the cool of the day, and you will eat your food they hid from the LORD God among the trees of the until you return to the ground, garden. 9 But the LORD God called to the man, ―Where are since from it you were taken; you?‖ for dust you are 10 He answered, ―I heard you in the garden, and I was and to dust you will return.‖ 20 Adam[c] named his wife Eve,[d] because she would become afraid because I was naked; so I hid.‖ 11 And he said, ―Who told you that you were naked? Have the mother of all the living. 21 The LORD God made garments of skin for Adam and his you eaten from the tree that I commanded you not to eat from?‖ wife and clothed them. 12 The man said, ―The woman you put here with me—she gave me some fruit from the tree, and I ate it.‖ 13 Then the LORD God said to the woman, ―What is this you have done?‖ The woman said, ―The serpent deceived me, and I ate.‖ 14 So the LORD God said to the serpent, ―Because you have done this, ―Cursed are you above all livestock and all wild animals!
  9. 9. Romans 5:12-19 many! 16 Nor can the gift of God be Death Through Adam, Life compared with the result of one Through Christ man‘s sin: The judgment followed 12 Therefore, just as sin entered the one sin and brought condemnation, world through one man, and death but the gift followed many through sin, and in this way death trespasses and brought came to all people, because all justification. 17 For if, by the sinned— trespass of the one man, 13 To be sure, sin was in the world death reigned through that one man, before the law was given, but sin is how much more will those who not charged against anyone‘s receive God‘s abundant provision of account where there is no grace and of the gift of law. 14 Nevertheless, death reigned righteousness reign in life through from the time of Adam to the time the one man, Jesus Christ! of Moses, even over those who did 18 Consequently, just as one trespass not sin by breaking a command, as resulted in condemnation for all did Adam, who is a pattern of the people, so also one righteous act one to come. resulted in justification and life for 15 But the gift is not like the all people. 19 For just as through the trespass. For if the many died by the disobedience of the one man the trespass of the one man, how much many were made sinners, so also more did God‘s grace and the gift through the obedience of the one that came by the grace of the one man the many will be made man, Jesus Christ, overflow to the righteous.
  10. 10. Matthew 4:1-11 Jesus Is Tested in the Wilderness 4 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.‖ 10 Jesus said to him, ―Away from me, Satan! For it is written: ‗Worship the Lord your God, and serve him only.‘[e]‖ 11 Then the devil left him, and angels came and attended him.
