Jesus said, “In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.” We have a Savior who knows our struggles and knows our pain, and he will give us the strength to persevere and trust his will for us.

Lord’s Prayer: “Lead Us Not Into Temptation—What Can I Do?

Temptation will always bombard us. But that doesn’t mean we need to fall for it. This week, Pastor Dan walks us through the Lord’s Prayer and helps us see how we can continue to grow in our relationship with God. However, Pastor Dan doesn’t talk about “forgive us our sins as we forgive those who sin against us.” Forgiveness is a topic all on its own, and he will devote a whole series to forgiveness later this year. Watch for it!
