Matthew 4:1-10. Jesus resist temptation!
Verse one: Jesus is led by the Spirit. He obeys the Spirits leading on a mission, the mission of being tested by the devil. Verses two and three: Jesus had fasted for forty days and was tired and hungry and that is when the tempter or Satan came and he still does that today, he strikes us at our weakest moments, we must stay alert and be aware of that sly fox and roaring lion. He tempted Jesus to turn stone into bread. Note in verse four Jesus uses the word of God to fight the tempting of the devil. Verses five and six the devil tempts Jesus again and again Jesus uses the Scriptures to fight Satan and the third time, Jesus uses the word of God for victory over temptation and as Jesus did so must we use the power of God’s word for victory over our enemy the devil.
