PostSubject: And The Devil Said...   Tue Sep 23, 2014 8:45 am

Jesus, full of the Holy Spirit, returned from the Jordan and was led by the Spirit in the desert, where for forty days he was tempted by the devil. LUKE 4:1-2

Jesus isn't the only one who uses object lessons. The devil does, too... and sometimes quite effectively. He even tried them on Jesus. When Jesus was fasting in the desert, Satan used three object lessons to tempt Him. What they were and how Jesus defeated them are now lessons for us.

The first was a stone. Jesus could have made the stone into bread as Satan suggested, but He chose the Father's will over physical needs. Next Satan showed Him the kingdoms of the world. He offered Jesus control over this present world if Jesus would do things Satan's way. Jesus chose the Father's will instead. Finally, Satan tempted Jesus to defy the law of gravity and prove He was the Messiah. Jesus chose the Father's plan to subject everything, even Satan, under His feet.

Satan attacks us also, using our physical needs, our desire for control, and our pride to keep us away from God's will. Jesus defeated Satan by using the Word of God, and we can, too. Scripture cuts through the devil's lies, leading us right to Jesus.

INSIGHT: What an awesome Savior we have...He even uses the deceitful words of Satan Himself as tools to glorify the Father and lead us to His will.

Dear God, Help me to understand that if I ignore Your Word...the Holy Bible, I will never be able to stand up to the lies, attacks and deceitful tricks of the devil, especially as this world continues it's rapid moral decay. Give me an intense desire to get into a good Bible believing church so when I read and study your Holy Word I'll have spiritual help to understand. I know I can start right now by reading this complete story in Luke 4:1-13. In Jesus Name, Amen

And this is the testimony: God has given us eternal life, and this life is in His Son. He who has the Son has life, he who does not have the Son of God does not have life.
