Jesus was tempted just like we are yet without sin. Jesus quoted scripture to get Satan away from him. The Word of God is our number one source to turn away from temptation. I pray we are all reading God’s Word regularly, and also making scripture memory an important part of our lives as well. And let’s also remember that…..
Satan knows how to tempt us and when we are most likely to sin.
A time of discouragement and weakness (Jesus fasting)
A time of success (After Jesus was baptized)
A time of boredom or free time. Jesus was alone in the wilderness
There are Two Lies Satan Wants Us to Believe
1. Just once won’t hurt.
2. Now that you have ruined your life, you are beyond God’s use, and might as well enjoy sinning.
The Big Picture:
God’s Word is our number 1 source to fight off temptation.
Psalm 119:11 “I have hidden your word in my heart that I might not sin against you”
