Triumph Over Temptation

From Luke 4:1-13. Satan tempts Jesus.

Jesus was led by the Holy Spirit in the wilderness Exhausted from the biting desert heat, He hungered and thirsted

Yet, He held very firmly to His fast Satan came calling and tried to tempt Jesus

"If you are the Son of God, turn these stones into bread," Satan said "It is written: Man does not live by bread alone," Jesus replied back

Determined, the devil led Jesus to a high place He was shown the most beautiful kingdoms of the world, beautiful and opulent enough to tempt anybody

"All of these kingdoms will be yours if you worship me!" "It is written: Worship the Lord your God and serve Him only," said Jesus

But Satan isn't through, is three times the charm? He led Jesus to the top of the temple in Jerusalem

"Cast yourself off, the angels will guard you from falling onto the ground below," the devil said "Do not put the Lord your God to the test," responded Jesus

Satan could tempt Jesus no longer, and gave up The devil left Him alone...for the moment.
