"And Jesus, full of the Holy Spirit,
returned from the Jordan
and was led by the Spirit in the wilderness for forty days,
being tempted by the devil..."
~ Luke 4:1-2
as we unpack the temptations of Jesus,
we'll uncover a deeper truth...
Temptation loses its power
the moment we realize what's at stake.
Temptation lost its power over Jesus
as he was full of the Holy Spirit,
firm on the Word of God,
and focused on his mission.
We can prepare ourselves before temptation comes in the same way.
We'll look to the example of Jesus to find out how.
