Greetings in Christ,
Welcome to worship. We continue our study of the Gospel of
Luke. Our focus today is Jesus’ 40 days of fasting and tempting in
the wilderness, immediately following his baptism by John (Luke 4:
1-14). While today’s examines the temptations of Jesus, I have
chosen to share a few observations about temptations in general.
First, it is not a sin to be tempted. Jesus was tempted and yet he did
not sin (Hebrews 4:15).
Secondly, there is no such thing as a temptation that is too strong to
resists. That is just an excuse we make for ourselves. The truth is
that God has promised that no one will ever be tempted beyond
their ability to withstand (1 Corinthians 10:13). We are not left to
our own devises in times of temptations. The Holy Spirit empowers
us, if we are willing to avail ourselves to God rather than our own
desires (Philippians 2:13).
It is not difficult to be self-deceived regarding our spiritual state and
relationship with God in Christ. What we do in times of temptation
reveals to us something about our own hearts (James 1:12-16).
The bible instructs us about abundant life. It is a resource to teach,
rebuke, encourage, challenge and strengthen us if we would avail
ourselves to it (2 Timothy 3:16-17, Proverbs 3:5-6).
Temptations and tests are not the same. They have different sources
and are pointed at different aims. Studying Jesus’ date with the
Devil in the wilderness offers some insight into how we can manage
our own dates with the devil in our wilderness. May God add
God’s blessing to our time of worship together.
Let us worship God,
