The Bible

02 Jul

Hello again!

This is what God gave me today in His word:

The devil said to him, “If you are the Son of God, command this stone to become bread.” And Jesus answered him, “It is written, ‘Man shall not live by bread alone.'” (Luke 4:3-4)

The Devil tempts Jesus, just as He will tempt any Christian, but unlike several of His followers, Jesus doesn’t run to a doctor for help. Neither does He use will power to “resist”. Neither does He look down a wrist band asking Him, “What would Jesus You do?”. And, He certainly doesn’t try to simply block out the Devil by turning on the TV, radio, etc.. What He did instead, was turn to Scripture. The Bible, the living word of God, is far more powerful than any anti-depression drug, wrist bands, and all the rest.

Jesus, who is the living word of God, is our defense against all of Satan’s attacks. We shouldn’t turn to things which cannot really help us (refer to the mentioned items), instead we should turn to the only one who was the power to help: Jesus Christ.

You are Loved!

    for sure, but you did notice that Satan used scripture too…so really we need to know the character of Jesus so that we know the counterfeit character of Satan…that only comes by reading His love letter – the Bible – and practicing to be like Him

      Thank’s for bringing that up Evan; I agree, we do need to know the character of Christ in order to recognize when it’s the Devil, rather than Jesus, showing us a verse.
