This past week, we studied the “The Temptations of Jesus” in Luke 4. Jesus taught us many lessons in confronting and dealing with temptations. We learned four lessons from him:
- Temptations are inevitable and expected.
- Temptations happen more often when we are tired and weary.
- Temptations occur at our weakest and strongest points.
- Temptations are confronted best by using Scripture as our weapon.
It is not a coincidence that Jesus includes ‘temptations’ in his teaching on prayer in Matthew 6. He knew the power of temptations to derail our connection to Him.
