Avoid Temptation – Matthew 4: 1-11
Key Verse: 10 Jesus said to him, “Away from me, Satan! For it is written: ‘Worship the Lord your God, and serve him only.' 11 Then the devil left him, and angels came and attended him.
Lent is a time when most of us give something up, but do we think about the spiritual side of it? Do we think about Jesus and His time in the wilderness, how He withstood Satan’s temptations? Jesus quoted scripture when He was tempted and was able to drive Satan’s advances away. 10 Jesus said to him, “Away from me, Satan! For it is written: ‘Worship the Lord your God, and serve him only.’” This is what we should do too; our Bibles are full of ways to help us avoid getting into temptation. During this Lenten Season let us not just givie something up, we should pick up our Bibles to help us avoid temptation.
Have a blessed week
