13 Sep Luke – Day 20
In the face of the overt temptations Jesus faced in this passage, He replied with God’s Word. But he didn’t just quote words as some kind of magical incantation. He spoke truth to the lies each temptation was based on.
There’s much for us to learn from this as we overcome temptation. When you’re tempted, pause to consider exactly WHAT that temptation is appealing to. Once you nail down the root offer and why it seems attractive, watch the Holy Spirit bring to mind a truth from Scripture to nuke it.
