Jesus Resisted Temptation Using God’s Word —
Satan opposed God’s right to rule in his life and was always looking for others he could coax into doing the same. What a prize it would be if he could convince God’s own Son to join his way of thinking!
Satan found his opportunity when Jesus was at his weakest — after 40 days of fasting in the desert with no food and little water.
Watch Jose Cruz’ anime video that accurately depicts the details of this difficult event from Matthew 4:1-10.
Dearest Father, Your Son is amazing! Thank you that he remained loyal to your teachings even though he was extremely weak. Thank you that he did not listen to Satan’s deceiving ideas even though it was very hard not to give in. Please help me to learn your Word and faithfully obey you like Jesus. Amen.
