A Reading from Luke's Gospel

THEN JESUS, FULL of the Holy Spirit, left the Jordan River, being urged by the Spirit out into the barren wastelands of Judea, where Satan tempted him for forty days. He ate nothing all that time, and was very hungry.

Satan said, "If you are God's Son, tell this stone to become a loaf of bread."

But Jesus replied,

"It is written in the Scriptures, 'Other things in life are much more important than bread!' "


Then Satan took him up and revealed to him all the kingdoms of the world in a moment of time; and the devil told him, "I will give you all these splendid kingdoms and their glory - for they are mine to give to anyone I wish - if you will only get down on your knees and worship me."

Jesus replied,

"We must worship God, and him alone. So it is written in the Scriptures."


Then Satan took him to Jerusalem to a high roof of the Temple and said, "If you are the Son of God, jump off! For the Scriptures say that God will send his angels to guard you and to keep you from crashing to the pavement below!"

Jesus replied,

"The Scriptures also say, 'Do not put the Lord your God to a foolish test' "


When the devil had ended all the temptations, he left Jesus for a while and went away.

That concludes the excerpt from the Gospel.

Question for the reader: if the devil used the Bible (Scriptures) against the Son of God, do you think he might not also use them against you?

Use the same method as Jesus used to counteract this. Quote the Scriptures.

And of course don't forget Victory over the devil was won by Jesus.

A direct quote from Matthew 11: "A student is not greater than his teacher. A servant is not above his master. The student shares his teacher's fate. The servant shares his master's! And since I, the Matser of the Household, have been called "satan", how much more will you!"

and also from the Gospels...

"...though you have to endure trials and tribulations, cheer up - for I have defeated them!!"

PRAISE GOD!
