Jesus Tested: Lust of the Flesh

Matthew 4:1-4


1 Then Jesus was led up by the Spirit into the wilderness to be tempted by the devil. And after fasting forty days and forty nights, he was hungry. And the tempter came and said to him, “If you are the Son of God, command these stones to become loaves of bread.” But he answered, “It is written, “‘Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that comes from the mouth of God.’”


Biblical Points

1.    The best place to be is where the Holy Spirit has led you.

2.    The best the devil can do is to attack at your pressure points.

3.    The best defense to temptation is God’s word.



1.    Be comforted: God understands your weaknesses.

2.    Be vigilant: The devil is busy.

3.    Be reading: God’s Word is yours.
