Picking up where we left off yesterday … Jesus then meets up with John & gets Himself baptized. The Father loves the whole scene and announces how pleased He is with His Son. Then Jesus heads into the desert for 40 days. And guess-who shows up. That old fallen angel – the one known as the adversary – evidently has no idea Who he is trying to mess with out there. So he pulls a few tricks out of his infamous bag of lies.
Jesus doesn’t fall for any of them.
Instead, He quotes Scripture.
And the enemy takes off.
He can’t stand against the Truth.
Never has. Never will. Remember that.
Jesus said to him, “Away from me, Satan!
For it is written: “Worship the Lord your God, and serve him only.
Then the devil left him, and angels came and attended him.
