Temptations are those tests that we would never want to have in our daily life, but unfortunately they are the daily bread of every Christian and we must have the necessary tools to overcome them. The temptations not only reach you and me, but also came to Jesus’ life at certain times. And this is the good news, that our Master was tempted and could overcome, and in the same way it is very certain that God will give us victory in all our temptations.
Let’s read Matthew 4:
1 Then was Jesus led up of the Spirit into the wilderness to be tempted of the devil.
2 And when he had fasted forty days and forty nights, he was afterward an hungred.
3 And when the tempter came to him, he said, If thou be the Son of God, command that these stones be made bread.
4 But he answered and said, It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God.
5 Then the devil taketh him up into the holy city, and setteth him on a pinnacle of the temple,
One of the things that shows that we are true Christians is temptation and we can not avoid them, but we can overcome them, the greatest example of this was shown to us by Jesus Christ. He was led into the desert by the Spirit’s own will to be tempted. This does not mean that God tempts us, but it does mean that God allows temptation in our lives.
