Walking With Jesus: Temptation

Read: Matthew 4:1-11

The temptation of Jesus

  • Timing - in the wilderness, alone, after a fast.
  • Temptations - attacked his identity, appealed to his hunger, pride, natural desires.
  • Triumph - used the Word of God.

The reality of spiritual conflict: Ephesians 6:11-18

The enemies we face: Distraction, Discord, and Discouragement

How can we win?

  • Keep our integrity.
  • Use God's Word.
  • Don't confuse natural occurrences with spiritual attacks.
  • Stand your ground.
