2023 Day 277 – Matthew 3; Mark 1; Luke 3

The devil does not leave anyone out with his works of temptation.  One of his tactics is to catch his victims at their weakest point.  The tempting of our Savior that we read about in Luke chapter 4 happened after Jesus had not eaten for forty days.  I can only imagine how weak and hungry a person would be after not eating for that long.  What was the first thing the devil tried to get Jesus to do?  He challenged him to turn a stone into bread.  Jesus did not fall for his tricks and after a few failures, the devil gave up temporarily.  “And when the devil had completed every temptation, he departed from him for a season.” (Luke 4:13)  It is comforting to know that whatever the devil may throw at us, we have a way out if we are following our Lord.  “There hath no temptation taken you but such as man can bear: but God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able; but will with the temptation make also the way of escape, that ye may be able to endure it.” (1 Corinthians 10:13)
