In Matthew 4, how did Jesus overcome Satan’s temptations to sin?
Jesus used the Word of God – rightly interpreted- to defeat Satan. We must do the same. We must KNOW the Word of God and apply it to the situation correctly always remembering Who God is and that we are to serve and honor Him first – rather than to please ourselves.
Quite simply, Jesus was not interested in the self-promoting lies of Satan but in the long-term, God-honoring PLAN of the Father.
We keep this same mindset and studying and living biblical principles enables us to think, speak, and act for the glory of God.
-Mark (grateful that it’s God’s Word that overcomes Satan and the lies of this world and not my own ideas or strength)
