He Passes the Test

Read the Bible in a year chronologically by reading Luke 4:1-32 today.
Jesus had a thorn in His side, and it was the greatest thorn one could ever have, Satan. Would Jesus be true to God in the most difficult of circumstances, fasting for forty days and all the while being tempted by the devil? After fasting forty days, Jesus was hungry (How strong was that hunger?), and the devil challenged Him, whether He was the Son of God, saying that if He was, He should be able to turn stones into bread. Jesus replied, saying, “It is written, ‘Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word of God'” (Luke 4:4).
Praise God! Jesus passed the test! Two more tests followed. He passed both of them, quoting Scripture each time. Jesus passed the tests the same way we can, living by the Scriptures.
Watch how you handle the issues of life and see if Scripture is your guide. If so, you pass the test. If not, God gives you another chance. Keep working at it.
