Jesus was tempted. In Matthew, it says that he faced 3 big temptations. We can certainly understand temptations – it seems not a day goes by when we’re not tempted to do something we know is wrong.
When facing temptations, that is one of the few times that I roll my eyes at someone who asks, What Would Jesus Do, and I roll my eyes because I’m not Jesus. I don’t have the ability to fight temptations with the ease it seems Jesus did.
But in all 3 cases of the temptations recorded in Matthew, Jesus faced them by leaning on scripture. That’s something I can do! Knowing the Bible and leaning on God’s word not only helps me stand up against temptations, it better equips me for life!
Your word is a lamp for my feet,
a light on my path.
