October 3, 2004

Luke 4: 1-13

     Temptation is a sign that Satan hates you, not a sign of weakness or worldliness.

You will never be able to avoid it completely

 (James 1:13 NIV)  When tempted, no one should say, "God is tempting me." For God cannot be tempted by evil, nor does he tempt anyone; 

 What intimidates Satan? 

(1 Peter 5:8 NIV)  Be self-controlled and alert. Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour. 

Have you ever been frightened?

When you’re tempted Not if. It is NOT a sin to be tempted. (Luke 4:2 NIV) where for forty days he (Christ) was tempted by the devil. He ate nothing during those days, and at the end of them he was hungry.
