Study Luke

Luke 4:1-13 
Jesus Is Tested in the Wilderness
4 Jesus, full of the Holy Spirit, left the Jordan and was led by the Spirit into the wilderness, 2 where for forty days he was tempted by the devil. He ate nothing during those days, and at the end of them he was hungry.
3 The devil said to him, “If you are the Son of God, tell this stone to become bread.”
4 Jesus answered, “It is written: ‘Man shall not live on bread alone.”
5 The devil led him up to a high place and showed him in an instant all the kingdoms of the world. 6 And he said to him, “I will give you all their authority and splendor; it has been given to me, and I can give it to anyone I want to. 7 If you worship me, it will all be yours.”
8 Jesus answered, “It is written: ‘Worship the Lord your God and serve him only.”
9 The devil led him to Jerusalem and had him stand on the highest point of the temple. “If you are the Son of God,” he said, “throw yourself down from here.10 For it is written:
“‘He will command his angels concerning you
    to guard you carefully;
they will lift you up in their hands,
    so that you will not strike your foot against a stone.”
12 Jesus answered, “It is said: ‘Do not put the Lord your God to the test.”
13 When the devil had finished all this tempting, he left him until an opportune time.

Commentary NIV-LifeAppStudyBible:
Many people sin by attempting to fill legitimate desires outside of God’s will or ahead of His timetable. First ask is the Holy Spirit leading me to do this? Or is it Satan trying to get me off track?

The devil arrogantly hoped to succeed in his rebellion against God by diverting Jesus from his mission and winning his worship.”this world is  mine its God’s” he was saying, and if you hope to do anything worthwhile here you better recognize that fact.”Jesus didn’t argue with Satan about who owns the world but Jesus refused to validate satan’s clammy worshipping him.Jesus knew by redeeming the world he had to give up his life on the cross.not thru making an alliance with a corrupt angel.
Questions:Where are you most susceptible to temptation right now?
                  How are you preparing to withstand it?
  What would it take for you to sell out?
  What is it in life that would cause you to compromise your faith?
