Here’s your daily dose of what matters most! We want to support you in your Come, Follow Me study. That’s why our daily dose each week is a recap of the major themes of each lesson. This week, learn from the temptations Jesus faced and how we can rely on Him, as the promised Messiah, through our trials.
Then saith Jesus unto him, Get thee hence, Satan: for it is written, Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God, and him only shalt thou serve.—Matthew 4:10
As with Jesus, so with us, relief comes and miracles are enjoyed after the trial and temptation of our faith. The question for us now is—will we succeed? Will we resist? Will we wear the victor’s crown? Satan may have lost Jesus, but he does not believe he has lost us. He continues to tempt, taunt, and plead for our loyalty. We should take strength for this battle from the fact that Christ was victorious not as a God but as a man.—Howard W. Hunter
