Matthew 4
 
How do you fight temptation?  Last night we studied and discussed Genesis 2.  We thought about Adam and Eve in the garden with no sin in their lives.  But next week we'll be in Chapter 3 and discuss the fall of man.  Truth is, we are fallen people in a fallen world with Satan prowling about trying to destroy us.
 
Matthew 4:1-11 shows us how to defeat Satan's attempts at tempting us.  Read this passage and take notes.  Satan attacks Jesus when He is physically most vulnerable.  He attacks three times from three different approaches - each time striking where he thinks Christ is most weak.  But each time Jesus strikes back in victory.  How?  You saw it.  He quoted scripture.
 
James 4:7 tells us, "Submit therefore to God.  Resist the devil and he will flee from you."  Jesus had submitted to the Father.  He knew His will.  He knew His word.  He knew when He was physically weak He was spiritually strong and He sent Satan packing.  Let's learn from that and study scripture so we can overcome Satan.
 
As we continue to see Jesus' life we can learn so much.  Let's stay hungry and keep following.
