The Temptation of Jesus

Today’s Daily Devotion

By Khai Samante

This passage teaches us that temptation is an inevitable part of our human experience. The devil aimed to exploit Jesus’ physical hunger, appealing to His divine identity with a challenge that questioned His authority. Yet, Jesus responded with unwavering faith, relying on the Word of God to overcome the temptation.

We, too, will encounter moments when our faith, character, and commitment to God are tested. The enemy often targets our vulnerabilities, seeking to divert us from God’s path and lead us into sin. Like Jesus, we can conquer temptation by anchoring ourselves in God’s Word. Through the Scriptures, we gain the strength to resist the snares of the enemy. Jesus’ response reminds us that true sustenance comes not from immediate gratification but from obedience to God’s will. He trusted in God’s provision, even in the midst of hunger and adversity.

In our own lives, may we rely on God’s promises, seek His strength, and remember that we are not alone in our struggles. Jesus conquered temptation for us, setting an example of victory through faith in God’s truth.

How can you fortify your faith and resist temptation by immersing yourself in God’s Word, as Jesus did?

Then the devil said to him, “If you are the Son of God, tell this stone to become a loaf of bread.”
Luke 4:3

In the face of temptation, remember that God’s Word is our greatest weapon.
