The Word of God

RE Verse reading–Mark 1:19-20, 3:13-17, 10:35-45 (day four)
Jesus was obedient.  Verse 1:10 says, following His obedience, immediately the Spirit of God descended on Him.  It was a spiritual landmark in His life.  Then…there is that word again…’immediately’…immediately Jesus is tested against His commitment to God.  Have you ever experienced that?  You make a significant, life-changing commitment to God…promising to be obedient in a particular area of your life…and immediately you are tested in that commitment.  Satan comes and seeks to steal away your faith commitment.  Jesus gives us the proper way to deal with the temptation…use the Word of God.  Hebrews 4:12 says “the word of God is living and active and sharper than any two-edged sword…” Satan’s tactics and temptations are the same for you and me, just as they were for Jesus.  Satan is the great deceiver and he knows exactly where your point of weakness lies.  The only offense against his schemes is the Word of God.  Follow the lead of the Savior!
