Mark 1:12-13; Genesis 3:15; Hebrews 4:14-16; Matthew 4:2-8; Deuteronomy 8:3; Deuteronomy 6:16; Deuteronomy 6:13


After Jesus' baptism, he went into the wilderness where he was tempted by Satan for 40 days. Satan offered him food, tried to force him into testing God, and promised him all the kingdoms of the world if only Jesus would worship him. Jesus denied Satan every time, creating a model for his disciples to follow. There will always be things that tempt us away from God, and Satan makes them sound legitimate, but God's provision and timing are always best. The decision we face is whether to trust in God and follow Him or be pulled away from doing so.
