Then Jesus told him, “Go away, Satan! For it is written: Worship the Lord your God, and serve only him.” Matthew 4:10
These words are the concluding interactions between Jesus and the devil in the wilderness. Jesus enters into the same temptations that we ourselves face and joins with us as our companion and empathetic Saviour. Jesus also provides an example of when our own knowledge of Scripture will help us to overcome the temptations that we face. Knowing what the Bible says in our temptations is only part of the equation when battling sin. That knowledge of Scripture must transform our understanding and actions so that we live in the same overcoming, Spirit-led life that has been secured by our Saviour.
