III. Temptation of Jesus
Three Teachings on Temptation
God does not permit any evil or problem unless it can serve some greater good.
In the case of temptation, He permits it because it summons us to love Him while
giving us the freedom to reject or accept that call. God seeks sons and
daughters who can love Him freely. ...
Jesus Was Tempted by Satan - A Biblical Refection
Temptation often comes not at our strongest, but at our weakest moments.
That is, when we are at the limits of our patience or kindness, when we are
under pressure. So be on guard. Our Lord's temptation began "after" 40 days
of fasting. ...
Temptations of Christ
Jesus, after 40 days and nights of fasting, was tempted by the devil to trust in
himself rather than in his father in heaven. Instead of falling, like the children of
Israel had, Jesus would be triumphant, pre-enacting what he would do for the
world on the cross: conquer sin and defeat the enemy. ...
IV. Raising of Lazarus
Across the Jordan: Waiting for Lazarus to Die
Strange as it may sound, Jesus stayed away from Bethany so that after Lazarus
died, he could raise him from the dead, bringing great glory to God, and
confirming his own words when he said,
"I am the Resurrection and the Life" - John 11:25. ...
At Lazarus' Tomb
As we draw near to the end of Lent, today's Gospel clearly has Jesus' passion
and death in view. ...
When It Is Humanly Impossible
The Lord's ways of human impossibility are essential for a person to understand
who is walking in the way of the cross. The Lord crucifies the flesh and all
human reasoning until there is only one thing that prevails, and that is the
faith that He gives. This is the faith that the Lord is exercising here. ...
Lazarus: Miracle and Motive
They killed Jesus because he offered life. They
killed him because they understood what his message was, and now they realized
that he had real power behind him as well. Until Lazarus, he was just another
reformer. He was just a vagabond with some followers stirring up trouble here
and there. After Lazarus they knew his power. They knew they were in trouble.
V. Featured: Satan - Devil
Satan - The Same Old Trick
Satan is not an original thinker, and he has no new ideas. If you study the
Bible and human history, you'll see that he has only one trick up his
sleeve, and he relies on it over and over again. ...
Don't Let Satan Fool You
These temptations will always be present in life, but Jesus offers us a
powerful reassurance in Matthew 6 that equips us to defend ourselves. ...
The Devil's Mail
Always guard your heart. Never allow the words of those who attempt to wound
you to find a resting place in your life. ...
Standing Against the Devil
Many Christians wrongly assume that Satan is much more powerful than he
really is. But if you understand James's promise you will know you have
abundant spiritual resources to handle Satan's empty threats. ...
