Sunday we discussed the third and final temptation of Jesus in Matthew 4:8-11 emphasizing how easy it is for us to build our kingdoms through the means of idolatry. I believe that if you can understand idolatry, you can overcome temptation. When we crucify our idols, we can be freed from sin. But first, we need the cross.
8 Again, the devil *took Him to a very high mountain and *showed Him all the kingdoms of the world and their glory; 9 and he said to Him, “ All these things I will give You, if You fall down and worship me.” 10 Then Jesus *said to him, “Go, Satan! For it is written, ‘ You shall worship the Lord your God, and serve Him only.’” 11 Then the devil *left Him; and behold, angels came and began to minister to Him.
