Immediately after Jesus was baptized, the Holy Spirit descended on Him, and the Father said “You’re my beloved Son, and you please me”, he was led – or sent – into the desert to be tempted.
Jesus was tempted with food, power, and to go against what God instructed him to do. He came through just fine. We can learn three lessons from this:
- There’s nothing wrong with being tempted.
- We don’t have to let temptation win.
- When we’re tempted, rejoice.
