DEVOTION: Luke 4:1-13 English Standard Version (ESV)
The Temptation of Jesus
4 And Jesus, full of the Holy Spirit, returned from the Jordan and was led by the Spirit in the wilderness 2 for forty days, being tempted by the devil. And he ate nothing during those days. And when they were ended, he was hungry. 3 The devil said to him, "If you are the Son of God, command this stone to become bread." 4 And Jesus answered him, "It is written, 'Man shall not live by bread alone.'" 5 And the devil took him up and showed him all the kingdoms of the world in a moment of time,6 and said to him, "To you I will give all this authority and their glory, for it has been delivered to me, and I give it to whom I will. 7 If you, then, will worship me, it will all be yours." 8 And Jesus answered him, "It is written,

YESTERDAY'S QUIZ: What did God promise to the Israelites if they would follow his decrees and obey his commands? And what did he warn would happen if they didn't? Deut.28:1-14 They would have prominence above other nations, they would be successful in cities and farming, they would have blessings of children, food and livestock, They would have protection and power against their enemies, they would have bountiful harvests of food, they would be set apart as God's holy people, they would be feared by other nations, they would have appropriate and favorable blessings on work including freedom from debt, and they would have leadership among other peoples and nations.
If they did not the Lord would send curses, confusion and frustration in all they undertake to do until they are destroyed and perish on the account of their evil deeds.
TODAY'S QUIZ: Did the Israelites keep their end of the covenant they made with God?
