I was thinking about one of the great spiritual battles in the New Testament, which was when “Jesus, full of the Holy Spirit, returned from the Jordan and was led around by the Spirit in the wilderness.” Luke 4:1
If you notice that Jesus wasn’t just brought into the wilderness, but the NASB describes this experience as “led around by the Spirit.”
Have you ever felt like you were “led around“?
If you haven’t, I will admit that I have; more than once.
But I was reminded of this passage in scripture and some of the aspects of the engagement.
Luke 4:5-8 And he led Him up and showed Him all the kingdoms of the world in a moment of time. And the devil said to Him, “I will give You all this domain and its glory; for it has been handed over to me, and I give it to whomever I wish. Therefore if You worship before me, it shall all be Yours.” Jesus answered him, “It is written, ‘YOU SHALL WORSHIP THE LORD YOUR GOD AND SERVE HIM ONLY.’”
