For the third test, the devil took Him [Jesus] to the peak of a huge mountain. He gestured expansively, pointing out all the earths kingdoms, how glorious they all were. Then he said, theyre Yours lock, stock and barrel. Just go down on Your knees and worship me, and theyre Yours. Jesus refusal was curt: Beat it, Satan! He backed His rebuke with a third quotation from Deuteronomy: Worship the Lord your God, and only Him. Serve Him with absolute single-heartedness. The test was over. The devil left. (The Message)
Read Matthew Chapter 4
Satan made quite an offer everything Jesus could want but when you really think about, those things were never Satans to give.
He uses that same lie on us today. Remember that there is nothing of any value that Satan can offer, regardless of its pretty packaging, because he is only the King of Lies. You serve the King of Light!
Dear Father of Light
Shine on me so that I can see Your truth
and shine through me that I might light the way for others.
