This is Part 3 of a 3-part series in which I describe the 3 biggest temptations used by the devil to shake our faith. If you haven’t read Part 1 and 2, you can begin reading them at The Three Biggest Temptations, Part 1.
Finishing up our series, we are drawing wisdom from Matthew 4:1-11 from Jesus’ own wilderness experience.
Looking Back For Just A Minute
Falling for the first temptation is to believe we’re only physical beings; that there isn’t a spiritual side to our lives. The devil tries to convince us to forget God and do things on our own. If that doesn’t work, then the 2nd temptation tries to get us to doubt God and His Word. Will God really take care of us? Can His Word be trusted? When we still don’t fall, the devil moves to his final temptation.
