Tempted in the Wilderness



Luke 3:21-22 (HCSB) 

21  When all the people were baptized, Jesus also was baptized. As He was praying, heaven opened, 

22  and the Holy Spirit descended on Him in a physical appearance like a dove. And a voice came from heaven: You are My beloved Son.I take delight in You!


Luke 4:1-13 (HCSB) 

 Then Jesus returned from the Jordan, full of the Holy Spirit, and was led by the Spirit in the wilderness 

 for 40 days to be tempted by the Devil. He ate nothing during those days, and when they were over, He was hungry. 

 The Devil said to Him, “If You are the Son of God, tell this stone to become bread.” 

 But Jesus answered him, “It is written: Man must not live on bread alone.”

 So he took Him up and showed Him all the kingdoms of the world in a moment of time. 

 The Devil said to Him, “I will give You their splendor and all this authority, because it has been given over to me, and I can give it to anyone I want. 

 If You, then, will worship me, all will be Yours.” 

 And Jesus answered him, “It is written:Worship the Lord your God,and serveHim only.”

 So he took Him to Jerusalem, had Him stand on the pinnacle of the temple, and said to Him, “If You are the Son of God, throw Yourself down from here. 

10  For it is written: He will give His angels orders concerning you,to protect you,

11  and they will support you with their hands,so that you will not strikeyour foot against a stone.”

12  And Jesus answered him, “It is said: Do not test the Lord your God.”

13  After the Devil had finished every temptation, he departed from Him for a time. 


Table Talk

Table Talk is designed for you and your family to discuss Sunday's message. Imagine sitting at the table together as a family, discussing the lesson learned in church and how it applies to your life.


  1. Why is it so hard to trust God when we feel that we are stuck in life?
  2. What are you being tempted with right now?
  3. What is God teaching you in your "wilderness experience?"
