Matthew 4:1

“Then Jesus was led up
by the Spirit
into the wilderness
to be tempted by the devil.”
(Matthew 4:1)

I have written Verse 1
Of Matthew Chapter 4
In this way on
PURPOSE

And hopefully you have
Looked back to read it
AGAIN

And just ONE more time

WHY?

Because you READ that
Correctly

It WAS the WILL of God
For Jesus to be
Tempted by the devil

But please note
God did NOT tempt Jesus

The devil DID

But it was God’s will
That this should happen

And again – WHY?

Because Jesus could not be
A perfect sacrifice for us
And an appropriate High Priest
If He had not been tempted
As we are
(Hebrews 4:15)
