"THE DEVIL IN THE DESERT" by JTK.CA

"THE DEVIL IN THE DESERT"
by JTK.CA
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Our temptations do not define us. Rather, we are defined by how we deal with those temptations. Being tempted is not a sin. Jesus was tempted by the Devil in the desert without deserting God's law. The Devil even used Scripture (out of context) as a means of his tempting. Like the music group's name, Twisted Sister, Satan used Twisted Scripture. And he'll do it with you too. Heck, or wait...Hell, he does it with me all the time. Jesus' response was to fight back with pure Scripture.

As an illustration, someone may be born with kleptomania. Stealing may be a temptation he battles with for his whole life. However, he does not have to define himself by his temptation. Instead, he can define himself by overcoming the urge, and doing something constructive rather than destructive to other people's lives. The measure of our character is not how we are tempted; rather, it is how we deal with those temptations.

Jesus had his lonely, hungry days in the desert; and so do we. The Devil is patient; he'll wait awhile for the loneliness and the hungriness to set in before he starts his gentle and Scriptural attack. But remember, keep an eye out for his Twisted Scripture, words out of context, sound bites to tickle itching ears. Like Jesus, we fight back with pure Scripture, with the Word of God straight from the Word of God, because Jesus "is" the Word. And he became flesh. And he conquered the Scripture Twister, and so can we by carrying the words of God (ALL of them) and the WORD of God, Jesus Christ, God's Son, in our hearts.
