On Sundays we'll walk through events in the life of Jesus Christ found in the four Gospels.
Read Matthew 4:8-11
Again, the devil took him to a very high mountain and showed him all the kingdoms of the world and their splendor. "All this I will give you," he said, "if you will bow down and worship me."
Jesus said to him, "Away from me, Satan! For it is written: 'Worship the Lord your God, and serve him only.'"
Then the devil left him, and angels came and attended him.
The final thing the evil one uses to tempt Jesus is the chance to get whatever he wants if only he worships someone or something other than the one true God. Our desires to get what we want, to live life our own way, are strong. Is there anything or anyone else besides God that you're tempted to give your allegiance to? How far down that path of false worship have you gone?
Especially in our culture over many others, we have so much to choose from and so many choices to make. Ask God to make you a wise chooser, a resolute decider, and to give you a glimpse of his vision, which must make many of our "choices" into no-brainers.
