The temptation of Jesus in the wilderness shows us three kinds of bait Satan uses to tempt us – desire, deception and disobedience. We can’t overcome temptation by trying harder. By the power of the Holy Spirit in us, we overcome temptation through heart change and a great love for God. Jesus emerged from the wilderness full of the Holy Spirit’s power, victorious, spiritually strengthened, and battle-ready.
