Text: Matthew 4:1-11
Theme: Temptation
Date: January 24 2010

I.Temptation comes to everyone!
1.It is the result of sin in the world, not just sin in our lives
2.Usually when we have freshly expressed our commitment to walk with Christ or intensified our efforts to obey
3.Usually when we are in a weakened state:
1.Rod Loy of First Assembly in N. Little Rock used the acronym HALT as a reminder:
1.Hungry
2.Angry
3.Lonely
4.Tired
2.These are the times that Temptation comes the strongest
II.Temptation thrives in shortcuts:
1.To Material things: the bread. Whether wants or needs
2.To glory and fame: Jumping off the temple
1.Also to test God//see if He really means what He says
3.To power: The Kingdoms
III.Knowledge of Scripture is the front line of defense to temptation
1.Remember, temptation comes to all of us
2.We must know the text: it is the foundation
3.We must also know the context
1.Note verse 6 and Satan's misuse of Scripture
2.We must know what the text is about, and understand the whole of Scripture---else we will come unbalanced and miss the point
IV.Temptation can derail us from what God intends us to do
V.Temptation will fall to the Word of God if we know the Word!
1.As followers of Christ
2.Guided by the Word
3.Empowered by the Spirit
VI.We do not have to fall to temptation: God has given us what we need to Follow Him and not fall to it.
