“And the devil took him up and showed him all the kingdoms of the world in a moment of time, and said to him, “To you, I will give all this authority and their glory, for it has been delivered to me, and I give it to whom I will. If you, then, will worship me, it will all be yours.” And Jesus answered him, “It is written,
“‘You shall worship the Lord your God,
and Him only shall you serve.’”
While using the HEAR method (see below) consider the following questions:
- When have you been tempted to cut corners to get what you want? Does the end justify the means? (Why or why not?)
- What did Jesus use to battle Satan and how might that same tool help us?
Highlight – what words or phrases jump out at you
Explain – what does the passage mean?
Apply – how does the passage intersect with your life today?
Respond – how is God leading you to respond?
