Message of the Day: Obedience is More Important than Physical Needs!
But He answered and said, “It is written, ‘Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceeds from the mouth of God.’ ”(Matthew 4:4, NKJV)
Immediately after being appointed to his messianic ministry, Jesus was tempted by Satan to use his messianic powers in the wrong way. Satan’s aim was to make Jesus act according to his own will instead of in obedience to his Father.
After weeks without food, Jesus was obviously very hungry. Satan therefore used Jesus’ natural desire for food to suggest that he should use his supernatural powers to create food and eat it. Jesus knew that food was necessary for a person’s physical needs, but he also knew that obedience to God was more important. God alone would decide when and how his fast would end.
Let us follow Jesus’ example.
