Matthew 4:7-16

7Jesus said unto him, It is written again, Thou shalt not tempt the Lord thy God.

8Again, the devil taketh him up into an exceeding high mountain, and sheweth him all the kingdoms of the world, and the glory of them;

9And saith unto him, All these things will I give thee, if thou wilt fall down and worship me.

10Then saith Jesus unto him, Get thee hence, Satan: for it is written, Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God, and him only shalt thou serve.

11Then the devil leaveth him, and, behold, angels came and ministered unto him.

12Now when Jesus had heard that John was cast into prison, he departed into Galilee;

13And leaving Nazareth, he came and dwelt in Capernaum, which is upon the sea coast, in the borders of Zabulon and Nephthalim:

14That it might be fulfilled which was spoken by Esaias the prophet, saying,

15The land of Zabulon, and the land of Nephthalim, by the way of the sea, beyond Jordan, Galilee of the Gentiles;

16The people which sat in darkness saw great light; and to them which sat in the region and shadow of death light is sprung up.

One response to “Matthew 4:7-16

  1. Jesus resisted the devil by exposing his deceit with the truth of Scripture. The devil fled from Him. God ministered to Him and strengthened Him with angels. This is a great formula for us to follow in our own lives to gain victory over sin and temptation.

    Jesus brought light to a whole region by spending time there and being with the people. This is a great example of how we are called to be light to the world and how we can change people’s lives by just being with them and showing them the truth that is in us.
