“And He was in the wilderness forty days being tempted by Satan” (Mark 1:13).
To face temptation places you in good company. The implications of being tempted are many. To be tempted means we have a choice as to how we will live our lives. It means I have a choice as to the kind of person I’m going to be. Being tempted affirms our potential and capacity to do great things for God; that Satan is seeking to distract you from the things that God has in store for you. Temptation sets various options before us; one being a way of escape. The choice is yours.
