Be Ready for Opposition

Be Ready for Opposition Luke 4:1-13 Main Point: We must follow Jesus’ example in order to overcome the opposition of the evil one. Colossians 1:13-14; I John 4:4 Jesus was tempted in every way common to us - Hebrews 4:15-16 1. Jesus was full of the Holy Spirit and so must we be! verse 1 Full of the Holy Spirit = ‘An empty vessel completely filled’ ‘Completely permeated with’ 2. Satan tempted Jesus in three areas: a. Appetite – v. 2 He will tempt us with our appetites- b. Pride/self-will (vvs. 9-12) He will tempt us to use God for our ends - c. Compromise (vvs.5-7) He will tempt us to compromise our walk- 3. To overcome the evil one’s temptations Jesus rebuked satan with the Word/Truth – and so must we! (vvs. 4, 8,12) The Truth of God is our strength and defense! Ephesians 6:17 Put the full armor of God....> 'the sword of the Spirit, which is the wprd of God.' We can overcome because Jesus overcame for us!
