We left off in verse 5, of Matthew 4, the second of the three temptations of Christ by the devil. It's very instructive for us, as we look at the way Heaven's Champion, and the undefeated enemy of man collided here in the desert. The devil doesn't play fair, he's a crafty and sly opponent. Jesus however was victorious and He has showed us the way. Because He was tempted like we are, no one will have compassion on us quite like He will. This was a powerful study for many of us.
