Yesterday in Sunday the kids looked at the Holy Spirit leading Jesus into the wilderness where he was tempted. Jesus did not give in to temptation. Each time Jesus was tempted, He remembered God’s Word.
The writer of Hebrews said that our high priest—Jesus—can sympathize with our weaknesses because He was tested in every way we are, yet He never sinned. Jesus was tempted, but He never sinned. Jesus is perfect and righteous. A perfect sacrifice was required to take away sin. Jesus was that perfect sacrifice. He died on the cross to free us from sin and to give us the power to say no to temptation.
