The Uniqueness Of Christ (10)

When Jesus goes into the wilderness, He does not go alone. He is ‘led by the Spirit’, ’sent’ by the Spirit, ‘full of the Holy Spirit’. ‘The Spirit descends and remains on Him’ (Matthew 4:1; Mark 1:12; Luke 4:1; John 1:34). Jesus is ready for Satan. When Satan comes, questioning Jesus’ divine Sonship - ‘If you are the Son of God’ (Matthew 4:3; Luke 4:3,9), Jesus is ready for him. Armed with the Word of God - ‘It is written’ (Matthew 4:4; Luke 4:4,10) - Jesus triumphs over Satan.
