Temptation

Satan tempts the human race, the Bible says, right from the first man and woman till now. No doubt, he especially tried his hardest to tempt the Son of God to sin, exerting all his powers of temptation on Him and failing in the attempt. Now, “how” Jesus overcame will be the same order for how we overcome, in Him. One key is in Jesus’ statement that satan has “nothing in me”. Satan could not get a foothold in Jesus’ life for there was no place for him in Jesus life, he had nothing invested in Him. Jesus gave no place to the devil, so the devil could not take any place. The place was reserved for the Father, as our bodies are reserved, set apart, sanctified, for the Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
