Temptations need to be discerned for what they are.  Satan disguises himself as a lamb, a light bearer, a kind counselor and a truth sharer.  He also likes for temptations not to be seen as temptations.  He wants you to think that it is reasonable and makes sense.  He had a different way for Jesus to live out his vocation as Messiah.  He has a plan for you to tone down the claims of the gospel.  Resist him!  Submit to Christ’s Lordship!

“Jesus said to him, “Away with you, Satan! for it is written, ‘Worship the Lord your God, and serve only him.’” Matthew 4:10 (NRSV)
