“If you are the Son of God,” Satan said, “throw yourself down.”
We can be tempted in our thoughts. If Satan cannot pull us back, he will try to push us forward. He told Jesus to think about the possibilities. Jumping off the temple and floating down to the Jewish worshippers would have been glorious. To the Jews it would look like the Messiah was descending from heaven, except it would not have been God’s will. Just because you have a great thought or opportunity, does not mean you should “throw yourself” into it!
How do you test your thoughts?
