1 Week of May 20, 2012 Lessons for the Leader Have ever been tempted to take advantage of something or someone? What about someone asking to prove r worth? Or someone asking that take r eyes off of what know to be true and good, toward something fleeting? Read Matthew 4:1-4. In His flesh, Jesus was hungry; Satan, knowing this, tested Him with food. However, notice Jesus' response. Jesus knew the best way to beat Satan was to quote Scripture and to rely on God's strength. Read verses 5-7. One of the interesting facts about Satan is He knows God s Word. He knows it, quotes it, and uses it against us, even in the face of the one and only Messiah. Notice how Jesus turns Scripture against Satan and states testing God is not wise (Deuteronomy 6:16). Read verses Satan also tested Jesus with power and control. Jesus had power over all this and more, yet Satan still dangled it like a prize in front of Him. After this test, Jesus commanded Satan to leave Him alone. Notice the next phrase, as it is pertinent to Jesus' foundation worship and serve. Reflect on Jesus' temptations. In what ways does Satan tempt? How well do stand up to his temptations? Do know Scripture well enough to resist Satan's ploys? How do rely on God's help to say no to temptation? What temptations do and the children teach face? Pray exemplify Jesus to the children teach. Pray for God's help to overcome temptations. What do these symbols mean? 1aApplication Activities Format: Follow the numbers with arrows for a 30-minute, large group plus 20-minute Application Activities format.
