Then Jesus was led up by the Spirit into the wilderness to be tempted by the devil.
Jesus was led by the Spirit into temptation. As soon as He was filled with the Holy Spirit He was brought to this barren place to face the enemy of mankind. Thank God He overcame the temptations presented to Him there! This must be why He was able to tell us that we should pray, "do not lead us into temptation." He was led there for us--in place of us. He overcame temptation for each and every one. Whatever temptations face you today, put your trust in the One who overcame all temptation--so you could too! Thank you Jesus!
