Luke 4 - Key

v4

And Jesus answered him, saying, It is written, That man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word of God.

I was impressed by how well Jesus knew the Word. He responded to specific temptations with specific quotations, over and over again.

v43

And he said unto them, I must preach the kingdom of God to other cities also: for therefore am I sent.

Jesus talked about Biblical events, the widow woman in the famine (v25,26) and the Syrian with leprosy (v27). Like Jesus, we should know the Word well, and use it to overcome temptation, and to share it with other people.

Application

I should be faithful to encourage a couple of people that I'm supposed to be helping to memorize Romans 6.
