Recovery in the Bible (RIB)


WHO IS DRIVING?

Does God live in the temple of the believers's body? If so, are we going with Him? Or are we simply wearing His badge and following our own wits and way? Satan taunts us by suggesting that, if we are saved and sanctified, then everyone we know should be saved, too. But if that were the case, what has Jesus Christ been doing all these years?

Our temptation is to claim that God will do something to prove Himself through us. This is a temptation of the devil, who proposed a leap from the high place to prove Jesus was indeed the Son of God. Jesus was not wimpy when He replied, "You shall not tempt the LORD your GOD." We wear Christ's badge, but are we going with Him?

This post is based on thoughts by Oswald Chambers on the temptations of Christ in the wilderness (Luke 4).
