The Power Of “It Is Written”

Key Verse

“Then saith Jesus unto him, Get thee hence, Satan: for it is written, Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God, and him only shalt thou serve” (Matthew 4:10).

TEXT — Matthew 4:1-11


On October 7, 1857, C. H. Spurgeon preached to his largest audience ever. A few days before the event, Spurgeon had gone to the huge hall to test the acoustics. Stepping into the pulpit, he lifted up his voice like a silver trumpet and proclaimed, “Behold the Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world!” Then Spurgeon repeated the one verse again: “Behold the Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world!” Satisfied with the acoustics, he left and went his way. Unknown to him, there were two men working in the rafters of that large auditorium. One of the men was pricked in his conscience by the verse Spurgeon quoted and became a believer later that day! Such is the penetrating power of God’s eternal word!

In today’s text, Satan attempted to trick our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ three times to surrender to his evil antics. Three times, Jesus spoke the Word and shut down the devil’s suggestions.

While it may not be wrong for Jesus to perform these miracles demonstrating divine unction after forty days and forty nights of fasting, the result will not glorify God but the enemy of all that is righteous.

We must never forget that Jesus repudiated the devil with the written word of God. As children of God, the devil will attempt to lure us into sin as he did our Master; but like the Lord, we should use the Word to counter his effronteries. As Jesus got victory over the devil, we are assured of comprehensive victory too if we also firmly and confidently resist him with God’s living, active and wonder-working Word. There is power in the Word!

Thought for the day

Use the awesome power that resides in the word of God.
