Matthew 4:1-11 – SATAN OFFERS – JESUS OFFERS
1 John 2:15-17 – Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him. For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world. And the world passeth away, and the lust thereof: but he that doeth the will of God abideth for ever.
SATAN OFFERS THE PHYSICAL – JESUS OFFERS GOD’S WORD – Vss. 3-4 – Lust of the Flesh versus the Word of God
SATAN OFFERS THE PERSONAL (humanism) – JESUS OFFERS GOD’S WISDOM (Don’t tempt God) – Vss. 5-6 – Pride of Life versus the Wisdom of God
SATAN OFFERS THE PRACTICAL – JESUS OFFERS GOD’S WORSHIP – Vss. 9-10 – Lust of the Eyes (Satan is saying, “You see it. You want it. Worship me and I will give it to you.”) versus the Worship of God
