In Luke 4:1-13 satan tempted Jesus on 3 separate occasions. The interesting part is that satan knew WHO Jesus was, WHO His protector was, and what He could do, but satan STILL tempted him by asking him to PROVE his divinity, to PROVE His power.
Jesus later in ministry DID IN FACT prove all of these things in the working of miracles but for the RIGHT REASON! Turning rocks into bread or throwing Himself off the roof and having angels protect him COULD HAVE been done and wouldn’t have been WRONG but, for the WRONG REASON.
There are a lot of “good” things that we do or can do, but if we do them for the “wrong” reason we aren’t “serving or honoring God. In the end, isn’t that what we’re SUPPOSED to be doing?
