Give Me the World?

Again, the devil took Him up on an exceedingly high mountain, and showed Him all the kingdoms of the world and their glory. And he said to Him, “All these things I will give You if You will fall down and worship me.”


Then Jesus said to him, “Away with you, Satan! For it is written, ‘You shall worship the Lord your God, and Him only you shall serve.’ ”

Matthew 4:8-10 NKJV


If we are offered the world in exchange for turning away from God, we really need to consider exactly what we are being asked to give up. It must be something pretty big! Satan actually tried to bargain with our Savior, God's only begotten Son. While Jesus was on His mission to save the world, the enemy of our souls still sought to thwart God's plan for our redemption. If he tried it on Jesus, how could we not understand the lengths he will go in trying to destroy us? Put on your armor. (Ephesians 6:10-18) There's a war going on!

For what will it profit a man if he gains the whole world, and loses his own soul? Mark 8:36 NKJV
