Devotional for Week of March 29, 2020

Prayer: Heavenly Father, I pray that You will fill me with the Holy Spirit that I may live at a deeper level of commitment to You than I ever have before. This I pray in Jesus’ name. Amen.

Reflection on God’s Word: 1Then Jesus, full of the Holy Spirit, returned from the Jordan River. He was led by the Spirit in the wilderness, 2where he was tempted by the devil for forty days. Jesus ate nothing all that time and became very hungry. Luke 4:1-2 NLT

Why was Jesus “Full of the Holy Spirit”? (You may have to read Luke 3!) Why do you think Jesus was tempted for 40 days before the start of His ministry on earth? Today’s Challenge: I will live in the power of the Holy Spirit so that I may be prepared for the temptations of the devil in my life!
