From Pastor Mandile…

LCMS STEWARDSHIP MINISTRY Matthew 4:7 – “Jesus said to him, ‘Again it is written…’” Jesus defeats Satan in our place, not by using His power as God, but by His perfect obedience in His perfect humanity. Jesus defeats Satan not by miracles, but by quoting the Scriptures and living according to them. This should cause us great joy for two reasons. First, we see Jesus win the victory for us. Second, here Jesus shows us how to stand in that victory: on the Word of God alone.
