Here is a call for the endurance of the saints, those who keep the commandments of God and hold fast to the faith of Jesus. (Revelation 14:12
Jesus once again countered the devil's temptation by quoting scripture, "Do not put the Lord your God to the test." Of course, Jesus could have leaped from the temple and angels would have rescued him. And he would have won an instant following. People from all over would want him to jump from the temple again and again. Pretty soon, though, they would get tired of seeing him jump from the temple and would want him to jump from higher places. Jesus resisted the devil's second temptation because he knew that faith could not be built upon the sensational.
Lord Jesus, help my faith grow through your word and not by the sensational. In Jesus' name, Amen.
