Led by the Spirit…To be tempted!

Image hosted by Photobucket.com

This morning’s Bible reading was from Matthew 3-4. It says that Jesus was led by the Spirit into the desert to be tempted. It doesnt make sense that the Spirit’s intention in leading him into the desert would be so that Jesus would be tempted but that is what it says. It really makes me think about the purpose of temptation and why I have it in my life. Is temptation something that I should be asking God to rid my life of? What if the Spirit is the one that put it there like He did with Jesus. I think too often we only think of the Spirit as giving us good things but what do we do when he gives us something we don’t want?
