Highest priority in the life

Posted by admin on 18 November 2013 in John, Matthew |

Jesus who appears in John 4 was weary (John 4:6), thirsty (John 4:7) and hungry (John 4:8).

He became like us to become a merciful and faithful high priest (Hebrews 2:16-18) and to sympathize our weaknesses (Hebrews 4:15-16).

In Matthew 4, Jesus was hungry after fasting for 40 days and 40 nights (Matthew 4:2). And the devil tempted Him to tell stones to become bread (Matthew 4:3). This was the 1st temptation among 3 temptations recorded in Matthew 4. Even though He was hungry, the fasting made Him ready for the tests. But the devil tempted Him to affect His readiness (preparation) for the tests including remaining 2 other tests.

Will the devil tempt us against our preparation or readiness? ‘Yes’ especially if you are (will be) a God’s kingdom builder.

Jesus said in John 4:34.

34 “My food,” said Jesus, “is to do the will of him who sent me and to finish his work.

Jesus taught in Matthew 6.

… do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink;… (Matthew 6:6). 33 But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well (Matthew 6:33).

This teaches us the priority, which was shown in the life of Jesus.
