Lead Us Not Into Temptation

Five-minute Bible Study | Luke 4 
Commentary (Scripture Union)  

Lord Christ,

The things I chase 
You rejected 

Tempted with wealth
Influence and renown 
You chose a simple 
Itinerate life 
Teaching and healing 

That proved powerful 
Celebrity followed 
You didn’t monetize 
You didn’t mobilize 

Isaiah’s scroll 
Revealed your call 
The poor, oppressed 
Imprisoned and blind 
Figuratively or literally 
No matter 

I must proclaim the good news of the kingdom of God... 
Luke 4:43 

Will I embrace your call? 
It matters

Another prayer about the Temptation story.
