Temptation

By Benjamin Anabaraonye

Temptation

In the wilderness,Christ was tempted

Those forty days, He prayed and fasted;

Getting ready to start ministry,

He was ambushed by the enemy.

The Son of God yet Son of man

Faced the assaults of satan

Tempted by satan in many ways

Hear what the enemy said:

“You’re hungry and need to be fed

So turn these stones to bread;

If you are the Son of God, then

Selfishly display your power to men.”

“Acknowledge me and bow down,

And i’ll give you earth’s most beautiful towns,”

Tempting Christ to lust and pride

But victoriously Christ did stride.

Since God’s Son was not exempted

We,as God’s children,will also be tempted

By God’s Word, Christ overcame

And we can do just the same.

Temptation can come any day

So we must watch and pray

And he can use man or woman

To carry out his deadly plan.

But when he comes as he would

We must stand strong as we should

Putting on the whole armor of God,

Put satan to flight by God’s Word!

Put on the whole armour of God,that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.Ephesians 6 vs 11(KJV)

Benjamin Anabaraonye is a Christian poet and Church historian.
