Lent Day 5 – 'By every word that comes from the mouth of the Lord'

Monday 6th March 2017


Luke 4 : 1 – 4

Jesus, full of the Holy Spirit, returned from the Jordan and was led by the Spirit in the wilderness, where for forty days he was tempted by the devil. He ate nothing at all during those days, and when they were over, he was famished. The devil said to him, "If you are the Son of God, command this stone to become a loaf of bread." Jesus answered him, "It is written, 'One does not live by bread alone.'"


  1. Is it just me? I am reading the Gospel of Luke and I am finding that I have more questions as I get further into the chapters. Trying to see and understand the relevance in today’s world. So much time has passed and yet this world is so full of anger and hatred.

    Sorry, I guess I am rambling now. A friend has a Bible that uses everyday language. So I am going to borrow that to see if I can relate.

  2. When I was a Sunday School teacher to teenagers I used to say to those going off to University that if they were unsure about something said in a Christian group or sermon to check it against the Bible. It is not a cure all but it will guide you in the right direction most of the time.

  4. I asked the Lord to lead me to a piece of scripture to encourage my daughter who is feeling afraid and He lead me to Joshua 1 v9, ‘Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be frightened, and do not be dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.”
