Re: Why was Jesus led by the Spirit into the wilderness to be tempted/tested?
I totally agree that the necessity for Christ's temptation is so that He genuinely went through all we go through - that He truly was tested, and found perfect.
However, BroRog's post does really draw to attention the fact that, as I'd never actually noticed before, the Spirit led Christ out, to be tempted.
When Christ tells us how to pray, He says we are to ask to be led not into temptation - yet here we find just the opposite occurring, by the Holy Spirit. I do find that a little odd, if I'm honest.
Call to Me and I will answer you, and will tell you great and hidden things that you have not known. Jeremiah 33:3
You put the stars in the sky and you know them by name, You see the depths of my heart and You love me the same, You are amazing, God.
I do not 'hope' I am saved and I do not 'think' I am saved, I know it with an absolute conviction. I know that I am saved just as I know that I think and I know that I feel. I am purchased and sealed, His possession.
