There are many teachings and commands of Jesus that are simply difficult to consistently obey. Jesus offers one of those challenges in this section of Luke’s gospel. Jesus begins by letting us know that temptations are going to come. Regardless of how much we grow, how much we read the scriptures, and pray, temptations are going to come. Satan is coming after us. Coming to Jesus and becoming a follower of him does not mean that you will have an easy life. The temptations you are fighting you will still have to fight. Satan is still going to try to exploit your weaknesses and vices.
