When we think of the temptation of Jesus, we think of the three-fold temptation at the beginning of his ministry. We secretly think it must have been easy for Jesus—only being tempted once. Reality is that Jesus continued to be tempted—sometimes by his own human desires and other times by direct assault of Satan. Jesus, in the Garden of Gethsemane, is tried, tempted and tortured in his own spirit by Satan. Temptation seems as strong today as at any other time in my life. I am glad my Savior was tempted in every way as I (Hebrew 4:15).
