Matthew 4:10 Then saith Jesus unto him, Get thee hence, Satan: for it is written, Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God, and him only shalt thou serve. 11 Then the devil leaveth him, and, behold, angels came and ministered unto him.
The word translated “Get thee hence,” is an intensive imperative verb. This means it was a firm, strong command. Jesus was finished with this conversation. Satan was banished. The temptation was over...
Oh that we could find such love for God that nothing could ever overwhelm our fidelity to Him. We are too easily tempted… too easily swayed by vanity… too inclined to listen and give time to the devil. May God steal our hearts! Even when offered the world may we see it as bankruptcy compared to the riches we have in Christ Jesus!
