Scripture for the First Sunday in Lent

And Jesus, full of the Holy Spirit, returned from the Jordan and was led by the Spirit in the wilderness for forty days, being tempted by the devil. And he ate nothing during those days. And when they were ended, he was hungry. The devil said to him, “If you are the Son of God, command this stone to become bread.” And Jesus answered him, “It is written, ‘Man shall not live by bread alone.’” ~ Luke 4:1-4 (ESV) 

Lord God, just as Jesus resisted the devil with the words “it is written,” help me to know Your Word so well that it will protect me against all temptation. When tempted by the world, the flesh, and devil, let me respond, “it is written …” In Jesus’ name. Amen.
