Better than None Luke 4:9-13 #walkingwithjesus

Jerusalem is the destination To look down from the Temple's height And using God's promise by implication The devil tempted with a subtle slight "Show how precious are you to heaven's plan; Cast yourself down; show me your trust; You are it's center-piece, the Son of Man. They'll not let you fall; save you, they must." But he would not respond to the Tempters baiting He resisted, counted himself better than none The matter of his glory, in His Father waiting To be lifted up, cast down, for His will to be done. Just begun is his trial, he will yet cry from the tree My God, my God, why? Why hast Thou forsaken me?
