Scripture: Luke 4:5-7
In Luke 4:5-7 we see Jesus in the final temptation of His life! Jesus was offered a shortcut to all the authority He came to possess. All He had to do pros-koo-ney-o which means ‘To bow the knee and lick the hand.’ Pros-koo-ney-o pictures a puppy bowing to its master in order to gain food. If Jesus were to bow His knee and lick satan’s hand, satan said He would give all authority to Jesus. But Jesus said no. His saying no enabled Him to gain it through death. When Jesus was illegally cut off, He paid for the authority to cut off the enemy! It is now just a prayer away!
