Temptation is a problem that has plagued humanity from the time it was introduced by the devil in the Garden of Eden. However, temptation is not sin; it is what leads us to sin. According to the bible, it is device of the devil that he uses as an attempt to draw us from God. The devil uses temptation as a mind game by making the truth appear to be a lie. He used this mind game on Eve which resulted in she and Adam's fall in the garden. He even tried to use it on Jesus in an attempt to get him to focus on his own personal priorities instead of focusing on the will of God. After overcoming three back-to-back temptations of the devil, Jesus finally told him, "Be gone." The purpose of this lesson is to help us look to Jesus, through his word, which can assist us in overcoming temptation.
