Then was Jesus led up of the spirit into the wilderness to be tempted of the devil.
1. We may learn that it is never the will of God we should voluntarily enter into temptation.
2. We ought to pray that God would not "bring" us into it.
3. But should God lead us, as He led Christ, into temptation, then we may confidently appeal to God for grace to overcome.
(G. S. Barrett, B. A.)
