It is written

“He said in reply: It is written: …” (Mt 4:4) 

Jesus Christ, the Son of God, the Second Person in the Holy Trinity, the Eternal Word, used only the Bible in His dialogue with the tempter. He didn’t use any other argument. He only repeated three times: it is written. And it was enough. “The devil left him” (Mt 4:11).

I followed this example and found the appropriate sentences in the Bible for some of the devil’s temptations. And instead of fighting with him by myself, I am hiding behind the shield made by His Word.

“One does not live by bread alone, but by every word that comes forth from the mouth of God” (Mt 4:4) – Communion Antiphon
