"Man must live, not on bread alone, but on every utterance coming forth through Jehovah's mouth." (Matthew 4:4)
The Devil tried to break the integrity of Jesus. In the wilderness, Satan used temptations in an effort to get Jesus to compromise His obedience to Jehovah. However, Jesus refused to make use of his God-given power for personal benefit. Today, the Devil seeks to exploit the natural physical desires of Jehovah's servants. We must therefore be resolute in resisting sexual temptations, which are especially common in this immoral world. God's Word emphatically states: "What! Do you not know that unrighteous persons will not inherit God's kingdom? Do not be misled. Neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor men kept for unnatural purposes, nor men who lie with men . . . will inherit God's kingdom." (1 Corinthians 6:9, 10) People who live immoral lives and refuse to change will not be allowed to live in God's new world.
