JESUS TEMPTED BY THE DEVIL WITH THE PRIDE OF LIFE: "THROW YOURSELF DOWN FOR THE ANGELS TO LIFT YOU UP" (LUKE 4:9-12)
People are doing things for their own reasons, regarding what they want in life. That is the pride of life. What did Jesus want out of life? Remember, He is the Son of God. Did that truth never, even for an instant, go to His head, especially in being a Man that appeared to be so common among other men? Did He ever think, "Maybe I should do something to really make Myself stand out." That's exactly what the devil hoped He would do.

Jesus answered and said to them, “It is not those who are well who need a physician, but those who are sick. I have not come to call the righteous but sinners to repentance.”
