“Swords up!” 

That’s the way my youth pastor used to start a Bible game called Sword Drill. After raising our Bibles high in the air, he called out a specific Bible passage and then said, “Go!” The first person to locate the passage, stand up and read it aloud won the round of points. Of course, the advantage always went to the person with the most Scripture stored up in his heart.

Nobody played Sword Drill better than Jesus. When he was led into the wilderness to be tempted by the devil, he drew his sword of the Spirit which is the word of God not once, not twice, but three times. Score Jesus three and the devil zero.
