At the time of his temptation in Luke 4:1-13, Jesus showed character like no one else's. He had the power — Satan was right about this! — he had the power to turn the stone into bread. He was hungry enough, too. Yet here, as throughout the Gospels, Jesus refused to use his power to serve himself. He never used his extraordinary power for his own benefit. He came, as it says in Mark 10:45, to serve. This is Jesus' incomparable uniqueness.
Based on material in my book Too Good to be False: How Jesus’ Incomparable Character Reveals His Reality.
Many who’ve read this book have had their lives lit up for Christ, so I encourage you to see what God does for you through it!
