“ Jesus was led by the Spirit into the desert and was tempted.”
We see the devil’s temptations at work in today’s Gospel. We see the Lord Jesus
tempted by Satan. The Holy Spirit led Jesus into the desert, a hostile and dangerous
wilderness for 40 days. There, in the desert, Jesus would spiritually prepare Himself
for His public ministry, and ultimately His death and resurrection, for our eternal
salvation, by facing the same temptations that we face.
The devil knew that something was going on with Jesus, but he wasn’t quite sure
what it was. He wasn’t sure if this was the Messiah that the Scriptures had promised
would come. So, he decided to temp Jesus, just as he tempted Adam and Eve to eat
the forbidden fruit in the Garden of Eden., just as he tempted the Israelites in the
desert where they wandered for 40 years, just as he tempts you and me!
Jesus turned to His heavenly Father for the strength He needed to resist Satan’s
temptations. He did not lose sight of His reason for being in the desert, His
preparation for His ministry. Jesus’ ministry was one of truth, love and forgiveness,
that led to His death and resurrection and to eternal salvation for each of us.
Today is the First Sunday of Lent. Lent is our 40 days of penance and preparation
for Easter, when our Lord rose in the glory of God the Father, after overcoming sin
and death. We must confront our temptations from the devil, just as Jesus did in the
desert. Jesus relied on His love and relationship with His Father to give Him the
strength to resist Satan’s temptations. We must rely on our love and relationship
with Jesus to strengthen us to resist the temptations of the devil. Jesus, our strength,
comes to us in the Eucharist that we receive at Mass. We are members of Jesus’
Body, the Church, and He will not abandon us to the desert of temptation and sin.

wrestled with temptation. Our faith tells us
that we are meant to live our lives in service
of God's kingdom. Yet, we often find our-
selves pursuing our own desires rather than
God's. The Gospel clearly tells us that true
power is found in the embrace of virtue -
living lives of non-violence, mercy, and for-
giveness. Yet, we still are not convinced and
seek things that will hurt us and retaliate
against those who harm us. When Jesus
faced temptation, he found security in who
he was, which firmly rooted him in his mis-
sion and gave him the determination to trust
in God. We, too, must learn to find security
in our identity as a son or daughter of God,
to live out our mission rooted in that truth,
and to be confident in God's abiding pres-
