First Sunday of Lent (C17)

Luke 4:1-13

Leading the Witness

Jesus, full of the Holy Spirit, returned from the Jordan and was led by the Spirit in the wilderness, where for forty days he was tempted by the devil. He ate nothing at all during those days, and when they were over, he was famished. [...]

Then [after two other temptations] the devil took him to Jerusalem, and placed him on the pinnacle of the temple, saying to him, "If you are the Son of God, throw yourself down from here, for it is written, 'He will command his angels concerning you, to protect you,' and 'On their hands they will bear you up, so that you will not dash your foot against a stone.'"

Jesus answered him, "It is said, 'Do not put the Lord your God to the test.'" When the devil had finished every test, he departed from him until an opportune time.

The First Steeplechase

Cartoon Cool Stuff

Jesus resisted the temptations of materialism, power and sensationalism in his ministry. It's not a matter of "what can you offer God that he doesn't already have" but rather, the truth is free and needs no fanfare. If the Kingdom of God manifests itself in our attitude and action (the quality of our values and the strength of our conviction), then it is attainable to everyone regardless of wealth, station or marketing approach.
