The Temptation of Jesus

Just when we commit to honor God temptations seem to arise! We decide to begin tithing and growing more generous, when suddenly our car breaks down with a big mechanic bill. We devote ourselves to academic integrity, when a friend devises the perfect scheme to cheat on an exam. We commit to breaking a substance addiction, then we find ourselves where that substance is offered. Temptations often arise when we make commitments and while we are most vulnerable. We’ll learn from Jesus, when he was fiercely tempted while vulnerable in the wilderness, how we can protect ourselves to follow Christ, and why Jesus’ obedience was so important for God’s plan of salvation.
