First Sunday of Lent

Luke 4:1-13

There are temptations to take short cuts to everything in this world but anything that is worthwhile requires sacrifice. It might not be the most popular route to take, it certainly will not meet with the standards of this world. But where would we be today without someone who dared to take the road less travelled. Where would we be today without the meritorious suffering of Jesus? Let’s not make a mockery of Jesus’ decision to love us unto death.
