First Sunday of Lent
Luke 4:1-13


All the temptations of Jesus had to do with power, and they were all short cuts to avoid the cross. They also appealed to the desire of people for the spectacular. But Jesus decided to dedicate his life to sharing with us how much God loves us. Like Jesus, we are faced with choices. Jesus made a choice that would change the world through love. That is the choice you and I need to make every day by living in the present moment, holy moments filled with an awareness of God.
