Tempted three times by Satan in the wilderness, Jesus stayed true to His nature as the Son of God. He resisted the urge to use His power to alleviate the suffering inherent in His humanity, to put anyone or anything above God, and kept His faith and trust in God. As Jesus well knew, and as we should remember this Lent, God is with us in every aspect of our lives. We are never alone, and Jesus is proof of that.
The Scripture references are Deuteronomy 26:1-11, Psalm 91:9-16, and Romans 10:8b-13. The Gospel reference is Luke 4:1-13.
