Good News Inspiration for Daily Life
Description: For the 1st Sunday of Lent, Matthew 4:1-11 shows us the first thing that Jesus did after his baptismal anointing in the Jordan River: He wrestled with temptation. We can imagine how this experience in the Jordan River gave him the feeling of an elated spiritual high. And the next thing that happens is an attack of the devil. The same pattern repeats itself in our lives.
Ideas for use: Bulletin insert for February 18, adult education, Lenten faith sharing groups, RCIA class, etc.
