What Do You Really Want?

On this first Sunday in Lent, we see Jesus move from a glowing mountain-top experience to a 40-day struggle in the wilderness. He has eaten nothing the entire time, and the devil seizes the opportunity to tempt him three times. And the devil fails.

We, too, have our wilderness moments. Times when we feel weakened and under attack. Times when temptations seem overwhelming. Times when we may wonder where God is, or if it would really be "all that bad" to give in just a little...

How we choose to approach those moments often comes down to deciding what we really want in life. Do we want what the devil offers, or what God offers? And of the 2, who do you think we can really trust?
