(First Sunday in Lent, Year C, Luke 4:1-13)

Subtle temptations.
Who doesn’t want to be the hero?

Tempted to look significant.
To be mighty.
To be magnificent.

At what cost?

If you are the Son of God . . .

A harsh challenge.

We belong to God.
We are God’s beloved.
Do not be tempted to doubt this truth.
