HOW TO SUCCEED IN WILDERNESS
Are we ready to succeed like Jesus? Jesus came as a Saviour, to save human beings from sin and evil, Jesus is led by the Spirit into the wilderness full of danger from wild animals, scorpion and lack of food/water and He was tempted by the devil. Is there still devil in our world today?
“Surveys show that many people today do not believe in the existence of the devil. Maybe they don’t want to believe. Jesus took the reality and power of the devil very seriously. The devil is a personal, evil power who rebelled against God and tries to lead us astray. He tried to lead Jesus away from his full mission into compromised situations where he would be giving bread instead of his word, seeking power rather than worship of the Father, testing God’s providence instead of total trust. The prayer taught by Jesus finishes with the petition to deliver us from the evil one. …” (Silvester O’ Flynn OFM Cap). Imitate Jesus, follow Him.
