Jesus resists the devil for us
Behold, now is the day of salvation. So all that went before reaches its fruition in Christ. Now we see the greater Isaac offered for us and for our salvation; now we see the fulfillment of all the Scriptures. And so now we also must ponder his offering for us, and learn that man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceeds out of the mouth of God. For it is our daily fault that we so easily forget this, and turn to what we see and experience for our support and sustenance, and forget the weightier matters, the substance of things unseen: Christ the Bread of Life. And we see how he resisted Satan for us, and drove him away, so that we, who move through our wilderness pilgrimage through life, find Christ there in the wilderness with us. And though it is so easy to fast and engage in bodily ways to impress people with our spirituality (to our great shame), we find that he resisted all temptation in order that we through his resistance might be redeemed and saved. The journey through Lent is a voluntary one, and is best done by turning in confidence to him who endured all things for us. (there was no recording of the audio today)
