Jesus tempted by the devil
The temptations of the devil are the same as our sinful desire to make Jesus do things our way: make earthly bread for us; show your piety from the temple's pinnacle. And these are what tempt us as well: we want earthly rather than heavenly bread, and we want to be seen by men. These are manifestations of the primeval temptation, to worship the devil rather than the Creator. Jesus worshiped only his Father, and gave himself for us, that we, in him, may be restored to the Father. Sermon for Lent I.
