For Sunday 18 February 2018

 

As we gather for worship on the first Sunday in Lent we hear of the temptation of our Lord and also of the Lord’s testing of Abraham. This astonishing test draws our thoughts to a Father who “did not spare his own Son, but gave him up for us all” (Romans 8:32), while the temptation reveals the beginning of Jesus’ victory over Satan for us. In the epistle, James helps clarify the sometimes confusing distinction between temptation and testing. The former leads to sin, the latter means to confirm and strengthen faith. God brings good from testing, but even temptation cannot frustrate his purpose for our salvation. Christ’s victory when tempted by Satan means that all who cling to Jesus in faith will be judged “not guilty” in him
