The temptation of Jesus in the wilderness is always a familiar but hard-to-understand story. It seems like an other-worldly struggle between “the devil” (all pointy tailed and horned) and the superhero of heaven, Jesus. That, however, makes the story of little use to us in our daily life. We don’t generally encounter “the Devil,” nor do we have divine superpowers. The truth of the story is that this devil is, in fact, all too familiar, part of our daily existences. The truth is that the trials and temptations we face are constant. The truth is that the way we are saved in the time of trial is readily available and close at hand.
