1st SUNDAY OF LENT

posted Mar 12, 2011, 1:45 AM by Fabian Manukialona
The disorder that exists in the world is attributed to the human beings. Claiming absolute autonomy from God their Creator, humans fall into evil and death and lose their true freedom. But God in His mercy pours out through Jesus Christ abundance of grace on the human race. After his consecration in baptism, Jesus is led by the spirit into the desert to manifet that attitude of dependence on God which Adam and his Children failed to show in their trials. The tempter tries to prevent the coming of God's kingdom by inviting Jesus to use his miraculous power to his own advantage. Jesus totally rejects this proposal beacause hi is fully committed to do the will of the  Father from whom he receives all that is necessary. And so he decidedly chases away the tempter.
