Many of us know the story of Jesus being tempted by the devil in the wilderness at the start of his ministry, as depicted in this famous painting by James Jaques Tissot. What we often overlook in that story is that Jesus didn’t end up in that situation by trickery or accident. The Gospel of Matthew tells us that it was the Spirit of God who led him there. Wait! What? What happened to “Lead us not into temptation?” What is God up to here, and what does that mean for me? Join me as we enter into the wilderness of Lent and think it through.
