1st Sunday of Lent - C
The Son of God's MO
The three temptation Jesus faces are
1. Temptation to satisfy his own needs and self-centeredness,
2. Temptation to control and others and have them serve his needs,
3. Temptation to control even God and to have God serve me.
That is the devil's MO.
The true Son of God's MO is the loving service of God and all humanity, even to the point of death.
That was how Jesus spent his life. And he fulfilled the mission of bringing God to us and us to God. He showed us the love of God as the face of the Father's mercy.
