Filey Parish people Blog in Lent day 10 Brian Williams
Lent reminds one of the temptation of Jesus as he fasted for 40days in the wilderness. It is a time to reflect on how Satan tempts us and how we can resist temptation with the help of Jesus the Overcomer. Also Jesus used words of the Bible to resist temptation so we need to search for the appropriate verses in the Bible for our own temptations. When we do succumb, unlike Jesus we need to repent with the help of the Holy Spirit who enabled Jesus to overcome temptation.
