What would do if we were on the mountain with Jesus being tempted in the same manor? Run? Fight back? Engage the devil just as Jesus did? If we run he will follow, if we fight he will fight harder, and if we engage we've already lost. The devil always wins when we allow him in; he destroys the soul once we engage him, we allow him to wreak havoc in our lives. The answer is that we must stand behind Jesus and allow him to fight for us. But Jesus doesn't just want to fight the evil one, He wants a friendship with us. We must deepen it this Lenten season.
