UNION WITH CHRIST (LUKE 4:1-13) ShareIn Luke 4:1-13, we journey with Jesus into the desert. Jesus’ life is our life if we’re sincere about our faith. We experience union with Christ by receiving his body and blood in the Eucharist. We meet him in the scriptures and walk with him on the path to heaven. For Lent – or any time of year – we unite ourselves to Jesus’ victory over temptation and sin. This is how to have a successful faith life. Consider your own struggles with temptation; reflect on how sin makes your life feel barren and dry like a desert. When we walk with Jesus, we unite ourselves to his struggle with the devil and to his victory over the devil. Our temptations become his temptations, and in our efforts to remain united to him, we reject Satan and choose the life of holiness.
