Homily Extract - Three Temptations to the Misuse of Power

By Fr Paul Cheong, OFM. Cap.

Jesus’ three temptations are temptations to misuse power for purposes that are less than God’s purposes. They are temptations to be spectacular, powerful, and to misuse religion. Jesus passes all three tests, and thus the devil left him to begin His public ministry because He could not be used for lesser purposes. We need to confront such demons within ourselves so that God can and will use us effectively for His purposes.
