There is something very interesting in the last line of Luke’s narrative of the Temptation of Jesus (Luke 4:1-13):

[13] And when the devil had ended every temptation, he departed from him until an opportune time.

This is a powerful statement that demands further reflection.  Consider:

That being said, Satan continues to lurk in the shadows today, seeking to tempt men today.  Satan is relentless and vicious and will stop at nothing to seek to corrupt men.

Our only hope, which is a sure hope, is in the Triumph of Jesus Christ.   Give yourself to Him now, while you still may.

May the peace and love of Jesus Christ be with us all.
