God serves those who serve Him (Lent 1)

Benjamin Homilies

Genesis tells us about the most embarrassing moment in the world, the moment when Adam and Eve sinned. Adam and Eve’s mistake was to listen to the serpent instead of serving God; they did what seemed best to them rather than doing what God asked. The fundamental choice of our whole life is whether we are going to obey God or not, whether we will serve God and others or serve ourselves. In the desert, Jesus shows us how to do it the right way; Jesus refuses to serve Himself, because He is totally dedicated to serving God and others.
