March 9: THE WAY OUT
Today's readings launch us into Lent with the story of salvation. How did we humans get where we are? How do we get out? Genesis--through the Adam and Eve narrative--explains that we got separated from God and happiness through greed, selfishness, arrogance.
But, as Paul explained to the Romans, God has not abandoned us, and never will. We get out through the "new Adam," Jesus Christ, through whom the death of sin is conquered by the life of "overflowing grace."
From the start, though, Jesus--like Adam and Eve, like you and me--had to face "the tempter." Shown fame and wealth, he was tempted to grab for it. But Jesus saw through such foolishness. During Lent we will look at what the tempter spreads before us daily, then try to make choices that put us on the side of the angels.
