A test determines the extent and limit of our ability, knowledge, and power. Tests reveal our strengths and weaknesses - showing us parts of our lives that we might not otherwise notice.
Temptation, like testing, uncovers those parts of our hearts where we our vulnerable. The weaknesses of Adam & Eve are redeemed by the Lord, who faced his three temptations and triumphed over them. May we turn to Christ and draw strength, that even when we are tempted, we can trust in his grace.
