Topic: Building for God
[Rev. Elmer W. Rinkel, in the Beacon,
Jesus was always willing to do what he asks us to do. Too often we look upon the temptation experience as an incident revealing the humanity of Jesus, and showing him therefore as subject to temptations. We forget that immediately preceding the temptations he had received a definite call to be the "Son of God," and build the kingdom of God upon this earth. In answer to that call he retired into the wilderness to think through what he would have to do, and what it would cost him to achieve this great purpose. Three ways presented themselves to him.
First, the easy way of supplying the physical and material needs of people; feed, clothe, house them, and they will be your followers forever. "No," replied Jesus.... Three years later we see the results of this decision when he said, "Not my will, but thine, be done."
