These readings are very relevant in today's world. We face many temptations every day, but many times, unlike Jesus, we are unable to overcome these temptations. Luckily, we have God to forgive us of these sins and we have Jesus as an example to overcome and avoid these temptations. Sin has created the divide between us and God, but Jesus did not have this divide. We strive to have the pure relationship that Jesus had with God.
