Another Thought on Mark

I’m sure this isn’t an original thought to me.

Adam and Eve were in a beautiful garden with full stomachs, well rested, perfect fellowship and perfect relationship with each other and God, and they could not resist the temptation of Satan.

Jesus was in a wilderness, hungry, alone, exhausted, physically separated from the other persons of the Trinity (don’t understand that, but . . . ) and still resisted Satan.

Such is the difference between the Divine and the created. His ways are that different from ours.
