Jesus does not withdraw when we are tempted. Rather, there is a closeness to the tempted Christ, Christ in the desert. We know that Jesus was not only tempted, but he was victorious.
St. Augustine says that, ‘The Lord wants us to share, to be united with him in temptation, so that we can be united with him in victory.’
“Brothers and sisters, as you endure temptation, unite yourself with Christ, the tempted Christ in the desert. Allow him to give you victory.”
