YNYSLWYI).—On Sunday morning last the pulpit of the above chapel was occupied by the Rev. R. G. Roberts, Cefnmawr, North Wales. He preached from Matthew iv., 1-4, dealing with the temptation of Christ in the Wilderness. He remarked that the temptation was an event in the life of Jesus Christ in which He was nearer to man than in any other circumstance. In his transfiguration, and upon the cross, and in his ascension, he was placed upon a level higher than all humanity, but in his temptation he was brought to our level. Jesus came out of his trials unscathed and unhurt, whilst mail often fell a prey to the temp- tation. Dealing with the three different aspects of Christ's temptation, the preacher remarked that the first, viz., the turning of stones into bread, was an enticement to indulge in the sins of the flesh. Human character was built up out of the elements of the body and the spirit of man, and in was the result of either of those counterbalancing and thus over-ruling the other. The second temp- tation of Satan to Christ was an appeal to the spirit, for he wanted Christ to dis- regard His body and hurl Himself down from the pinnacle of the temple. If Christ had this, and had allowed His body to become mangled in order to show the superiority of his spiritual nature, the glory of the Incarnation would have been spoiled, and history would not have heard of the cross or the resurrection. It was etrange that Satan should be so solicitous regarding the body of Jesus Christ in the first place; in the second place he was devilishly careless regarding its safety; and lastly, after having failed to entice Jesus both in body and spirit, he tried to obtain His complete surrender by offering Him the treasures of the whole world. This is the way Satan treated men. If he could not succeed by flanking movements such as the pleasures of body and spirit, and the passion for strong drink and other vices, he invariably, made a frontal attack which generally succeeded in bringing men upon their knees before him. There were hundreds of people ad- duced to Satan-worship, who had no de- sires, no will-power, no pleasures of their own, because they were all sacrificed to the' promotion of evil and sin. Christ had withstood the firmest of all tests, and the preacher hoped that his listeners would endeavour to do the same by ap- pealing to their Saviour for help in their time of need.
