On the first Sunday of Lent, the Gospel of Mark 1:12–15 describes Jesus’ time in the wilderness where he was tempted by Satan for forty days.
The desert is a place of testing, but it is also a place to be close to God. Jesus’ time in the desert calls us to make Lent a season of growth, a season for developing habits that will make us more loving toward God and one another.
Jesus began his ministry in Galilee proclaiming the good news of God, saying, “The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God has come near; repent, and believe in the good news.” This Gospel passage reminds us that Lent is a time of repentance and preparation for the coming of the kingdom of God. Let us use this time to reflect on our own lives and turn away from sin, so that we may be ready to receive the good news of God’s kingdom.
God Bless as we Journey through Lent,
Pray for peace.
