Lent Reflection: March 30th

At once the Spirit sent him out into the desert, and he was in the desert forty days, being tempted by Satan. He was with the wild animals, and angels attended him.  After John was put in prison, Jesus went into Galilee, proclaiming the good news of God.  "The time has come," he said. "The kingdom of God is near. Repent and believe the good news!" -Mark 1:12-15

The Spirit sent him out into the desert. It is often good for us to be reminded of the fact that God is always leading us, guiding us, sending us, and watching over us. Lent is a great time to be reminded that we are not in control. A time to let go and give God permission to work in our lives.
