Matthew 4:1&2 ” Then Jesus was led up by the Spirit into the wilderness to be tempted by the devil. And after He had fasted forty days and forty nights He became hungry.

Christ’s Ministry is about to begin, He has just come up from His baptism and He now is in the desert to fast. Why? Is Jesus preparing for the launch of His Ministry? The Church recalls this season to remember His fast, the season of Lent in which we give up something in our daily lives. We try to spend more time in solitude and pray to the Lord, grow in meditation and thus be led by the spirit and not self.

How is your Season of Lent progressing? Have you grown in a deeper appreciation for what Christ endured because of our sin natures? Think of what Jesus endured for each and every one of us. Try to overcome your egoity, the idea that you are separated from Christ or from one another. The spirit is ever available and is omnipresent. Learn this truth. It is only your illlusional sense of self, your ego, that separates you. In truth God can never be any closer that He is now and shall always be as, God in Omnipresent. Learn to grow in truth. What are you sacrificing or willing to let go of, maybe your self??

Mid-Week Prayer: ” Lord, over and over I allow this world and my delusional beliefs to impact the truth of who I am in Thee. Lord I need help to understand the truth and to be free. Help me to overcome myself. Help me to be the disciple you have called me to be. May I grow in sacrifice in this season and overcome. Amen!! “
