Few of us have spent 40-days in the wilderness like Jesus did, but that is exactly what Lent challenges us to do. Here’s a brief meditation that I am presenting tonight for our community lenten service.
The Wilderness: A Lenten Meditation
Matthew 4:1-11 NIV(1984)
1 Then Jesus was led by the Spirit into the desert to be tempted by the devil. 2 After fasting forty days and forty nights, he was hungry. 3 The tempter came to him and said, “If you are the Son of God, tell these stones to become bread.”
