Daily Devotion from the Church Health Center – Mark 1:9-13

Friday, February 24, 2012 – First Sunday of Lent, Year B

Mark 1:9-13In those days Jesus came from Nazareth in Galilee and was baptized by John the Baptist in the Jordan. And just as Jesus was coming up out of the water, he saw the heavens torn apart and the Spirit descending like a dove on him. And a voice came from heaven, “You are my Son, the Beloved; with you I am well pleased.” And the Spirit immediately drove him out into the wilderness. He was in the wilderness forty days, tempted by Satan; and he was with the wild beasts; and the angels waited on him.

Like Jesus in today’s scripture, we symbolically venture into the wilderness for forty days during Lent. Lent leads to Easter and the Resurrection, and it is my prayer that this season will be life-affirming to each of you.

Prayer: Steadfast God, thank you for walking beside us each day. Help us to know your true voice so that we won’t be distracted along the way. AMEN.
