First Sunday of Lent 2016 – Matthew 4:1-2

Thursday, March 2, 2017 

Readers: My blog posts will begin appearing on the Church Health website (built on the WordPress platform) beginning Monday, March 6.  I hope you will follow me there.

Matthew 4:1-2Then Jesus was led by the Spirit into the wilderness to be tempted by the devil.  He fasted forty days and forty nights, and afterwards he was famished.

I have never used fasting as a spiritual discipline, but I have known people who found it an extremely effective way to better connect with God.  As people of faith, we are challenged to find our own ways to walk closer to God.

Loving God, help us move toward you so that we may be better disciples.  Amen.
