Read: Matthew 4.2 (NRSV)
Our journey begins and ends in God’s presence, walking with us through each day. We have been on a journey this Lenten season of study, prayer, fasting, and witnessing the hope of Easter. For it is Easter that drives us into the wilderness and what also drives us back out.
Christ’s journey has led us through our own personal journey. In these weeks we have seen how much we need Christ who can withstand all temptation to stand with us.
The end is in sight. We can now rest from our journey for tomorrow we enter the gates with thanksgiving in our hearts! Yet, be on guard that temptation not take you over.
Action Plan: Lay out what you plan to wear to church and get plenty of rest, but never forget where you would be if we had not made the trip.
Prayer: Thank you for standing with me, all the way to the end. Amen.
