Siding With the Lord is Tempting

Genesis 9:8-17
Psalm 25
1 Peter 3:13-22
Mark 1:9-15

As we set out on this Lenten journey, are we as focused as Jesus? As we grow weak and tired, will we remember the truth of our baptism: that WE are claimed…chosen as God's beloved. As we walk along life’s path, will we rest assured that Christ walks with us? The work is not easy in this wilderness called life, but it is important.

What trials and temptations are taking your focus off of the Lord? What sins are taking away your strength and leaving you weak and vulnerable to the devil? What brokenness is distracting you from the fact that you are a child of God, loved by Him? We know that siding with the world is tempting, but we also know that it is wrong and saddens our Lord.
