Angels in the Desert

February 18, 2018 ()

Bible Text: Mark 1:9-13 |


At the beginning of Lent we pay a lot of attention to the call to resist temptation and repent but Mark makes a special point of reminding us that angels were present in the wilderness ministering to Jesus as he faced those 40 days.  We have angels in our lives too.  They might not look like we imagine angels to look -- long white robes and fluttering wings but more like a middle school teacher who believed in us when we didn't believe in ourselves or a coach who let us play a sport even when we weren't so good at it.  When facing our own wilderness experience it is good to know that there are angels in our wilderness.
