LENT: With Christ In The Desert

With Christ in the Desert:

Moses and the people were in desert places yet God sustained them with manna, a foreshadow of The Bread of Life. Elijah, as a prophet also foreshadowed Christ and God sustained his servant by sending ravens with food to feed him. The Lord may allow us to travel through desert places but as David said “Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death I will fear no evil.” Jesus taught us to pray “Give us today our daily bread… and deliver us from evil…” Even in the desert God sustains.

Into The Desert With Christ

Solidarity with Christ is not my “achievement,” I must let Him draw me in to himself, lose myself in him, give up all that is my own in exchange for all that is his, and all that he has done that I could never do for myself… The only place to find myself is to abandon the search and  follow Christ into the desert.
