Famished

 

Readings for 1st Sunday in Lent

 

Genesis 2:15-17; 3:1-7, Romans 5:12-19; and Matthew 4: 1-11

Thursday 2 March

We are told that Jesus was ‘famished’ after his time alone in the wilderness. Have you ever been ‘famished’ and I don’t mean hungry for a meal.

The account of Jesus in the wilderness is fundamentally about Jesus’ lack of relationship, with other people and with God.

Jesus is then tempted to self sufficiency and testing of his Father’s  love and care. Lent for me is being hungry enough to seek God, to seek forgiveness and through small steps of seeking realise the Father’s love and care.

Prayer: O most approachable Father, through my thoughts, my prayers and study of Jesus and his guidance may I grow ever closer to your love and care in this world. Amen
