Readings for 1st Sunday in Lent
Genesis 2:15-17; 3:1-7, Romans 5:12-19; and Matthew 4: 1-11
Saturday 4 March
The fruit of the knowledge of good and evil is the myth that explains how and why humanity knows and recognises right and wrong, why we have a conscience. Jesus in the wilderness, his chief defence against temptation was this conscious understanding. Jesus’ centre was on God His father, all his answers were God-centric and beyond His own needs and desires.
Question: What will you offer tomorrow in worship, what will you give away or give up that is not God centred?
Prayer : Father, I offer to you the things that call upon me that are not of you. Forgive my false focus , help me to follow Jesus in His wilderness experiences. Amen
