Jesus started his ministry being tempted by Satan.
He was in a desert devoid of comforts and inhabited by dangerous beasts.
A hostile world turned away from God by the stain of original sin.
But He prevailed.
He modeled for us how we are to respond to temptation and pain.
He taught us that by proclaiming His word to further the Kingdom.
It is a mission to be pursued despite the trails that accompany it.
Lent can fortify you for your mission.
Will you make use of this opportunity?
