SUN 01-MAR-2020 - 11.00 AM Sermon
Rev Sandy Boyce
Lent 1 – Following his baptism, Jesus was led by the Spirit into the desert for an extended period, during which he was subjected to a series of temptations that suggested that his mission to the world could be made much more spectacular if he were to use his God-given powers to better advantage. He resisted the temptations. During his subsequent three year mission, Jesus often went away to isolated, quiet places like hillsides and deserts after a busy time of interacting with people; it made space in his life to commune with God and grow in grace. By following his example of quietly retreating from the world from time to time to be with God, we too might return into the world to reflect more of God's loving kindness to humanity.
Genesis 2: 15-17, 3: 1-7; Matthew 4: 1-11
