1st Sunday of Lent
March 9, 2003
Reading I: Genesis 9:8-15 II: 1Peter 3:18-22
Mark 1:12-15

12 At once the Spirit drove him out into the desert,
13 and he remained in the desert for forty days, tempted by Satan. He was among wild beasts, and the angels ministered to him.
14 After John had been arrested, Jesus came to Galilee proclaiming the gospel of God:
15 "This is the time of fulfillment. The kingdom of God is at hand. Repent, and believe in the gospel."

Interesting Details
One Main Point

Jesus began his ministry with the message that the very power of God is available to those who open themselves to Jesus and to His gospel and His way of loving service.

  1. What Gospel, or good news, do I hear in Jesus' message?
  2. When we are engrossed in our ministries, do we spend the time to sanctify ourselves?
  3. What are the temptations in my daily life, and where do I sin?
  4. What do I need to do to "repent" and be free of my sins?
  5. In daily temptations, do I recognize aid from the Holy Spirit?
