Day 1: Ash Wednesday: Into the wilderness

In those days Jesus came from Nazareth of Galilee and was baptised by John in the Jordan. And just as he was coming up out of the water, he saw the heavens torn apart and the Spirit descending like a dove on him. And a voice came from heaven, “You are my Son, the Beloved; with you I am well pleased.” And the Spirit immediately drove him out into the wilderness. He was in the wilderness forty days, tempted by the Accuser; and he was with the wild beasts; and the angels waited on him. (Mark 1:9-12, NRSV)
In the weeks following your baptism, what temptations did you encounter? What temptations lie before you now? Tell God about them, and ask God to help you turn away from them.
