Driven by the Spirit

Driven by the Spirit

Sermon Introduction –

In our gospel reading for this Sunday, Jesus is driven into the desert by the Holy Spirit. Has there ever been a time when it feels like the Holy Spirit is challenging you? How can we accept this call?

Introduction to this week’s readings

On Ash Wednesday the church began its journey toward baptismal immersion in the death and resurrection of Christ. This year, the Sundays in Lent lead us to focus on five covenants God makes in the Hebrew Scriptures and to use them as lenses through which to view baptism. First Peter connects the way God saved Noah’s family in the flood with the way God saves us through the water of baptism. The baptismal covenant is made with us individually, but the new life we are given in baptism is for the sake of the whole world.
