We Have to Enter the Stillness of the Desert

02-18-2018Rev. Scott Holmer

This Sunday, Jesus is driven out into the desert by the Holy Spirit. Why the desert? It says that Jesus was among wild beasts and ministered to by angels in the desert. When we enter into the desert, when we are away from our distractions, once the temptations of Satan are quieted through prayer and fasting, we can pay attention to what is going on inside our hearts.
