Dear Friend in the Lord,

Faith – Testing: In today’s Gospel, after Jesus’ Baptism, He went into the desert for forty days “to prepare” Himself for His Public ministry. There, His faith was tempted and tested by Satan.  Is it true for you that, “When God allowed your faith to be tempted and tested, He also strengthened your faith for Him?”

Fr Philip Heng, S.J.

Mark 1:12-15

The Spirit drove Jesus out into the wilderness and he remained there for forty days, and was tempted by Satan. He was with the wild beasts, and the angels looked after him.

After John had been arrested, Jesus went into Galilee. There he proclaimed the Good News from God. ‘The time has come’ he said, ‘and the kingdom of God is close at hand. Repent, and believe the Good News.’
