Passage: Luke 4:1-13
Sunday, March 6, 2022
Rev Will White preached on “An Opportune Time” from the series “Gathered up in Jesus” based on Luke 4:1-13.
March 6, 2022 is the First Sunday in Lent.
We play a little bit with Luke’s words in verse 13, how the adversary left him “until an opportune time.” You could look at this from two directions. It could be those “opportune times” for temptation, when we are in the midst of struggle or questioning and find ourselves vulnerable to stray from our journey.
Gathered Up in Jesus
The season of Lent is essential for those who truly seek to be disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world. Because a part of what we learn in this time of self-examination is that we are what might be most in need of transformation. We might find that what might need to grow in faith and discipleship is the church and that the transformation of the world begins with building bridges and gathering up rather than with condemnation. We hope you’ll join in with churches around the world as we seek to be gathered up in Jesus.
