Scripture Lesson:Mark 1:12-15
Preacher: Prof. Kock
Description: Reading: Mark 1:12-15 The battle which was fought by our Savior against the devil was a long and difficult one. Lent focuses on that long and difficult road he faced, and it started in the Judean Desert. The temptation of Jesus is the first open struggle against Satan fought for us. The victory is won for us! Let’s focus on Christ’s completed work in our place, his victory on our behalf. Additionally, Jesus preaches a message of repentance. This is the message we take into Lent: the battle in the desert is won! Satan and Temptation have been overcome! Repent and believe this good news! Speaker: Prof. Kock Hymns: CW 200 – “A Mighty Fortress Is Our God” Verses 1-2 CW 200 – “A Mighty Fortress Is Our God” Verses 3-4 Prayer/Day: Lord our strength, the battle of good and evil rages within and around us, and our ancient foe tempts us with his deceits and empty promises. Keep us steadfast in your Word, and when we fall, raise us up again and restore us through your Son, Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever.
