A few weeks ago I was in the Holy Land and I wondered what I had been expecting on that journey and in that place?
Who would I meet? What would I say? What did I need to take?
I am not sure now what I expected, or had I set out on this journey with the hope that I would merely enjoy it and be pleased that I had made the effort?
And as we start Lent our readings for are about temptation, fasting, God’s promise to Noah, and Jesus resurrection.
Temptation – believing that I have got it all right
Fasting – spending time by suffering in some way
God’s Promise – He will be with us
Jesus Resurrection – Beyond all this that we see and meet Jesus died and was resurrected that we may have that eternal life.
In the Holy Land these aspects were all met and I found that they became alive for me. And who did I meet, what could I say and what did I need to take?
