“I have shown you many good works from the Father. For which of these do you stone me?”
“In resistance persons live most humanly.”
Lent involves resistance. We resist the engulfing gloom of the desert and the temptation to turn back, give up or give in. If our path provokes no criticism, if there is no danger of being hit by stones meant for Jesus, we may not be following him closely enough. Easter is coming! Resurrection life is around the corner. It’s not to late to join the Jesus revolution!
