“A clean heart create for me, God;
renew within me a steadfast spirit.” (Psalm 51:12)
Before entering the desert, the Holy Spirit descended upon Jesus. Therefore, during his Lent, Jesus was not alone; the love of God was in his heart, which Jesus kept cleaned and willing through humility, prayer, and fasting.
The good news for us is that during our baptism, the Holy Spirit descended upon us too. We are not alone during our Lenten journey. Let us seek to be humble, prayerful, and abstinent as well.
O God, I desire a clean and willing heart today and always. May the Holy Spirit sustain me.
Peace and Goodness
