Compelled


Mark 1:12-15
The Temptation of Jesus
And the Spirit immediately drove him out into the wilderness. He was in the wilderness forty days, tempted by Satan; and he was with the wild beasts; and the angels waited on him.
The Beginning of the Galilean Ministry
Now after John was arrested, Jesus came to Galilee, proclaiming the good news of God, and saying, “The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God has come near; repent, and believe in the good news.”

Driven into the wilderness
Compelled  to follow the Spirit's prompting 
Driven to wrestle with temptation 
and the meaning of life
Communing with wild beasts
Waited on by angels
Newly affirmed by God
in the waters of baptism.
and forced to wait 
on the right time.
The right time 
to release the Good News
and preach repentance.
The right time 
to acknowledge
the Kingdom of God
is here.
