Matthew 4:1 NIV
Then Jesus was led by the Spirit into the wilderness to be tempted by the devil.

The Gospels don’t often refer to the way the Spirit and Jesus related to each other, but what this set of stories at the start of his public ministry makes clear is that Jesus was open to the Spirit guiding his actions, and if Jesus needed the Spirit’s help to follow his Father’s will, how much more so do we!

Spirit, open my eyes, ears, mind and heart to your leading today.
