From the wilderness
“John grew up and became strong in spirit. And he lived in the wilderness until he began his public ministry to Israel.”
Luke 1:80 NLT
Many times, to fulfill the task entrusted to us, Jesus will move us from the wilderness to the public life.
In the solitude of the desert undoubtedly we will have less problems and only will fight with ourselves. In public life, many eyes will be upon us and many people will want to impose us what to do, or even we could be rejected.
In solitude our impact and influence will be minimal; in public life we can develop the potential that God has given us, and bless many people and ministries.
Where do you want to meet your mission? In the desert or in public life?
