The gospel of Mark says that the Spirit drove Jesus out into the desert after his baptism. Jesus was tempted for 40 days and his identity and calling were put to the test. In a similar way, disciples often undergo times of testing in the wilderness where God wants to shape our character and strengthen our trust in him. In Welcome to the Wilderness (1 of 6), Pastor David invites us to discover an authentic faith while living in a dry and barren wasteland.
