How much more must we be!
I really appreciate and am challenged by F.B. Meyer's comments on Mark 1:9-20. I pray that it will a source of encouragement to you as you continue to follow Jesus this day.
If the Lord was thus anointed ere he commenced his life-work, how much more must we be! Hast thou become united with him in his death, made one with him in his resurrection, and anointed by that same Spirit? Then be sure that thou, too, must be tempted. Sons of men must go the way of the Son of man, now under the opened heavens, then tempted of the devil; on one side the wild beasts, on the other the angels; now driven to loneliness, and then to the crowded street of the cities, there to gather disciples by the energy and beauty of a victorious life.
