The Kingdom, the Power and the Glory are radically different in Caesar and Jesus because Caesar establishes his power by killing while Jesus establishes his power by dying and rising from the dead. Caesar’s number one threat, Death, loses its power when confronted by a King who cannot be killed again. Our message on the conclusion of the Lord's Prayer.
Jesus teaches us to pray "Deliver us from evil." When we ask God to deliver us from evil we need to know 3 things: He has. He does. He will. Our message on the seventh petition of the Lord's Prayer.
Jesus teaches us to pray “Lead us not into temptation.” While God never tempts us, we’re constantly barraged by the Devil, the world, and our own flesh. How often do we feel betrayed by the thing we wanted because it didn't work out? Our message on the sixth petition of the Lord’s Prayer.
We ask Jesus, “teach us to pray,” and he does. But many of us have two big problems with Him telling us to pray for forgiveness and to forgive others. Forgiveness wouldn’t be so hard if we didn’t have to ask for forgiveness. Forgiveness wouldn’t be so hard if we didn’t have to forgive other people. Our message on the fifth petition of the Lord’s Prayer.
Jesus teaches us to pray "give us this day our daily bread." He provides the things we need now and the forgiveness we need forever. Our message on the fourth petition of The Lord's Prayer.
Jesus teaches us to pray, "Thy Will Be Done" but how do we respond to God's will and what does it mean that His will is done in our lives? Our fifth message on the Lord's Prayer.
In the Lord’s Prayer, Jesus teaches us to pray, “Thy Kingdom Come” and to see Creation as God sees Creation. God invites all people into His kingdom through the death and resurrection of His Son, Jesus. He invites all people to pray as believers in His promise.
In the Lord’s Prayer, Jesus teaches us to pray, “Hallowed Be Thy Name.” How does God’s name become holy among us? When both our teaching and our life are godly and Christian (Large Catechism). He makes His name holy by giving us His Name and making us Holy. Our message on the first petition of the Lord's Prayer.
God tells us He’s our Father. He shows us He’s our Father. He rescues us as our Father. He provides for us as our Father. He asks us to pray to Him, “Our Father.” Our second sermon in the series on the Lord’s Prayer: “Teach Us to Pray.”
"Lord, teach us to pray," the disciples asked. Jesus teaches them and us how to pray in the words of The Lord's Prayer. The first message in our sermon series "Teach Us to Pray".
