Synopsis: We come to the 6th petition in what is commonly called, "The Lord's Prayer." On the surface it appears to be quite simple and straightforward but upon closer examination, several challenges arise as we attempt to arrive at the meaning of this verse. What was Jesus really teaching when He gave us this verse and for what are we actually praying?
Synopsis: In this parable Jesus gave to Peter, sobering truth is given regarding the seriousness and urgency of forgiving those who hurt us. Where do we find the ability to forgive? Has someone wronged us or hurt us, offended us in such a way that it could be honestly said, the debt they owe us is greater than the debt we owe God because of our trespasses against Him?
Synopsis: Many are living under the crushing burden of financial debt--not a fun way to live. Neither is it a fun way to live to be under the crushing burden of an unwillingness to forgive those who owe you for all the pain, hardships, and suffering they have caused. In this third message expounding this 5th prayer request in "The Lord's Prayer," we look at the second of two key concepts in this verse that must be understood if we are to know exactly what it is for which we are praying when we offer this petition to God.
Synopsis: Having looked at how God defines forgiveness and illustrated the nature of it, tonight in this second message from Matthew 6:12, we look at the necessity for forgiveness. We must embrace two truths that help us understand what this fifth prayer request is communicating.
Synopsis: Tonight's message concludes the study in this 4th prayer request found in Matthew 6:11 - "Give us this day our daily bread." There are five key truths we are to be reminded of each time we offer this request to the Lord. Tonight's message deals with the last two of these five truths and concludes with a word of admonition and application.
Synopsis: Verse 11 is not only the simplest and shortest of all the requests in The Lord's Prayer, it is also very substantive in meaning. Our Lord wants to stamp five keys truths upon our hearts as we pray this request. Last week we covered one of them; tonight we cover two more. The truth here provides great hope, encouragement and comfort to those going through difficult times and look to the Lord to have their needs met.
Synopsis: Verse 11 begins a new division in the Lord's Prayer. Like the previous requests, there is more here in this shortest, simplest request than what casually meets the eye. We look tonight at the meaning of this text and then consider the first of five key truths the Lord wanted stamped upon our hearts and remembered when we pray this request.
Synopsis: Tonight we take our final look at Matthew 6:10 and the third prayer request found at the end of the verse. Tonight's message deals with the fourth kind of obedience we should render to "Our Father Who is in Heaven." Taken the little word "as," we find there is a point of comparison being made which yields rich fruit and wonderful truth that is to guide our obedience as we seek to follow God's will.
Synopsis: In part 4 of our look at this 3rd prayer request given in "The Lord's Prayer," we consider the third of four types of obedience every born-again believer ought to pray for as expresses a desire to obey the revealed will of God. Due to a covid exposure, our pastor pre-recorded this message since he was unable to deliver it "live" to our church congregation.
Synopsis: As used in Scripture, God's will can be put into two broad categories. Tonight we look at the second great arena in which God's will is to be carried out--the realm of His commandments. Here, praying this third request in the Lord's Prayer, means we express a desire for obedience. The key truth is very simple but far-reaching: every born-again child of God should pray for four kinds of obedience to the revealed will of "Our Father." Tonight's message deals with the first two responses.
Synopsis: As a continuation of last week's message, tonight we look at two veins of thought that flow out of a humble heart of trusting submission as it relates to the will of God--God's providential working in our lives.
