Tomorrow’s sermon will focus on Christ’s teachings within the Lord’s Prayer. It is interesting that this relatively brief prayer has been memorized and recited by Christian’s for almost two thousand years, and yet the truths that were taught have been almost entirely ignored in the modern church.
Within the simple prayer one can see submission, provision, protection, sovereignty, and power. Truly each believer should learn to recognize these truths, and then apply them to his daily life. There is no substitute for surrender and dependence within the Christian life, yet we often forfeit those elements in order to focus on our own selfish desires. As we focus on His prayer, we should also learn to focus on His will.
