(Matthew 6:9-13) In this fourth petition Jesus teaches his disciples that the fundamental posture of the Christian life is one of humility. Though we live in a world that tells us otherwise, the gospel tells us that we are unable to provide for ourselves. We are by nature dependent beings. The paradox of the gospel, however, is that the more we confess our need, the more we are given eyes to see the God who has promised to provide for all our needs in Jesus Christ. Thus turning us from anxious, fear driven people into a people of abundance and thankfulness.
“How then will they call on him in whom they have not believed? And how are they to believe in him of whom they have never heard? And how are they to hear without someone preaching? And how are they to preach unless they are sent? As it is written, “How beautiful are the feet of those who preach the good news!”” (Romans 10:14–15)
