“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)

(Matthew 6:9-13) In this, the final petition of the Lord's Prayer Jesus teaches how to pray in light of the reality of evil in our world. In this sermon we look at two things specifically the come from from this petition. First that we pray knowing the reality of evil and second, we pray knowing that defeat of evil. The result of praying this final petition is that we both acknowledge the reality of evil and suffering while still having hope that Jesus has overcome and will one day completely eradicate evil.
(Matthew 6:9-15) In this fifth petition Jesus teaches us that we are both people in need of forgiveness and a people who need to offer forgiveness to others. It is by seeing ourselves as we really are and confessing that truth to God that we find forgiveness and the power to forgive.
(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.
(Matthew 6:9-13) Of all the petitions in the Lord's Prayer, this one is the most difficult to understand on the surface. What does it mean to pray for God's kingdom to come and his will to be done "on earth as it is in heaven"? In this sermon we'll ask what God's kingdom is and what it means to pray for it come here and now.
(Matthew 6:9-13) In this new series, Lord, Teach Us To Pray, we are looking at the Lord's Prayer to understand how and why we should pray as Christians. In this opening petition, "Our Father in heaven, hallowed be your name..." we find both the foundation and the power of Christian prayer: the fatherhood of God. It is in being called his children and learning what it means to call God 'father', that we begin to understand what prayer is and how we are to do it.
(Matthew 5:13-16) Jesus didn't tell his followers what to do, he told them who they are (salt and light). When we see this passage as an encouragement from Jesus rather than a burden, our mission in this world becomes a joy.
