The move is over and it went very well. The weather held and we are settled in and just this afternoon I found my phone and the computer was set up and ready to go once again.
I don’t have pictures yet – perhaps by the weekend.
I couldn’t sleep tonight and I was reviewing some memory verses. I wondered if you had ever spoke the words of the Lord’s Prayer in a personal way to make it stand out and alive to you?
I am not quite sure why it has been called the Lord’s Prayer. He was not praying. He was teaching the disciples “how” to pray. He was “showing ” them “how” to pray. But here it is in the personal form.
“My Father which art in heaven. Hallowed be Thy name. Thy kingdom come Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Give me this day my daily bread. Forgive me my trespasses as I have forgiven those who have trespassed again me. Lead me not into temptation, but deliver me from evil. For Thine is the kingdom, and the power and the glory forever and ever. Amen.” (Matt. 6:9-13)
This “prayer” which Jesus taught them was followed in the next two verses by telling them, “If you forgive others for their transgressions, your heavenly Father will also forgive you. But if you do not forgive others, then your Father will not forgive your transgressions”.
Jesus always taught them but He never pounded things into them. It seemed that he would merely speak the answer to them and then go on to the next item of business on His heavenly agenda with them.
Until next time then. Marge
