This sermon was based on Matthew 6:9-13
The Lord’s Prayer
9Pray then like this:
“Our Father in heaven,
hallowed be your name.
10 Your kingdom come,
your will be done,
on earth as it is in heaven.
11 Give us this day our daily bread,
12 and forgive us our debts,
as we also have forgiven our debtors.
13 And lead us not into temptation,
but deliver us from evil.
“Acquisition of goods and services in ever-increasing amounts (wiki.)”
vs. every day living and leaning on the sovereignty of God
God as Provider
Jehovah-Jireh – God will provide
Implications For Our Future
One of two ways
- Debt – selling our future
- Hoarding – buying our future
A constant reliance
- For Our Lives – Freedom to do what we are called to do – living by Faith
- For Our Prayer – Don’t look to stuff for what only God provides
So they said to him, “Then what sign do you do, that we may see and believe you? What work do you perform? Our fathers ate the manna in the wilderness; as it is written, ‘He gave them bread from heaven to eat.’” Jesus then said to them, “Truly, truly, I say to you, it was not Moses who gave you the bread from heaven, but my Father gives you the true bread from heaven. For the bread of God is he who comes down from heaven and gives life to the world.” They said to him, “Sir, give us this bread always.”
