The Lord's Prayer



Our Father which art in Heaven Hallowed be thy name
 

Did you know most people who come to say these words actually don't have God as their Father. That they have no relationship with Him. They have never been born again, being born of the Holy Spirit, in response to the message of the cross of our Lord Jesus They only say these words because they were taught to and now formulate these words according to their actual nature.

They actually never trusted to make a choice based off of Gods word on their condition of being lost but rather trusted what they were taught from their church in regard to their salvation as if their church has more power than the word of God which is totally false.

These words that I have written would you think me unfair to have written them, that I am judging people?

The Lord Jesus actually said the same thing to other people who said the same claiming God as their Father. They trusted in themselves of what their church taught, their nature was dead to the things of God. They knew not the Lord Jesus Christ.

We read in John 8:41-44

Jesus said,
"Ye do the deeds of your father." Then said they to him. We be not born of fornication; we have one Father, even God.

Jesus said unto them, "If God were your Father, ye would love me: for I proceeded forth and came from God; neither came I myself, but he sent me. Why do ye not understand my speech? even because ye cannot hear my word.
 Ye are of your father the devil, and the lust of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it."

Notice Jesus said "ye would love me" not a church or a tradition but love Him is what the word of God says. Do you love what the Word of God says or do you love what your church says?

Baptism cannot save you. Good works cannot save you. Your church cannot save you.

Only your response to what God says in his word can save you.

Are you born again by what God shares in his word?

Jesus said, "Unless a man be born again he cannot enter the Kingdom of God" (John 3:3)

Is the place where you meet Him is it in your heart growing from His word or from a church that cannot read your heart? 

Thy kingdom come thy will be done on Earth as it is in Heaven.

What do you think Gods will is for your life?

For you to be conformed to the image of His Son the Lord Jesus Christ.

Teaching you to trust Him in your life experiences by the power of His Spirit to grow up in your relationship with Him.

This is our confidence that we have in him, that, if we ask any thing according to His will, he hears us: and if we know that he hears us, whatsoever we ask, we know we have the petitions that we desired of him. (1John 5:14)

Did you know that?

This can only happen if you had a spiritual rebirth in response to the gospel.

Do you know what the gospel really is? 

Give us this day our daily bread. 

God's word is the source of all revelation.

All of Gods heavenly treasure is available to us as we are to seek it daily in our relational walk with Him. Seek ye first the kingdom of God and his righteousness and all these things shall be added unto you. (Mat 6:33)
In reading His word everyday your relationship with Him in this life will begin to grow more and more.

And forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us. 

Many people forgive others in their own strength and not in the love or the command in His strength the Lord has for us in forgiving others. This is why one may think he or she need see someone else in order to be forgiven without going first to the Lord in any given situation, because they are trying to find resolve in their own strength in believing only the church can forgive their sins. One can find comfort from God in knowing Jesus can and will forgive you if you ask him to. This is between you and him and no other , other than one pointing the way to you towards the Lord Jesus Christ.

And lead us not into temptation but deliver us from evil Amen. 

A parent wants so much in love to lead their child away from evil knowing many choices will be presented that they may choose from. They know that choices to do wrong is stronger than the choices to do right and with instruction and discipline try to keep the child from falling into sin humanly speaking.

Do you think, spiritually speaking, God would want any less for his adopted children.
By His Holy Spirit one will be led in accordance with His word the relationship experience in everyday life. Again this can only happen if one has responded to the gospel.
