The Lord's Prayer - Your Kingdom on Earth
The Lord's Prayer - Your Kingdom on Earth.
(March 2013 - Week 2)
(1). Matthew 6:10 your kingdom come, your will be done, on earth as it
is in heaven.
(2). Psalm 145:10-13 All your works praise you, LORD; your faithful
people extol you. 11 They tell of the glory of your kingdom and speak
of your might, 12 so that all people may know of your mighty acts and
the glorious splendor of your kingdom. 13 Your kingdom is an everlasting
kingdom, and your dominion endures through all generations. The LORD
is trustworthy in all he promises and faithful in all he does.
(3). Luke 12:30-31 But seek his kingdom, and these things will be given to
you as well. 32 "Do not be afraid, little flock, for your Father has been
pleased to give you the kingdom.
(4). “Christ makes Heaven the standard for God's will to be done on Earth.
What a high ideal is this! What power it would take to bring such a thing
about! Nothing short of the Kingdom of God pulling down strongholds,
overthrowing bastions of deeply entrenched sin, and then conquering this
present world in such a way as to establish righteousness – nothing short
of such things as these can meet the standard that Christ sets before
us.” [Geoff Bannister]
(5). Prayer Thought: God is willing to do his work according to his standard
in heaven, not ours from the earth. Our desire is to pray for his kingdom
and will on earth, not man's nor ours.
