Sermon Series: 57 Words That Changed the World
Messages on the Lord’s Prayer from Matthew 6:5-15
The Lord’s Prayer informs, forms, and transforms us and the world. – Lisa Degrenia
We have no idea of how to live until we first know who God is.
So when we say that God’s name is holy, that tells us how we ought to live.
Knowing the Creator tells us where the creation is meant to move.
– Will Willimon and Stanley Hauerwas, Lord Teach Us- The Lord’s Prayer and the Christian Life
Hallow has two meanings
1) To holy-fy and honor
2) To make known, reveal
If you claim to be a child of God, a follower of the Risen Christ, live like it and pray like it.
– Lisa Degrenia
37 Then the righteous will answer him, ‘Lord, when was it that we saw you hungry and gave you food, or thirsty and gave you something to drink? 38 And when was it that we saw you a stranger and welcomed you, or naked and gave you clothing? 39 And when was it that we saw you sick or in prison and visited you?’ 40 And the king will answer them, ‘Truly I tell you, just as you did it to one of the least of these who are members of my family, you did it to me.’
Let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father in heaven.
