Forgive Us Our Sins as We Forgive Those Who Sin Against Us

Forgive Us Our Sins as We Forgive Those Who Sin Against Us

June 19, 2022

The grandest mistake any Christian can make is to assume God is a mild helper. Instead we are totally depraved. We have no hope of saving ourselves. Our world has no hope of virtue. While we have immense worth to God, we have zero merit. “If we say we have no sin we are liars” (1 Jn 1:10). Worth is not conveyed by works or merit. Worth is conveyed by ownership. I have some collectibles. Their worth is only in the perception of the owner, not necessarily others (such as buyers who think it is worth less – perhaps more!). The beauty of this mindset and theology is found in peace of knowing we do not need perform. Generosity no longer gains us any favor. Generosity now comes out of the ability to “lie down in green pastures” because our Shepherd is Good.

Give Us Today Our Daily Bread

Give Us Today Our Daily Bread

May 29, 2022

While this petition starts with the most basic need of humanity, food, it must quickly be seen for its dependence upon God. One view says we do not need God for our daily bread/life. To pray this prayer is to subjugate the self will, and submit to God’s provision. It is an issue of Ownership.

Your Will Be Done as in Heaven

Your Will Be Done as in Heaven

May 22, 2022

The entire Lord’s prayer is a series of petitions. These petitions are set against our reality. In heaven there is no suffering, no crucifixion, no beatings, no mockery, no power struggle. God is immanent. But for the kingdom to be on earth there will be beatings and power struggles. The price is high. And few are willing to pay the price.
