If you have attended many worship services, you’ve heard, and probably participated in saying, “The Lord’s Prayer”. It was the prayer Jesus instructed his followers to say. His intent has possibly been missed by many. “Give us this day our daily bread” does not mean ‘feed us for free’. “Forgive us our debts” does not mean ‘pay for our mistakes.’ “Thy Kingdom come on earth as it is in Heaven” does not mean ‘there will be Heaven on Earth’. Not yet. That has to come about after Jesus returns and totally defeats the evil of mankind. The Sinister Minister continues to reign in the hearts of men, even believing men and women continue to sin. That sin dooms the earth as we know it. Our only Hope is the acceptance of the Greatest Gift God Gave “His Children”. To be “His People”, we must believe in His Son. We must confess our sin and repent. We must spend time in daily conversation with a Holy God. We must or we will miss out, Period!
“May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.”
And, that’s what I get from MY box of chocolates. AMEN
