1/07/19 Matthew 6:1-24; Psalm 7:1-17; & Proverbs 2:1-5
Matthew 6: 9 “This, then, is how you should pray:
“‘Our Father in heaven,
hallowed be your name,
10 your kingdom come,
your will be done,
on earth as it is in heaven.
11 Give us today our daily bread.
12 And forgive us our debts,
as we also have forgiven our debtors.
13 And lead us not into temptation,
but deliver us from the evil one.
In Jesus day the Lord was spoken to using words such as the “Creator,” the “Almighty.” He is these things but we hear Jesus teach that He is also a loving father, “knowing what we need even before we ask Him (v.8.)”
Coffman writes: “God is man’s Father because he created him, sustains him, and provides all that man needs.”
