Forgive Us Our Sins as We Forgive Those Who Sin Against Us 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 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 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.
Your Kingdom Come The Jews of Jesus’ time would understand kingdom overwhelmingly in terms of the Roman Empire. They knew kingdom to be crushing power. Jesus’ kingdom is ‘not of this world’ (Jn 18:36). Our picture of kingdom must not succumb to secular historical designs. But instead, a kingdom of sacrifice, kenotic love.
Hallowed Be Your Name 2 We will take a deeper dive into the solution to the hallowing problem we identified last week as we examine one of the most incredible moments in the life of the remarkable prophet Isaiah. What happened to him, and how did it show him everything he needed in his life? And what practical steps can we take to solve our problem too?

Hallowed Be Your Name 1 Adam Lipps:
Although we don't typically use the word "hallow" much (if ever!) in our everyday vocabulary, most of the issues we as humans face in this world can be traced directly to our failure to properly hallow. Why is this true? How exactly do we fail at it? And what should we be looking to for a possible solution?
Our Father in Heaven “Father” is an intimate term used sparely in scripture. Yet Jesus uses the address. More attention is given to the use of “our” in the salutation. This is not a private faith. This is our faith; God is our Father.
