Prayer

Onwards and Upwards! – Introducing the Spiritual Disciples – Prayer

“Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles. And let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us, fixing our eyes on Jesus, the pioneer and perfecter of our faith.” Hebrews 12:1-2 Just as athletes…

Yours is the Kingdom, the Power and the Glory

It may come as a surprise to find that most modern translations (e.g. NIV, NLT, ESV) do not include the last line of the Lord’s Prayer in Matthew’s Gospel. Most scholars now think that it wasn’t in the original manuscript. Whether you agree with this or not we certainly ought to concur that the concluding…

Lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from the evil one

It’s been a while since we last looked at the Lord’s Prayer together. We’ve honoured God, asked him to meet our physical/material needs and then turned, lastly, to our spiritual need in asking for forgiveness. If our last petition dealt with sins committed in the past, today’s petition looks forward to the dangers that lie…

The Hunt for Happiness and Hope…

I’m anticipating a lot of smiles on Sunday as we gather together in the Church building for the first service in a long time (even if said smiles are hidden under facemasks!). As a young boy, I always went to Church on Easter Sunday with a smile on my face. I knew there was a…

Sunday 4th April 2021 – Resurrection Sunday in Airdrie

But God raised Him from the dead, putting an end to the agony of death, since it was impossible for Him to be held in its power. Acts 2:24 This coming Sunday we look forward to hosting two separate Communion services as we remember our Saviour together while observing current Government guidelines. The first will…

“Forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors.”

Both parts of this petition can be difficult for us to understand. Forgive us our debts.. Firstly, why must Christians keep on praying ‘forgive us our debts’? Weren’t we forgiven when we first came to Christ? Why keep asking for forgiveness? Can’t we just pray the ‘sinners prayer’ get forgiven and get on with our…

Bread of life

Give us this day our Daily Bread

As we’ve noted already, the Lord’s Prayer (like the 10 Commandments) begins with God; his holiness, his kingdom, his worth. Then about halfway through the prayer, we come to our needs praying “give us this day, our daily bread.” Some (who have the luxury of taking food for granted) have struggled with this transition between…

Thy Will be Done

As we come to the third petition of the Lord’s prayer, we might ask a simple question. Why would we want to pray “Thy will be done”? Isn’t prayer asking for what we want? Why pray “thy will be done” and not “my will be done”? There is much we could say in response to…
