The Lord’s Prayer should be known as the Disciples’ Prayer. Jesus gave it to us so we’d know how to pray!
Do you know what He emphasized more than anything else? FORGIVENESS. One line in the prayer itself in Matthew 6, but two entire sentences explaining this one element of that prayer. There’s a reason Jesus is so adamant about forgiveness. He is going to go to the cross and GIVE HIS LIFE to make it possible – so there’s no way He’s going to be happy if what we freely get from His death, we withhold from others.3 comments
