Our teaching series “Finding Freedom” continues this weekend as we discover keys to freedom in the framework of the Lord’s Prayer. It is found in Matthew 6:9 and Luke 11:2 with words so simple a child can learn it yet so sophisticated and rich in meaning it can fuel a lifetime of reflective study. While this template for conversing with God was not taught by Jesus to become rote repetition, committing it to memory and reciting it together unifies us as disciples of Christ. I’d also like to share a 7 day devotional “The Lord’s Prayer Revisited” with you using the YouVersion Bible App www.youversion.com/apps You can install it on your smartphone, tablet or computer. It lets us track together, share response and can be used in multiple languages. Let’s pray through and study together these important words of Jesus!Discipleship involves leading an examined life.
Search me, God, and know my heart; test me and know my anxious thoughts. See if there is any offensive way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting. – Psalm 139:23-24.
It is easy to become comfortable with who we are, but living an examined life invites God to reveal issues He wants to address so we can grow and further reflect the character and life of Christ.
Freedom Session encourages us to look honestly at how we deal with the challenges and troubles in life. It asks us to take look into our past experiences, our strengths and our weaknesses, and challenges us to replace character defects with the character of God.
