February 22, 2015 – Sermon Notes
Prayer is something that we consistently see in the life of Christ. Throughout the gospels, Jesus often retreats to pray. We see Jesus praying for others, thanking God, and even praying for himself.
So, if prayer is an important aspect of Christ’s life, it should be an important part of our lives. The disciples had seen Jesus pray many times and wanted it to be a priority of their lives.
Jesus was saying to the Pharisees, I am the kingdom of God. I am here. It Is Me.
When Jesus teaches the disciples to pray “your kingdom come”, He is saying allow the Holy Spirit to work in you and through you. I will not be here physically on earth after my resurrection, but the kingdom of God is here, living in you, the church.
Too often, it’s our kingdom that reigns in our lives, not God’s.
God’s Kingdom isn’t about our preferences, it’s about His Purposes.
We must live for His Kingdom, not our comfort.
