Jesus teaches us to pray, “Our Father who art in heaven.” As the years of church history have rolled by, the church has changed “The Lord’s Prayer” into a ritual.  Jesus says that when we pray, “Our Daddy,” we’re talking to a God who enters into all of our humanness.  The Bible reveals a God who makes Himself vulnerable to us and enters into life.  That’s what a ritual, very distant kind of worship doesn’t realize. Jesus is trying to teach us throughout the entire Sermon on the Mount that it’s a relationship, it’s an intimate affection, it’s genuine, it’s authentic.  You can freely pour out your heart to God and God will respond.
