He… was subject unto [His parents] Luke 2:51
Young people, you may sometimes feel as though your parents do not understand you. Neither did Jesus’ parents understand Him. In fact, the verse before (Luke 2:50) specifically mentions “they did not understand” what Jesus was saying to them.
"Repentance and remission of sins should be preached in His name among all nations" Luke 24:47 We are to preach repentance and remission of sins. The two go hand in hand. Both repentance and forgiveness are to be preached only in His name and to be preached among all nations.
“After this manner therefore pray ye: Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name” (Matthew 6:9).
Our theme for this anniversary month is, “Give Glory to God.” All the messages this month on both the Sunday and daily programs are connected with that theme. In today’s message we are looking at the model prayer. What a blessing that we are invited to address, “our Father.” We are not speaking to one who is indifferent to our situation but to our heavenly Father who loves us.
We are to pray, “Hallowed be thy name.” Our prayer and desire should be for God’s name to be honored. If that is our desire we will avoid praying unacceptable, selfish prayers, and pray that God’s name will be glorified, that His kingdom will be expanded and that his will be done in us as earthen vessels and throughout the earth.All Sermons by Lasserre Bradley, Jr.
