‘Our Father which art in heaven’ reveals a God who is not only a loving Heavenly Father but He’s there in heaven. He’s sovereign. He’s in control of this universe. He’s the God of might, the God of majesty, the God of power. Today, part 1 of Praying Jesus’s Way.
If there was ever a time to prepare for the coming of Jesus and to be sure our hearts are right with Jesus, it is now. All of heaven is astir and this is the time to be on our knees, this is the time to open our hearts, this is the time to be ready.
The God of hope wants to fill you with joy. That’s an inner sense of happiness, abundance and fullness in your life. It’s peace, and an inner sense of contentment. God is a God of hope, no matter what we’re going through, that hope always brings joy.
When you’re going forward, you don’t want to go in reverse. In the Garden of Eden God created Adam and Eve to move forward in a positive relationship with Him, where His presence would be manifest in the garden. But Satan came with what is referred to as the “great reversal.” The theme in the book of Genisis is life, the wages of sin is death. Today understanding the 7 principles of life from Genesis to live an abundant, happy, and joyous life.
When Christ touches us with healing grace, He touches us for a purpose. Not only so that we will be redeemed, but by His grace and power we will go out and touch others with the healing grace of Christ.

All the kingdoms of this world have fallen, they’ve gone down. But the eternal kingdom of Christ will last forever. And at that marriage supper of the lamb the Father steps forth, places the crown on Jesus’ head and we see that great moment when Jesus is crowned Lord of all.
Jesus, our heavenly husband, left the glories and splendor of eternity, entering into this rebellious world. On the cross of calvary He paid the dowry, shed His blood for you and me. The passion of His soul is to return and take His bride home. There’s nothing more important for Jesus than to come and take His bride to the place He’s been preparing for us.
What is cheap grace? The term, coined by Dietrich Bonhoeffer, is the topic at hand today. Described as “humanism clothed in religious garments” Pastor Mark teaches of the travesty of cheap grace. Cheap grace, he says, means the justification of sin without the justification of the sinner.
Seeking God’s providences simply means carefully observing prayerfully the doors God is opening in any given situation and walking through them. There are times we don’t know the providences of God until later and we look back on the experiences and see that God is working in our lives.
