March 20th News: “Lead Us Not Into Temptation…”

Series: The Lord’s Prayer.

And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil

We all are faced with temptation. And, really, temptation isn’t the problem– it is giving into to temptation.

Where does temptation come from? Why does Jesus tells us to pray that God won’t lead us into it? How can we be sure that he can deliver us when we do fall prey to temptation?

These are all good questions that we will be pondering this Sunday. We we look at how Jesus responded to temptation and there find the answers we are looking for.

To prepare, read Matthew 4:1-11; Hebrews 4:14-16; James 1:13-15; and 1 Corinthians 10:13.

Looking forward to Sunday!

 

Grace and peace,

Doug

Series: The Lord’s Prayer.

Forgive Us Our Trespasses As We Forgive Those Who Trespass Against Us

This week we continue to look at forgiveness– God’s towards us and us towards others. Last week we looked at the story of David. This week, we will look at another well know person from Scripture- the apostle Peter.

We know a lot about Peter. He had ups and downs (just like us). He moves quickly from great faith to great fear (just like us). He spends a lifetime learning about forgiveness (just like us).

We are going to be talking about a lot of stories about Peter this week… To prepare you an read Matthew 26:31-35; Luke 22:54-62; John 21:1-19.

Also, THIS SATURDAY NIGHT WE SPRING FORWARD!!!!! Move your clocks AHEAD 1 HOUR BEFORE YOU GO TO BED.

Looking forward to Sunday!

 

Grace and peace,

Doug

March 6th News: “Forgive Us Our Trespasses…”

Series: The Lord’s Prayer.

Forgive Us Our Trespasses

Jesus makes it clear in the Lord’s prayer that we desperately need God. We need his provision (daily bread) and our loving Father generously provides. This Sunday we see that we also need his pardon (forgiveness) on a regular basis. Our loving Father generously pardons as well.

That can be easy to understand in our head (intellectually), but very difficult to understand in our heart (emotionally). But we must. That’s why Jesus includes the phrase, “And forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us” in his model for prayer.

How are you doing in the area of forgiving others? How are you doing in the area of being forgiven by God. They are intimately related– and Jesus give us the order for true forgiveness to happen.

To prepare, read 2 Samuel 11 and 12. This is the story of a great man of God who learns about forgiveness in a way that changes him forever.

We will also celebrate the Lord’s Supper together this Sunday.

Looking forward to Sunday!

 

Grace and peace,

Doug
