Jesus commands us to pray, Your kingdom come. This petition means: 1. rule over us by Your Word and Spirit 2. preserve and increase Your Church 3. destroy ever power that raises itself against You 4. do all thisâ€¦until the fullness of your kingdom comes
Questions to think about during the sermon: Point 1: 1. How does God discipline us? 2. What is the outcome of that discipline? 3. What must we do before God can rule over us by His Word and Spirit? Point 2: 4. How did Jesus become our King? 5. If Jesus is our King, then who is our worst enemy? Point 3: 6. Is Your Kingdom Come a prayer for God to destroy (ungodly) governments in Ottawa and Victoria as â€śpowers that raise themselves against Godâ€ť? Point 4: 7. If we pray for Godâ€™s kingdom to come, who is in control now?
