So, as many of you know one of my 55 in 55 is to read the entire Bible again this year... and its very good to be able to reread or listen and really think about the differnt things packed in this book... Its the story of Jesu, its hte stories of his earthly walk... this total man/ total God... his temptaions, his faith, his compassion, his ability to discern by following the direction of the Holy Spirit in him!
I think once again while reading and seeing the miracles, his words and teachings, I am amazed at how obvious it was/is that the Messiah had come... and yet... they mocked him, they wanted free handouts, they wanted magician acts and entertainment...
That's how many are today, they want the show... not giving heed to the words or THE WORD, but wanting the constant signs of proof that the Messiah has come..
But the book also shows his GRACE, and I think about that when I myself am guilty of shopping list prayers of my wants and pouts, and like God needs my help , my opinions..
But we are told our prayers should be like this: ( who better then the Word made Flesh to learn from)
9“Pray, then, in this way:
‘Our Father who is in heaven,
Hallowed be Your name.
10‘Your kingdom come.
Your will be done,
On earth as it is in heaven.
11‘Give us this day our daily bread.
12‘And forgive us our debts, as we also have forgiven our debtors.
13‘And do not lead us into temptation, but deliver us from evil. [For Yours is the kingdom and the power and the glory forever. Amen.’
My your prayers be heard.... all day long
