Jesus gave the church a model prayer to teach us how to pray. The Lord’s Prayer isn’t just six petitions we should repeat vainly, but instead teaches us something about the proper perspectives or postures in prayer. This Sunday we’ll consider how we, individually and corporately, can faithfully respond to Jesus’ call to pray.
Continuing our series Just the Essentials, we turn to consider the role of Scripture in the life of the believer. Paul’s second letter to Timothy reminds us why we keep the Bible at the center of our corporate and personal spiritual lives, allowing it to inform, nourish, and make demands of us. This letter also gives us a tremendous model to follow, a model of passing on a love and respect for Scripture to the next generations.
