There might be nothing more fundamental to the Christian faith then praying the Lord's prayer. We looked at this deep but practical teaching last Sunday. Do we include the Lord's prayer enough in our personal devotional time, and when praying together? If you've not had a chance yet, please go to the YouTube channel and watch or listen to the sermon. Let's make sure we put Jesus' teaching on prayer into practice this week.
Yesterday the men met to consider the next part of Luke's Gospel. The weather was kind and we enjoyed singing, praying and discussing Luke 11.14-28 on the grass in Cassiobury Park. The women will look at the same passage next Wednesday.
This coming Sunday we will be talking about Jonah, Nineveh, the Queen of the South, Solomon and "something greater ". Here is the passage:
Luke 11:29 As the crowds increased, Jesus said, “This is a wicked generation. It asks for a sign, but none will be given it except the sign of Jonah.
Luke 11:30 For as Jonah was a sign to the Ninevites, so also will the Son of Man be to this generation.
Luke 11:31 The Queen of the South will rise at the judgment with the people of this generation and condemn them, for she came from the ends of the earth to listen to Solomon’s wisdom; and now something greater than Solomon is here.
Luke 11:32 The men of Nineveh will stand up at the judgment with this generation and condemn it, for they repented at the preaching of Jonah; and now something greater than Jonah is here.
