The Kingdom of God was central to the life and teaching of Christ. So He instructs us to pray “Your kingdom come.” Learn what it means to live and long for God’s “Kingdom of Grace” to advance and His “Kingdom of Glory” to arrive.
As we continue our exposition through the Lord’s Prayer, we are taught to pray Hallowed be Your name. What does the name of God refer to? What does it mean for God’s name to be hallowed? How can we hallow God’s name in our lives? Why should we pray this way? And why is this petition first in the Lord’s Prayer?
Prayer is perhaps the most vital part of the Christian life. It is essential to worship God, love others, and grow in the grace and knowledge of Christ. In the opening address of the Lord’s Prayer, Jesus teaches us how to really approach God in prayer and speak to Him as our Heavenly Father.
