Jesus uses simple yet all-encompassing phrases to describe the person he addresses in prayer. Read the Lord’s Prayer in Matthew 6:9-13 and ponder the four phrases “Our Father”, “in heaven”, “hallowed be”, “your name”. What stands out to you?
- Get Honest … What is your current view of God? How do you normally address the God of the Universe? Make a list of the names or ways you tend to approach God in recent days and notice how your words may be heard from God’s heavenly perspective.
- Change Mind … Listen for what Jesus wants to say to you about your view of God’s character.
- Walk Anew … What step might Jesus want you to take in response to what he’s shown you?
FORMATION CHALLENGE … Find a viewpoint where you can worship God’s grandness and find something small to worship God’s nearness
