Jesus teaches us to pray "Our Father in Heaven". Followers of Jesus, like Jesus himself, pray to the Father knowing that he's close, he cares and he's in control. God the Father is relational, he cares about individuals, and he's also in Heaven, he's in control of everything. He loves it when we pray to Him as His children.
The invitation of Psalm 131 is to approach God as a humble, calm, content, and a dependent child with his/her mother.
To learn to pray, we must understand Jesus, the Son of God's prayer life. He demonstrates utter dependence and desire to be with His Father in heaven. For those who trust in His name, he offers full and free access to God.
In light of the victory we have in Jesus, what does life now look like? Is it smooth sailing here on out, or should we expect something else? In this talk we hear of how God has equipped us for the journey ahead.
Jesus says we all have a choice to make, because we can't serve God and money at the same time. So how should we choose? Jesus tells us and shows us what it's like to live under a different kind of king.
We are driven by many reasons to do the things that we do, including how and why we live the Christian life. Today, Pastor Pre Shunmugam takes us to Jesus' words which get us to the heart of the matter.
Jesus wants us to see that His Father is good! He uses his sun and rain to create a safe space where all people can see his goodness. And this is how he wants us to treat others.
