Wrath: Rock Bottom

“Furthermore, since they did not think it worthwhile to retain the knowledge of God, he gave them over to a depraved mind, to do what ought not to be done.

Wrath: Degrading

“Therefore God gave them over in the sinful desires of their hearts to sexual impurity for the degrading of their bodies with one another.” (Romans 1:24) Are you following the progression in Romans 1 this week? 1) God is knowable from creation. 2) People willfully ignore him as Creator: no worship, no thanks. 3) Their […]

Wrath: Suppressing the Truth

“The wrath of God is being revealed from heaven against all the godlessness and wickedness of men who suppress the truth by their wickedness, since what may be known about God is plain to them, because God has made it plain to them.” (Romans 1:18-19) In Romans 1:18-32, Paul describes why God gets so angry […]

The Lord’s Prayer: Temptation

“And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from the evil one.” (Matthew 6:13) Jesus ends his famous “disciple’s prayer” with a model request for deliverance from temptation and the enemy.

The Lord’s Prayer: Debt

“Forgive us our debts, as we also have forgiven our debtors. . . . For if you forgive men when they sin against you, your heavenly Father will also forgive you. But if you do not forgive men their sins, your Father will not forgive your sins.” (Matthew 6:12, 14-15) This line from Jesus’ model […]

The Lord’s Prayer: One Day’s Food

“Give us today our daily bread.” (Matthew 6:11) In spite of what all those TV preachers want to tell us, Jesus’ answer to the disciples’ question “how should we pray?” did not include naming or claiming one single XBox or SUV or even a nice steak. “Please give me enough food for today.” That’s the […]
