Luke 11: The Model Prayer

Published

on

Teach us to pray. Jews at an early age learn the Scriptures, Jewish rituals and prayers taught y their parents and elders. However, the disciples realized that in their daily living with the Lord Jesus, His prayers were different from prayers they did.

They observed the LOrd;s daily prayers and saw fervor, devotion, humility, and intimacy with God, so one them asked the Master to teach them to pray.

This humble request drew a surprising response from the Savor. He explained that prayer is not an exact recital of words, much less a method that automatically guarantees answers, but a conversation between son and father.

In other words, prayers to God should not contain eloquent expressions of religious repetitions, but sincere words from the depths of the soul that show thirst to possess and maintain intimacy with the Most High.

Only those who are gifted with pure faith are able to submit to the Most High to the point of following directions that humanly speaking sound crazy.

Deuteronomy 14: Improper Mourning

Published

on

As a sign of mourning or reverence to the dead, some people would cut and leave marks on their body.

The Most High never accepted these practices It is incoherent to think He never accepted these practices it is incoherent to think He approves of acts of self mutilation or any other kind of disfigurement to the body, for He treats His chosen ones as a special treasure.

Although in modern society these habits are associated with fashion, we should not imitate them. Instead of cutting your body – which is the Temple of His Spirit -, we should cut off pride, unbelief, malice and any other sin that separates us from the Most High
