‘My food is to do the will’ – John 4:34 | ‘Our God is able’ – Daniel 3:16-17
‘Nevertheless, Your will be done’ – Luke 22:39-42
1 What is meant by the active and the passive sides to this petition?
2 In what sense is the petition, ‘Your will be done,’ the all-embracing prayer for disciples?
3 In what ways does the petition touch everyday living?
4 How hard is it to accept the will of our heavenly Father when it is not to our comfort or to the comfort of those we love?
5 How much is the petition, ‘Your will be done,’ reflected in our Lord’s life and ministry and death?
6 How can this petition shape my own living and dying?
THE THIRD PETITION
YOUR WILL BE DONE ON EARTH AS IN HEAVEN.
WHAT DOES THIS MEAN?
GOD’S GOOD AND GRACIOUS WILL CERTAINLY IS DONE WITHOUT OUR PRAYER, BUT WE PRAY IN THIS PETITION THAT IT MAY BE DONE AMONG US ALSO.
HOW IS GOD’S WILL DONE?
GOD’S WILL IS DONE WHEN HE BREAKS AND DEFEATS EVERY EVIL PLAN AND PURPOSE OF THE DEVIL, THE WORLD, AND OUR SINFUL FLESH, WHICH TRY TO PREVENT US FROM KEEPING GOD’S NAME HOLY AND LETTING HIS KINGDOM COME. AND GOD’S WILL IS DONE WHEN HE STRENGTHENS AND KEEPS US FIRM IN HIS WORD AND IN THE FAITH AS LONG AS WE LIVE. THIS IS HIS GOOD AND GRACIOUS WILL.
We value your friendship and the opportunity to share the love of Jesus together with you!
